Authorities in Arizona said the body of an 18-year-old man who was in the state on vacation was discovered in a bonfire pile. According to a press release issued by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Parker League drove all the way from Nebraska to Arizona and abandoned its business at a house in Tempe. After that, his family did not know his whereabouts and did not hear from him. “I had no doubt he would find a place to lay his head. I knew he had arrived at his destination. “We texted, and that was about it,” his brother Hunter League told KNXV-TV, revealing that the last time he spoke to him was June 10.
Deputies and KPNX reported on June 12 that a body was discovered near Bulldog Canyon in the Tonto National Forest. Authorities arrived at the scene and took the body into custody. The body was discovered in a “remote part of the desert”, according to the deputies. His family members contacted the Tempe Police Department on June 15 to report him missing, according to deputies.
Authorities concluded he was the victim of murder after his body was discovered and identified. The investigation is still ongoing at this stage. “It’s hard to accept because he was the nicest boy in the world,” Hunter League told KNXV. Bulldog Canyon is located about 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Tempe.
