An Arizona woman was shot and killed before her body was dumped by some railroad tracks, police say. Now, officers said they arrested two men in connection to the case.
Around 1 a.m. on Sept. 5, the Tucson Police Department said officers were dispatched to a residence for reports of “unknown trouble.”
Once police were on the scene, they found a woman with obvious signs of trauma near a set of railroad tracks, officers said. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene and police identified her as 38-year-old Rebecca Felix Soto.
After an investigation, officials said they learned Soto was involved in an argument with 31-year-old Anthony Salcido Jr. in the home and soon after, gunshots were heard.
Salcido Jr. left the house before police arrived on the scene, authorities said.
