TUCSON -- A young man and woman have been found dead the Tucson area in what authorities say was a double homicide.

Suitt says in a release that deputies found the two on the ground in front of the residence. Both were dead and had obvious signs of trauma.

The sheriff's department identified the man as 23-year-old Pluma-Blanca Jose Manual Navarro Cazares and the woman as 22-year-old Vanessa Butler.
