Body and pipe bomb found in Cochise County home

TOMBSTONE, Ariz. -- Authorities in southern Arizona say they've found a pipe bomb in a house where a man's body also was discovered.

The Tombstone Marshal's Office called Cochise County authorities late Thursday to say the man's body was found in the home across from a KOA campground.

The county's bomb squad and two technicians from the Arizona Department of Public Safety were sent to the scene.

The home and other outbuildings contained the pipe bomb, about five pounds of ammonium nitrate, electric and non-electric blasting caps, a binary high explosive and a large amount of fuse.

Authorities said the explosives were disposed of safely.

They said the dead man hasn't been identified yet and the cause of death is being investigated.
