The deceased person whose remains were found in a bonfire pit in Tonto National Forest last week was identified as a missing 18-year-old man.

Parker League’s death was considered “malicious” after his remains were found on June 12 in a desert near Apache Junction in the area of the Bulldog Canyon-Hackamore.

Investigators revealed that League was visiting from another state and staying at a Tempe residence where his belongings were found.

Following the gruesome discovery of his remains, detectives focused on collecting DNA and other evidence from the scene and tracking down the victim’s cellphone data.

“It also speaks to potential suspects as being potentially familiar with that area and/or wanting to have some sort of solitude to commit the heinous act or dump the body,” former Phoenix Police Department homicide Sgt. Troy Hillman.
