Phoenix police are investigating what led to the death of a 35-year-old man whose body was found wrapped in a blanket in an alley Wednesday, authorities said.

Phoenix police said they were called to an alley just north of 2700 West Devonshire about 1 p.m. Wednesday after an area resident who was walking through the alley saw what they believed to be a body.

Police said the victim has been identified as Joshua C. Calkins.

Calkins' death is being treated as a homicide because of obvious signs of trauma, Phoenix police said.

If you have information, call Phoenix Police Department's Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6151 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.
