The Adrienne Salinas death investigation isn't necessarily a homicide case, as police had indicated yesterday, Tempe police say this afternoon.
Adrienne Salinas' remains were found August 6 in Apache Junction.
Investigators saw no obvious signs of foul play during their preliminary look at the 19-year-old Tempe woman's remains, which were found in Apache Junction last week, says Sergeant Mike Pooley, police spokesman. But, he adds, it's too early in the investigation to say what happened to the woman, whose body was badly decomposed.
The fact that she was found in a wash is a "big concern," Pooley says.
