Body of Kan. man found along railroad in Arizona

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) – Authorities say a body discovered along railroad tracks in northwestern Arizona has been identified as a Kansas man.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials announced Tuesday that 37-year-old Randall A. Scott, of Hutchinson, was identified from evidence found at the scene and medical examiner findings.

The body was found early Monday west of Seligman and near Peach Springs.

Sheriff’s investigators say Scott was a passenger on the Amtrak train and boarded it in Hutchinson. He was scheduled to get off in Kingman, Ariz.

They say it remains unclear why Scott apparently exited the moving train in the Seligman area about 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities say the train was examined when it reached Los Angeles for evidence.
