(Body found in the desert)….It could be that of a man reported missing from New Mexico.
69-year-old Robert Mallone reportedly disappeared from his home in New Mexico several months ago. Late last week, an employee working in the desert found a body laying next to an abandoned vehicle in Milpitas Wash, near Smoke tree Valley. Deputy County Coroner Rodolfo Barron says it has been confirmed that the vehicle belonged to the missing New Mexico man. Barron says the body has apparently been in the desert for 3-4 months. He said they are trying to confirm the I.D. of the deceased man through dental records. Because of the condition of the body, the Deputy Coroner says it has been difficult to determine a cause of death
