Body found in vehicle at Albuquerque airport parking garage

Albuquerque police say the body of a homicide victim was found Friday inside a vehicle in a parking garage at the city’s airport.

No information was released immediately about the person whose body was found after Albuquerque International Sunport security personnel contacted police about a foul odor.

Interim police Chief Harold Medina said the victim was not killed at the airport but that investigators didn’t immediately know where the homicide occurred.

Medina said the investigation was in its early stages but that detectives had some leads.

Aviation Director Nyika Allen said said airport operations were functioning normally.

Police used crime scene tape to cordon off stairwells of the parking garage while detectives gathered around a vehicle on the top level of the structure.
