PHOENIX — Police officers have arrested four suspects in connection to the death of a man in Papago Park on May 23, the Scottsdale Police Department said.

In addition to the arrests, Scottsdale police are asking for public assistance in locating 23-year-old Quincy De'Omunique Marquis, who they believe is also connected to the case. 

The suspects, identified as 28-year-old Edward Hughes, 24-year-old Leeontay Munns and 23-year-old Anya Bobo, were arrested on felony charges related to the death of 29-year-old Scottsdale resident Julian Gonzales, the department said. 

Another man, 23-year-old Quincy De'Omunique, turned himself into police in Oregon on June 3. He will be transported back to Arizona.

Officers were first called to the scene near the intersection of Galvin Parkway and McDowell Road in reference to unknown trouble at around 8 a.m. on May 23, the department said. Officers found a dead body after arriving at the scene and being directed by the caller.

The dead body was located on a nearby trail, police said. When detectives arrived on the scene, officials said they noticed blunt force trauma on the victim.
