Police add that the body "had been decapitated with massive injuries to the body."

A neighbor found the body earlier that morning. No suspects have been arrested, and officials say the identity of the victim isn't being released until next of kin have been notified.

Anyone with information as to the incident is urged to contact the Albuquerque Police Department at (505)242-2677. Anonymous tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers.
