A college student from northwest Iowa who vanished last fall is now believed to be a homicide victim. The body of a former Sioux City man who’s been missing for two months was discovered over the weekend in Arizona. Tucson police say they found the remains of 21-year-old Jordan Alexander Peterson on Friday in a remote area of undeveloped desert. Peterson was living in Arizona and was last heard from on November 16th. Authorities found his truck, keys and cellphone two days later in Tucson. Investigators say the case is considered a homicide. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of Peterson’s death.
