Cause of death undetermined, his sex offender notification was printed in paper

A man who went missing shortly after his sex offender notification was published in The Apache Junction/Gold Canyon News has been found dead.

David Henry Huck was found Friday, October 8, by Superstition Search and Rescue in the area of Tepee and Meridian Road in a semi-wooded brush area, said Capt. Tom Kelly of the Apache Junction Police Department. His notification was printed on October 4 and his family bought a missing person’s ad that ran in the paper on October 11.

The body was positively identified by the Pima County Medical Examiner. The cause of death is unknown at this time, Kelly said.

“There was not any immediate trauma,” Kelly said. “There were not any visible injuries like bullet holes or anything like that. They did a forensic scan and there was no immediate trauma to the body.”

“It’s an unfortunate situation for the family.”

Huck was arrested in 2008 after police in Colorado received a report that an adult male had exited his vehicle naked and was standing in front of an elementary school.

No students were present during the incident.

He left the scene before police arrived, according to reports, but witnesses provided a description and the vehicle’s license plate number. Huck was arrested a short time later at his home.
