SALT LAKE CITY — A homeless man was found dead Friday morning after overnight temperatures dropped and a snowstorm hit Salt Lake City, authorities said.
His body was discovered under blankets inside a locked warehouse at Ute Carwash, located at 50 North 900 West. Police were awaiting a coroner's report but do not suspect foul play.
A winter overflow shelter in Midvale run by the private nonprofit Road Home closed for the season on March 27. The shelter closes after winter due to financial constraints and lack of demand. This year the winter shelter served 334 families, up from 232 families last year, according to Celeste Eggert, director of development at the Road Home.
Eggert said anyone in need of shelter will be accommodated at the Road Home main shelter at 210 S. Rio Grande St.
