Draper police believe they have identified the body of a man found over the weekend near the South Mountain Golf Course. Tuesday, they were waiting for confirmation of the man's identity.
The body of a man between 16 to 25 years old was found by hikers Saturday in a water-filled gully near the golf course. An autopsy revealed no sign the man died due to a violent act, said Draper police Sgt. Gerry Allred. Investigators are now waiting for toxicology tests, hoping they will reveal more information about how the man died.
The man was carrying ID. Relatives of the person in the ID, who live outside Utah, were contacted by police, Allred said. Investigators will now either wait until those people can travel to Utah to determine if the body is that of their relative, or investigators will see if there is a fingerprint on file of the man who's ID was found and see if it matches with the body, Allred said.
The ID found on the man, a Utah ID, belonged to a 29-year-old man, he said. There was no evidence Tuesday the death was the result of criminal activity.
