Detectives are searching for two people in connection with the death: Kristie Marie Hansen, 26, and Javier Rodriquez Pena, 29. After speaking with people who were at the hotel Tuesday, police believe the pair were in the area and were somehow associated with the victim, Salt Lake police detective Greg Wilking said.

Police did not release a possible cause of death for Lindberg on Wednesday or say whether she had obvious signs of trauma.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them at 801-799-3000, and to avoid approaching the pair.
