Investigation Into Brigham City Woman's Death Concludes

After more than a year of investigating, the Box Elder County Sheriff has released findings surrounding the death of Brigham City resident Nicole Barlow.

On July 23, 2016 a fisherman spotted a body floating in the Bear River near Corrine. At the time Box Elder County investigators could not determine whether or not foul play had led to the young women's death.

Box Elder County Sheriff Chief Deputy Dale Ward says investigators interviewed several witnesses and traveled to different states to talk with people claiming to have information about her death.

Detectives have also met with Utah State Medical Examiners who have determined 26-year-olds death was an accident and that the immediate cause of death was drowning due to acute morphine and methamphetamine toxicity. Ward says there was no indication of trauma.

At 14-years-old, Kerry began working as a reporter for KVEL “The Hot One” in Vernal, Utah. Her radio news interests led her to Logan where she became news director for KBLQ while attending Utah State University. She graduated USU with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and spent the next few years working for Utah Public Radio. Leaving UPR in 1993 she spent the next 14 years as the full time mother of four boys before returning in 2007. Kerry and her husband Boyd reside in Nibley.
