Human Remains Found In Canyon Near Salt Lake City

Police are investigating decayed human remains found in a canyon near Salt Lake City.  KUTV reports they were found by a hiker up City Creek Canyon Saturday night in a severe state of decay. Salt Lake City Police Lt. Brett Olsen says police have little information about who the person was or how they died. Forensic investigators from the Utah Office of the Medical Examiner will look into what might have caused the death. Remains were also found at Memory Grove Park in the same canyon last year.
