    UNIDENTIFIED BODY BURIED IN BRIGHAM

    Brigham, Utah (UPI)
    The,body of an unidentified
    man found on a sand bar in the
    Bear River was buried here
    Monday.
    The state medical examiner
    said due to decomposition of the
    body, he could only conclude the
    victim drowned.
    The body was found one week
    ago by three teen-age boys from
    Tremonton.
    Box Elder County Sheriff's
    officers have searched the area
    from Cutler Dam to the Sand bar
    located east of here and
    conducted a house to house
    examination.
    The officers have found no information
    or evidence about the
    man's identity or death.
    The medical examiner's report
    said the victim was a man, 5 feet
    three inches tall, weighing about
    130 pounds with perfect teethno
    cavities or fillings.
    The sheriff's department said
    the case was closed.

    Brigham is just 30 miles north of my home...Tremonton is just a few more miles on...no idea who it could be as the only missing male around that time period in utah was taller and missing from park city...approx 100 or more miles away...might have to go visit my gf up that way and visit the library and/or historical society

    the bear river does start up by park city though and then flows through wyoming and idaho back into utah and into the great salt lake...possible if the missing man from park city fell in the river in april..spring runoff would have the river "raging" and could possibly have carried the body back down into another part of the state...but that's almost 300-400 miles...long way for a body to travel in the river

    If you ever get out that way, would sure appreciate some photos of the area and maybe his grave if it's marked.

    will do..i think we may go fishing up there this summer...right now so much flooding that the bear river is "raging" and very dangerous...i know it was the same in 1983 but not sure about 1973 and haven't found anything online regarding conditions there that year...

    Well that's a very interesting thought about the flooding. Maybe I can find something. Hope you go, sounds like a good time too !!

    i have been researching this a bit and nada....not listed as a john doe anywhere...i did email the herald asking if this male was ever id'd...hope i hear back...i really wish i could connect this man to someone either missing or id'd...if not id'd i am thinking of having someone...maybe doenetwork look into it possibly being the young man nichols missing from park city...so far fetched though
