FAIRFIELD, Utah, July 18, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — A body was found Saturday night near a landfill in Fairfield, and Utah County Sheriff’s officials are investigating at the scene.

The body was found at about 8 p.m. in the somewhat remote area.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon, public information officer for UCSO, said very little information is currently available.

“There are many more questions than answers at this point,” Cannon told Gephardt Daily.

He said a father and son on a side-by-side found the body and called authorities. It was dispatched as a medical emergency and, upon arrival, deputies determined that the individual was deceased.

Gephardt Daily is following this developing story and will update it as more information becomes known.
