CLEARFIELD, Utah, Aug. 4, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Clearfield police are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information after a man was found shot to death in his home in December.

On Dec. 7, 2020, the Clearfield Police Department responded to 352 N. Bruce St. regarding a man who was found deceased in his residence, police say. The man was identified as 53-year-old Kelly Robert Bodily.

“When the initial officers arrived, they immediately noticed what appeared to be traumatic injuries and further investigation determined Kelly sustained gunshots to his upper body,” the news release said.

The investigation division is continuing to follow up on information and is working with forensic and DNA experts in hopes of identifying a person or persons of interest.

“We believe Kelly was murdered on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2020, between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.,” police said. “We have confirmed that Kelly died of injuries sustained from bullets fired by a 9 mm handgun.
