SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Dec. 26, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Salt Lake City police are investigating after a man’s body was found in the snow off North Temple in Salt Lake City on Wednesday morning.

The body was found near 1500 W. North Temple, just outside of the Utah Department of Natural Resources’ building, Detective Michael Ruff, Salt Lake City Police Department, told Gephardt Daily.
