UTAH COUNTY, Utah, April 16, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah County Sheriff’s officials are asking for information in the suspicious death of Elizabeth Salgado, whose body was found on May 18 of last year.

“… while no arrests have been made in her death, detectives continue to follow up on leads and evidence collected during the investigation,” a UCSO statement says. “Anyone who thinks they might know something about her disappearance or death is asked to call Detective Bullock with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office at (801) 851-4010.”

Salgado was last seen onĀ April 16, 2015, walking away from the Nomen Global Language School at 400 West Center Street in Provo. It is possible that Elizabeth’s disappearance looked normal — perhaps she got into a car with someone she knew, or was walking with a friend or an acquaintance, and nothing looked out of the ordinary.”

Salgado lived in the area of 1700 N. 450 West, Provo.

“If anyone remembers seeing a young Latino woman walking between these areas on that date please call Detectives at the number listed above,” the Utah Sheriff’s Department statement says.

Elizabeth’s body was found in a remote part of Hobble Creek Canyon. It is unknown whether she arrived at that location before or after her death.

“If anyone was in the area of Hobble Creek Canyon, in the mountains above Springville, and saw anyone near the end gate at the end of the right fork of Hobble Creek Canyon and saw a vehicle that would have continued up the canyon on April 16, 2015, please call detectives at the number listed above,” the UCSO statement says, adding that “forensic examination of Elizabeth’s remains revealed few clues telling exactly how she died.”
