Police are investigating the circumstances of a man’s death in Salt Lake City’s Memory Grove.

Salt Lake City police Detective Rick Wall said Tuesday that they were withholding the identity of the deceased, a man in his 30s, pending notification of his family.

A passerby walking his dog late Monday afternoon reported finding the body near 500 North and Canyon Road.

While police did not yet have an official cause of death, no obvious signs of trauma or foul play were found on his remains.

Memory Grove has been a favorite camping locale for transients and abnormally cold overnight and daytime temperatures over the past week could be deadly.
