Two youth are in custody after they allegedly killed a 33-year-old Moab man.

Grand County Sheriff's Office deputies said police were first asked to investigate the disappearance of Gregorio Salazar Compos, 33, on March 29. On Saturday, they received a tip that Compos had been killed, deputies said.

They recovered his body about 10 a.m. Saturday. An autopsy has been ordered.

They also arrested two unnamed juveniles, whose ages were not released, on suspicion of homicide.
