Investigators were not immediately sure how long the body was in the water.

Officers turned the body over to the state medical examiner’s office, which will work with South Jordan detectives on the victim’s identity and how he died.

Authorities closed the Jordan River Parkway Trail while investigators combed the river for clues.
