Salt Lake police looking for person of interest in homicide investigation

Salt Lake City police are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a person of interest in what they believe was a homicide on Nov. 24.

The body of Michael Paul Furbush, 31, was found in a field at 1075 S. Redwood Road a week ago. The victim is believed to have been homeless, and was staying in the field “with other individuals,” according to police, who arrived on the scene at 1:58 a.m.

Police have not released any information about how Furbush died.

Police are looking for a man who was last seen wearing dark clothing and pushing a bike that had a child carrier trailer attached. The trailer contained a gray and red tent and a blue tarp. The man was last seen on Monday at about 5:15 p.m., walking south on Redwood Road, then east on California Avenue.

Anyone with information about the man or the case is asked to call the Salt Lake City Police Department at 801-799-3000.
