Ogden Police Identify Human Remains Found In Storage Unit
OGDEN, Utah — Police were investigating after human remains were discovered inside an Ogden storage unit Thursday.
Lieutenant Brian Eynon said officers were called to Stock-N-Lock Self Storage at 2946 Grant Avenue after people brought in by the storage facility to remove belongings from a unit smelled a foul odor, and then found the remains.
The deceased has been identified as Alice Ann Valdez, 41. Detectives were able to identify her using her fingerprints.
“The shape that the body was in and the position that the body was in — we could not confirm anything other than that — that it was suspicious,” Eynon said. “The decomposition is such that we have not identified if it’s a female or a male at this time.”
It remained unclear who had rented the unit in the past.
Police said they already had people they wanted to talk to and leads they wanted to follow.
Neighbors were disturbed by the discovery.
“I just hope things get taken care of because it’s a scary situation,” said Ramona Saucedo. “I’m even scared to come home tonight!”
Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes Valdez and has any information to contact Ogden Police Det. Travis Kearl at 801-629-8029.
