LINDON, Utah — Four more teenagers have been arrested in connection to the death of a 16-year-old boy near a popular trail in Lindon.

Officials with the Lindon Police Department said Thursday that those individuals are between the ages of 16 and 17 years old, adding that their identities and criminal charges will not be released due to their ages.

The announcement comes a few days after a 16-year-old boy was also arrested in the case.
