SALT LAKE CITY — A body was found in a canal last night in an industrial part of Salt Lake City, in the area of the airport.

Salt Lake City fire and police responded to 2535 W., 500 South in Salt Lake City where a fire crew retrieved the body and turned it over to the medical examiner’s office that also responded to the call.
“There are no signs of suspicious trauma,” a Salt Lake City Police Department spokesman said. “The medical examiner will work to confirm the cause of death, manner and to confirm the person’s identity.”
