A Delta physician whose body was found Tuesday morning apparently killed himself.

Millard County Sheriff Ed Phillips said Dr. Robert F. Monsen, 36, had slash wounds on his wrists.Monsen's body was found in the back of his pickup truck in a remote area of Millard County, about 40 miles from Delta. He had a bullet wound in the upper chest, and a rifle was found 18 inches from the body.

The state medical examiner concluded the gunshot wound in itself was not fatal. He likely died Monday night or early Tuesday.

Monsen was the father of four and a bishop in his ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was a staff doctor at the Delta Community Medical Center.
