NORTH OGDEN — The badly decomposed body of a man was found in a wrecked pickup truck off the North Ogden Divide Road that links North Ogden with Eden on the other side of the mountain.
The Weber County Sheriff's Department recovered both the body and the vehicle Tuesday. The truck was registered to a 47-year-old male Ogden resident who recently had been reported missing. Making a positive identification, however, could take some time, according to the sheriff's department.
An autopsy was to be conducted to determine cause of death. The matter is being investigated as a suspicious death.
The department was notified about the body at 2 p.m. Tuesday after some men who had parked an overheated truck nearby noticed a blue 1988 Chevy pickup about 100 yards down a steep embankment, buried in some brush and trees.
