CEDAR CITY, Iron County — A man whose remains were found in a drainage tunnel under I-15 in Cedar City last month has been identified, police said Monday.
The man, who was discovered on Dec. 28, was identified as Johnny Dale Rollins, of Cedar City.
Rollins was reported missing from his home in March 2018, according to police. At the time, family members said he was experiencing health issues, including early stages of Alzheimer’s.
His skeletal remains, which were “in an advanced stage of decomposition,” were found in a tunnel under I-15 by two juveniles walking through the area, police said.
Investigators said they do not know what caused Rollins’s death, but foul play is not suspected.
