Body Found in Suitcase Near Utah Highway
A state transportation team discovered human stays in a bag Thursday along an expressway close Salt Lake City, Utah, powers said, focusing on that it was too soon to know whether the remaining parts were those of Elizabeth Elena Salgado, the Provo lady who’s been the subject of a national missing persons alarm since a week ago.
The state Transportation Department said the group was introducing a link hindrance along Interstate 80 close to the Saltair Resort on the shore of the Great Salt Lake when a laborer detected the bag around 2:45 p.m. (4:45 p.m. ET). The specialist called the state Highway Patrol and found the body inside when the trooper arrived.
State Bureau of Investigations Lt. Jared Garcia told journalists Thursday night that the body was too severely decayed to quickly affirm its age or sex. In any case, police in Provo, around 30 miles south of Salt Lake City, told the Deseret News and NBC station KSL that they were working with state specialists to figure out if it is that of Salgado, 26, who was most recently seen April 16 close to a Provo dialect school.
Salgado’s guardians arrived Wednesday in Utah from Mexico to help scan for their girl, whom many volunteers have been searching for since she vanished.
