    UT - Millard Co., WhtMale UP9718, 40-60, at Sevier Lake, Dec'11

    Police recover partially decomposed male body from Utah desert


    DELTA, Utah—
    Police recovered a partially decomposed body in the desert west of Delta Saturday morning.

    The Millard County Sheriff's Office said in a news release sent out Sunday that they'd received a tip from a geologist working for a company extracting saying there was a dead body located partially in the water on the south end of Sevier Dry Lake on Friday. Investigators found a partially decomposed--skeletal and mummified--body early on Saturday morning.

    I don't remember if he was a soldier. He went missing the same week as Susan 2 years ago and ther was speculation once that there was a connection (rumor) or did he see something? as in being a victim?
    Very interested if this is him.
    Blessings to whoever the victims family is, atleast they will have closure.

    Hi....I have followed Steven Koecher who went missing two years ago from Henderson, NV. He is the person that some tried to associate with SP but LE has found no association. Steven was 30 and had moved from SLC area down to St. George, Utah before going missing in NV.

    Millard County, Utah borders Nevada. Highway 50 connects it with Ely and then all the way west to Lake Tahoe and California. It sounds like (from the article in the first post) the man was really far from any roadway.

    Officials are calling the death suspicious, saying it was found off the beaten path; there were no roads and it would have been difficult to reach. However, there was no sign of trauma on the body.

    It does not sound like a place with handy bus stops nearby so there should be an associated vehicle abandoned somewhere close if he got there on his own and wasn't dumped.

    They searched for Susan just west of Delta in Ely, NV and then again just south of Simpson Springs, UT where JP said he went camping.

    Possible JP or Steven passed along Delta, imo. Steven had been in N Utah from St George's the week prior to his disappearance.

    ETA: They are saying a male in his 40's or 50's. Steven was just 30.

    Cal stands for California (the hat). California Golden Bears. If you google it, you'll see the same logo for Cal.

    I think the "Stretch" label shirt is from the Gap. Those were popular around 2002/2003.

    Well, now not so fast. Don't know what they do in Nevada or Utah, but if someone is missing and they leave their car in the Forest Service parking lot in New Mexico, they apparently just tow it.

    "It looks to me like somebody dropped the ball on this one," Matulich told the Silver City Sun-News. "Why'd they tow the truck? Who towed the truck?"

    Unbelievable...
