    TOOELE COUNTY -- Investigators in Tooele County have identified both the body found Monday afternoon off of Interstate 80 near Delle and a possible cause of death.

    Though investigators know who the man is, they're not releasing his name yet because they haven't been able to notify his relatives. According to the medical examiner, his cause of death appears to be an overdose.

    The Tooele County Sheriff's Office was able to identify the man through fingerprint records, meaning he did have a criminal history. Deputies believe his body was dumped in the Delle area sometime early Monday morning. Now they are looking for the person or persons who did it.
    The deceased is described as a Hispanic man in his 20s.
