Body just got identified as 52-year-old Douglas Nelson, according to KSL:

SALT LAKE CITY -- Police have identified the remains found at the University of Utah Sunday. They say the body is that of 52-year-old Douglas Nelson.

Two Chevron workers cleaning up an oil spill found Nelson's remains in Red Butte Creek. An autopsy performed Monday afternoon helped to identify him.

Police say Nelson was reported missing from Summit County on August 25, 2009. He last known to be near the University Health Sciences Center five days before.

Police say Nelson activated an emergency phone just before 11 p.m. that evening, looking for a ride off campus. He was then directed to the emergency room and was seen heading that way by campus officers.

It's not Susan. Josh is breathing a sigh of relief and I'm too frustrated to say anymore.

You know... I doubt he was concerned because he knew she wasn't there. Like I don't think Scott Peterson would have been concerned if a body was found in a pond near his home. He KNEW she was in the bay, totally unconnected.

Josh knows where he put her, so he wasn't concerned because he knew he didn't put her in water or anywhere that she would have ended up in water. (IMO)

Well, what do locals think? Could he have driven down there in the weather they were having? I guess it would have taken about 9-10 hours round trip with a couple stops? Was there a snowstorm going on that far south?

It's definitely "south" and it seems to me that there was time. This is straight down the interstate, so if any road was plowed, that would be it.

It may be the cock that crows, but it is the hen that lays the eggs.

Some people on his thread think he was killed or dumped back in St. George. Would definitely be intriguing if it were Susan. I for one (and only) think there was a connection.

Pretty sure article is from Sat. with an update a few hours ago. The original article didn't say anything about the body being male or female. Just basic info.

It doesn't really snow in St George, but pretty much everywhere in between snows in December. He should have been able to, yes.

We are discussing this body in Susan's General Discussion Thread too. There is several posts with more detail about the drive and area and everything over there.
