    An unidentified man was found on Friday, June 24th, 1983 in the Uinta Mountains at the Steele Water Trail Head between Scow Lake and Christmas Meadows Campground on the east side of Bear River by (2) Forest Rangers. The UID was found buried under rocks and branches with a fatigue jacket laying around the arms and chest.

    The man had been shot in the back of the head with a .22 caliber gun and was estimated to have been there since Nov 1982 and was suspected to be connected to a series of murders. The identification would be proven difficult as that the body was badly decomposed and exposed to the elements and animals in the area. LE checked dental records on file with penitentiaries in AZ and CO as that it was suspected the victim may have spent time there.

    LE had (2) men in custody one of the men hoping to strike a deal said his partner had admitted to several murders. The partner said he picked up sheepherders then would rob and murder them. It was suspected that the murder may have been connected to (2) cases in Summit County. LE stated they may have a possible identification of the man whom they believe to be Hispanic but said the man may never be identified.

    A note was found close to the body:
    Marlshia 268-1473, Kakala Brooklin Ave 116 Salt, Carl Dearden 855-2341, Home 272-5093

    Why do they have a possible ID, but can never positively ID him? That's horrible. They should try and do more!
