    Looking at Logan Canyon on Google maps, it looks like there is a walking trail, but not tons of trees.

    Logan Canyon is pretty big and steep, but if they had an idea where to look, the search and rescue group could do it. I'm more amazed he'd travel there with a corpse, or pieces of one. It isn't a straight shot up a highway - and there's multiple ways to get there, so it depends which one he took. Any are risky, IMO. I'm in Salt Lake now, but I'm originally from Northern Utah, so I'm quite familiar with the Logan area. Pretty amazed he'd take such a risk.

    I think I remember reading that flesh takes at least an hour to burn and bone takes several hours, depending on the temperature of the fire.
    Neighbors stated he had a fire going on the 17th and 18th. I wonder if he burned her body down to the bone and took what was left to the canyon.
    He must have been trying to burn something substantial to keep the fire going that long. Imo

    I don't think there were mistakes in the forensic tests from the fire pit. And I thought of Jessica's case as well.

    I’m guessing he tried to burn her body and discovered he couldn’t so he then dumped her body. The utter disregard for life and then throwing someone away like trash is absolutely disgusting and appalling. I hope this *** rots in hell.

    The DA said:
    "Working together... the product of our efforts created a significant opportunity and a lead... and it seemed to indicate the we may be able to locate the possible remains of McKenzie Lueck" and they did.
    This to me doesn't sound like AA fessed up as to where they could find ML's body. This sounds like they were able to figure it out themselves based on evidences that they have gathered. MOO

    I do too. I feel they took the death penalty off the table for him to tell them where her body was

    I'm not convinced he actually has very much knowledge of technology. MOO.

    Her hair would’ve burned very quickly. And it smells horrible.

    Can we even hope the ME might find a COD? I thought that would be virtually impossible if there was only charred tissue left, but we may get more answers now.

    I’m thankful her family will be able to lay her to rest.

    I’m thinking maybe he tried to burn her and was unsuccessful as had been mentioned in here that body burning won’t work the way criminals believe it will.
    Maybe then decided to bury her somewhere many miles away?

    Yes, good point, but wasn't it described as "charred human tissue?" Or were those the words of the media? I would have to look back to be sure. If LE described it as charred, I don't think they were talking about blood. MOO

    I sincerely hope her body is in good enough condition to determine a COD. We've had unusually cool weather in SLC lately, to the point where ski resorts stayed open for 4th of July skiing; I'm hoping that slowed the decomposition process.
