UPDATE: Deputies release identity of body found inside burned out car

LOGAN — Deputies have released the identity of a body that was found inside a burned out car near Petersboro, December 19.

A press release from the Cache County Sheriff’s Office said state medical examiners had identified the remains of the person found as Clint Yonk, a 47-year-old man from Petersboro.

Yonk’s body was found by deputies when they were called to the scene of a suspicious vehicle found on private property. It appeared to have been destroyed by fire. The vehicle was found by Yonk’s family, who had gone looking for him, after he had failed to return home after several days.

The press release also said investigators, reviewing evidence and conducting interviews, believe that the incident was accidental. They are waiting for the Utah State Medical Examiner’s final report though on the exact cause of death.
