Deputies investigating dead body found in Smithfield Canyon

Deputies are investigating a body that was discovered Monday in Smithfield Canyon. The woman’s body was found inside a tent and had reportedly been deceased for some time.

Cache County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Peterson said investigators suspect drugs were involved but are unsure if it was intentional or accidental. They do not believe she was murdered.

The woman’s identity is not being released, pending notification of family and the investigation.

Peterson said the woman’s body was turned over to the State Medical Examiner’s Office. They are performing an autopsy to try and determine whether the woman took her own life or died from a drug overdose.

Peterson said nothing is leading investigators to believe there was any foul play.
