Body discovered near State Capitol...

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - Police tonight are investigating the discovery of a body near Memory Grove just east of the State Capitol building.

The man was discovered by a hiker. The body hidden by bushes. Police have no idea what happened to him or who he is. But they think know where he came from.

Lt. Justin Hudson, of the Salt Lake City Police Department, tells us “Transient camps sometimes, especially in the winter time, can be pretty common in this area because of nearby roadways and everything like that but they can be also be secluded. So that’s what happened, somebody went off the trailhead this morning and found him lying there.”

Police are calling it a crime scene, but say there's no evidence of foul play.
