WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) - Utah police are waiting for a medical examiner to identify a body found in the Jordan River on Monday.

West Valley City Police spokeswoman Roxeanne Vainuku says the partially-submerged body was caught in tree branches and debris in a section of the river near 3300 South and 1200 West.

Vainuku says officials don’t know how long the body was in the river but it was decomposed enough that investigators can’t determine the person’s gender or age.

Investigators don’t know what may have caused the person’s death.

A dive team removed the body and investigators are now looking for any nearby evidence.

City workers spotted the body and called police Monday morning.
