Utah Highway Patrol probes death of pedestrian on I-215

July 12, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Highway Patrol has identified the man who was hit and killed by a vehicle weeks ago on U.S. Interstate 215 in Salt Lake City and is asking for the public’s help to track down suspects in the possible hit-and-run.

The highway patrol said Wednesday state investigators had a difficult time positively identifying the victim as 29-year-old Brennon Robert Day of Salt Lake City because of advanced body decomposition.

Lt. Todd Royce says the body likely had been there for one to three weeks before it was discovered on July 7 on the southbound interstate in the 2100 north area.

Royce says damage to the vehicle that hit him likely would be in the right front corner of the vehicle with a possible broken headlight.

Anyone with information should call the patrol at 801-887-3800.
