A female's body was found Sunday in an overturned SUV in the Jordan River.
Salt Lake City police did not immediately release her age or identity, pending notification of her family.
A man walking along the river noticed the mostly submerged Chevy Traverse near the Utah State Fairpark about 3:45 p.m., said Salt Lake City police Lt. John Cameron.
Swift-water rescuers dived down to see if anyone was inside, but initially didn't see anyone in the murky water. But after the SUV was pulled most of the way out of the water, investigators found a female inside.
Cameron declined to say where in the Chevy the female was found.
The SUV appears to have been in the water since at least the night before, Cameron said.
