Two rabbit hunters found a man's body Sunday morning in a Box Elder County field.

The body was found lying in a field adjacent to Interstate 84 about nine miles east of Snowville, according to Box Elder County Sheriff Chief Deputy Dale Ward.

"There was no obvious signs of trauma," Ward said. "The body was badly decomposed, but no obvious signs of cause of death. It is being treated as a suspicious death."

The state medical examiner will now examine the body to determined how the man died, Ward said, while the police follow leads and investigate. Ward said police believe the man was passing through the area and said they don't have anyone local missing at this time.
