Investigators have found human remains an hour’s drive from where missing University of Utah Mackenzie Lueck was last seen on June 17.
KSTU reporter Erin Cox reported on Twitter that investigators had found a body in Bill Flack Park in Corinne, which is about 60 miles due north of Salt Lake City.
Lueck, 23, arrived at the Salt Lake City airport in the early morning hours of June 17, and then took a Lyft to Hatch Park in North Salt Lake city, where she reportedly got into another vehicle with an unknown man, and did not appear to be in any distress.
