The Bannock County Sheriff's Office received a call around 4:30 p.m. Saturday that land surveyors working near the southeast end of Nelson Lane in Chubbuck had found a body.

Sheriff Tony Manu told Local News 8 the body is too badly decomposed to immediately tell the person's gender. His office is the only agency currently investigating the incident.
