Body found behind C-A-L Ranch identified

ST. GEORGE – The body of a deceased man that was found Thursday afternoon has been identified by police. So far, the cause of death remains unknown.

Area resident Joey Caruso, 46, was identified by police as the man discovered around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday in a field behind C-A-L Ranch, 2849 E. 850 North, St. George Police Officer Derek Lewis said.

Lewis said Caruso was found in a transient-type campsite where he had some of his belongings gathered. Caruso may have been temporarily living there, he said.

At this time, the cause of death does not appear to be suspicious, Lewis said. The police haven’t ruled out the possibility of a suicide, but nothing will be known for sure until an autopsy is conducted, he said.

The investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Ed. Note: The name of the deceased has been corrected.

    Shootings, thefts, rapes, domestic violence and dead bodies seem a daily occurrence in St George. No more sweeping it under the mayberry carpet.

    Just wondering why after 6 hours my post is still awaiting moderation? Is it just mine or are there so many that they need to weed through them?

      Our comment moderating is not automated, Mark – sometimes they do queue. But I am zipping through them now, appreciate your patience – nothing wrong with your post that I can see.
