WASHINGTON COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) – A male’s body was found in central Washington County Saturday afternoon around 11:30 am. 

Hikers stumbled upon the body while they were hiking near Washington Hollow Trail.

Police called in search and rescue crews to remove the body.

Police say the body has been decomposing for about two weeks, so it’s really hard to identify. 

A medical examiner will examine the body, which could take up to two weeks. 

Police are not able to rule out foul-play.
