OGDEN -- Police are waiting on an official cause of death before closing the book on the demise of a homeless man whose body was found on the Ogden River Parkway.
Bryan Stewart, 37, was found deceased by joggers on the trail at around noon Wednesday in the area of 21st Street west of the WalMart store, said Sgt. Tim Scott of the Ogden detective division.
The site where the body was found was treated as a crime scene just to preserve evidence as investigation so far does not indicate a crime has been committed, Scott said.
"It's a death investigation, not a homicide investigation," he said. "We're just waiting on the State Medical Examiner's ruling on cause and manner of death."
Stewart had family ties in the Weber County area, Scott said, but was known to utilize local homeless shelters.
