CEDAR CITY — A woman's body was found late Friday night on the side of a dirt road south of Cedar City.

At about 10:30 p.m., "deputies from the Iron County Sheriff's Office responded to a suspicious circumstances call on the Tipple Road, approximately two miles south of Cedar City," according to a written statement from Iron County Sheriff's Sgt. Nik Johnson.
