RIVERTON -- A Riverton city worker found dead at the bottom of a manhole was identified as 54-year-old Danny Crump.

Crump was found in the area of 11800 South and 1850 West Tuesday night.

The Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office says Crump worked for Riverton's water department. Another worker noticed an open manhole and saw the man's body.

Investigators aren't sure how or why the man ended up at the bottom of the manhole. They're trying to determine if he had a medical problem.

They say there are no signs of a "dramatic death."
