OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Police have identified the skeletal remains of a man who was suicidal when he left his home last spring.
Two hikers found the remains over the weekend in the mountains above Ogden. They were later identified as those of Roger Lynn Ward, 64, who had been missing since April 17, 2004.
The cause of death is not known, though police said he may have died from exposure to the elements. Foul play is not suspected.
