BODY RECOVERED IN MUDDY RIVER
Moab - The body of a 23-year-old Salt Lake City man, swept into the swollen Colorado River and drowned, has been located four days and 10 miles from where he went into the water.
The Grand County sheriff's office said a scenic river cruise crew found the body Monday at a point in the high, muddy river known as Gold Bar, 10 miles downstream from here.
Scott (sic) Crouch was outfitting two rubber rafts at the Moab Boat Dock late Thursday when a freak wind accompanying a thundershower upended the rafts and dumped Crouch into the cold, fast water.
