SALT LAKE CITY — The Unified Police Department (UPD) is investigating a suspicious death after a woman’s decomposing body was found on a frontage road off of Interstate 80 on Saturday.

UPD spokeswoman Sgt. Melody Gray said the body was found in an area near the Great Saltair. Gray says the body appears to have been in that location for several days.

Police identified the woman as 42-year-old Akosita Kaufusi of Salt Lake City. Her last known address was in Millcreek, but a records search found she has also lived in Roosevelt and Heber City.
