A Moab resident found human remains that are believed to be those of a man suspected of shooting former state park ranger Brody Young.
Lance Leeroy Arellano allegedly shot Young nine times during a routine vehicle stop at the Poison Spider trailhead in November 2010.
Moab resident Caleb Shumway, who was back in the area during his college break, reportedly found a human bone, as well as a bag that contained a handgun, near the Tangri-La Ranch southwest of Moab.Shumway was searching specifically for any evidence of Arellano’s location, according to a statement from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office.
Evidence found with the remains leads investigators to believe that they are Arellano’s; however, authorities are waiting for the Utah State Medical Examiner’s Office to make a positive identification.
Young survived the shootings and works today as the assistant coordinator of Utah’s statewide boating program.
