WASHINGTON COUNTY — A body found in the Virgin River earlier this month has been identified as Rockville woman Mary Soper.

Police discovered Soper’s body Sept. 12. She was reported missing two days earlier.

It appears Soper’s body floated 30 miles down the river before it was discovered, police said.
