Police release name of man found dead in Big Cottonwood Park

MILLCREEK, Utah — The Unified Police Department has identified the man found naked and deceased in Big Cottonwood Park Wednesday morning as Devin O’Donnell, 72, of Holladay.

A person walking their dog in the park saw the body of O’Donnell in a thicket of trees and called the police, officials stated.

Because he was not wearing any clothing and there was no vehicle in the parking lot, police initially had no way to identify him.

UPD stated that the cause of O’Donnell’s death was not yet known, but it was “not of a suspicious nature.”
