MAGNA, Utah -- A woman whose body was found by a jogger near the Great Saltair Saturday has been identified.

Officials with the Unified Police Department say the victim of the suspicious death is Akosita Kaufusi, 42, of Salt Lake.

Police didn't release any additional information Sunday. It was unknown under what circumstances Kaufusi may have died.

The body was found next to the Great Saltair music venue. A witness told Fox 13 that he comes around here often and has never seen anything like this around here. He was shocked to see the police and a body bag.

Anyone who may know her is asked to call 801-743-7000.
