Columbus Police say they’ve identified a body found more than 30 years ago.

Sharon Bowen went missing from Salt Lake City in late 1982, about six months before a body was found near Hoover Reservoir on the northeast side.

An autopsy showed she was strangled, but a suspect was never identified.

Police say they were to compare fingerprints with those on file in Salt Lake City.
