On May 22 at 10:15 AM Spanish Fork City Police officers were dispatched to 80 North 800 East on a report of human remains being located in the back yard of a residence at the above address. An individual who resided at the residence was moving from the residence and was removing property from a cement cellar located on the property. The individual had noticed an area on the dirt floor of the cellar was sinking and he became suspicious in regards to the cause for the sinking soil. The individual was present with a friend who was assisting in removing items from the cellar.

The two individuals dug down into the dirt floor approximately 18 inches and located what appeared to be a human skull. The skull was wrapped in a blanket and plastic mesh. The two individuals immediately exited the cellar and contacted the police department.

When the individual was interviewed by police he advised that last year he was informed by an adjacent property owner that a previous tenant who resided at the property was a missing person and she had never been located. The tenant advised that he was curious into what was causing the sinking dirt and he wondered if someone or something was buried in the cellar. This is what motivated the tenant and his friend to dig in the area of the sinking soil.

The skull and other remains located will be transported to the State of Utah Medical Examiner’s office for identification.

On July 15, 1988 the Spanish Fork City Police Department received a report of a missing person. A female by the name of Peggy Sue Case was reported missing by co-workers. Peggy resided at this location where the human remains were located on today’s date.  Peggy’s disappearance was extensively investigated by the Spanish Fork City Police Department. The police department had dug through the cellar soil in 1988 and was unsuccessful in locating any evidence. Peggy resided with a male individual by the name of Michael Kurfin. Michael was identified as a person of interest in Peggy’s disappearance. Michael’s current whereabouts are unknown at this time. Peggy has been listed as a missing person since July 15, 1988.

The medical examiner’s office will attempt to identify the remains and we will continue with our ongoing investigation.
