Missing River Falls teen found dead in Utah canyon


The 19-year-old man from River Falls who hadn't been heard from in more than a week was found dead in a ravine in central Utah Saturday.

The Pioneer Press reports Donovan Campbell drove his Ford Ranger to Eagle Canyon, a place he loved visiting as a child.

It's unclear if his death was accidental or the result of a suicide. Family members told police that Campbell suffered from depression when they reported him missing on April 8.

Campbell's grandfather, Dean Campbell, said authorities told him that his grandson may have slipped and fallen.

A 2011 River Falls High School graduate, Campbell was a mathematics major at University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
