Norway Police Formally ID Corpse as Missing Utah Attorney

Wednesday, 10 August 2016 07:52 AM EDT

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Police in Norway say the body of a man recovered from a Norwegian waterfall has been formally identified as missing Utah attorney Kent Richard Hart.

Police spokesman Pal Mikkelrud says DNA samples led to the identification, and Hart was the only person reported missing near the Hivjufossen waterfall in Hallingdal, southern Norway.

Mikkelrud told The Associated Press on Wednesday the body would be released immediately.

He said Hart, 51, was killed when falling more than 20 meters (66 feet) on July 24 into the waterfall, which is 220 kilometers (136 miles) northeast of Oslo. He was part of American tour group.

The body was found Aug. 3 after efforts by divers and rescue teams with dogs had been hampered by bad weather, difficult terrain and strong currents.
