The death of a man discovered in Ogden is being investigated as a homicide, according to Roy police. According to Roy Police Sgt. Matthew Gwynn, the investigation began Monday when a passerby discovered the victim, Steve Bailey, 38, of Roy, in a “public area” that police have not yet revealed.
Initially, emergency crews were dispatched because the man appeared to be suffering from a medical condition. However, first responders quickly discovered the deceased man was the victim of a homicide in Roy, according to Gwynn.
The man was shot in Roy on Saturday, according to further investigation.
Daniel Johnson, 48, of Roy, was detained in connection with a murder investigation. Police have not said how Bailey and Johnson met or given any information about the shooting’s possible motive.
