HELENA – The Lewis and Clark County coroner’s office released the identity of the man found dead at the Gates of the Mountains last month.

The body of David Kell was discovered by two teenage boys on the evening of July 20th.

Kell was from Prescott, Arizona.

At the time Kell’s body was discovered, Sheriff’s deputies said it appeared to have been there at least a week.

The coroner’s office did not release Kell’s age or the cause or manner of death.

Officials say the autopsy results have not been finalized, and the investigation is ongoing.
