According to the the Blaine County Sheriff's Office, the remains were found by a citizen at 12:53 p.m. in the area of  Richardson Summit in Croy Canyon.

The victim, identified as 78-year-old  Edwin L. McVey of Twin Falls, was pinned beneath the ATV and had been dead for several days, according to the sheriff's office.
