County Sheriff’s Report


A lightning strike in the Uinta Mountains killed a 60-year-old Davis County man camping in the woods east of Kamas at about 6 p.m. on Oct. 13. The victim was reportedly staying in the area of Hoop Lake in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

On Oct. 10, members of the Summit County Sheriff’s Office search and rescue team assisted with an underwater search for a 3-year-old girl who drowned in Lake Powell.

Using sonar equipment owned by Summit County, searchers recovered the body of Kamberlie Binks in about 110 feet of water on Oct. 11, according to the Associated Press.

Law enforcement agencies around Utah utilize the so-called remote operated vehicle owned by Summit County, which allows searchers to probe lake bottoms using an underwater camera equipped with robotic arms.

The AP reported that Binks was from South Jordan and fell into the water while playing on the dock with her brother.
