Park City man found dead in Park Meadows

A Park City man died sometime on Saturday outside the Park Meadows house he lived in with roommates, the Park City Police Department said.

Bradley Wayburn was 48 years old.

Rick Ryan, a police captain, said a roommate discovered Wayburn’s body and called 911 at 7:42 p.m. Ryan said Wayburn went into the backyard to smoke a cigarette sometime after 2 a.m. the morning before his body was discovered. Nobody else was home at the time.

Ryan said a roommate returned, noticed the garage door was open and closed it before looking for Wayburn. The roommate found Wayburn on the ground in the snow on a back patio and called 911, Ryan said.

Ryan said there was no evidence of trauma. It was not clear at the beginning of the week whether an autopsy had been conducted. Ryan said one was planned.

He said the death was not suspicious and said it was the result of a "tragic accident."

The Ira Kaufman Chapel in the Detroit suburb of Southfield, Mich., indicated a funeral is scheduled on Wednesday. An obituary was not available.

Ryan said friends told the police Wayburn’s career was in the real estate investment industry.
