The FBI has identified several juvenile suspects in the killing of a Box Elder man last week but no arrests have been made, a bureau spokeswoman said Wednesday.
The body of Alton "Muck-tune" Boyd Alexander, 30, was found Friday near a trash bin at Wild Rose Village near Box Elder.
The FBI has not said how Alexander was killed. Kelly Kleinvachter, a special agent and spokeswoman in the bureau's Salt Lake City office, said Wednesday that the autopsy results are not complete.
The FBI is in the process of analyzing evidence collected in the case, she added.
"They lifted a bloody fingerprint off one of the vehicles" seized as evidence, she said, adding that she could not identify the vehicle.
Family members of Alexander have said the FBI impounded a white, four-door passenger car. Alexander was last seen by his common-law wife, Lori Stiffarm, leaving the couple's house in a white car occupied by five juveniles, Stiffarm said.
According to Stiffarm, the boys, ages 13 to 15, drove to the house about 9:45 p.m. and asked for Alexander. She awoke him and he left with the teens, saying he'd be right back.
At 11 p.m., Stiffarm saw headlights from a vehicle at the dump site where Alexander's body was later found.
The FBI came to her house at 3 a.m. and told her they'd found a body, she said. They later confirmed the victim was Alexander.
Alexander's body was found less than a quarter mile from his house on a dirt road that connects Wild Rose Village to a garbage dump. The body was about 50 feet from a large trash bin.
A wake for Alexander was held on Tuesday. A funeral services and a feast were held Wednesday at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church at Rocky Boy, and burial followed at Rocky Boy Cemetery.
Alexander, the father of three children, had recently become engaged to Stiffarm, according to his family.
