Authorities have released shocking new details into the recent discovery of Michael Cavallari's remains.
According to Utah's Grand County Sheriff's Office, the body of Kristin Cavallari's older brother was found at approximately 10:30 am local time.
"At this time, the body is being transported to the Office of the Utah Medical Examiner for positive identification and to determine the cause of death," an official statement on the office website read.
Search crews discovered the remains in the Salt Wash area, near exit 175 on I-70 in Grand County.
"The terrain where the body was located is a steep and very rocky area," the statement continued.
As RadarOnline.com reported, the 30-year-old's car was found abandoned off a dirt road in the county. He was last seen in gas station surveillance video in Monticello on November 27, the day after Thanksgiving.
Michael was deep in legal trouble in the years before his death. Just four days before his disappearance, he was arrested for threatening a woman with a shotgun.
He also had at least two DUIs under his belt, and an arrest for theft.
