    Check the police department which made the arrest directly. The process in requesting them is on their site with forms. Other wise, if the case went to court, sometimes you can find the police report in the case's file.

    Use the Utah Division of State History https://heritage.utah.gov/history/cemeteries Look for the link: Search for a Person Buried in Utah, on the left side under cemeteries and burials. There is the option of searching by the person's name or by cemetery. You will probably not see the cause of death, but you will see the date of death, burial and location along with few other details.

  • Q: What specific criminal records are kept on an individual? For example, is the criminal CHARGE kept, or the criminal CONVICTION, or both?
    By Kendall
    Feb 28, 2015
    Reply:

    Viewing charges alone, without conviction is different from criminal records. There are many entities that will be able to obtain criminal records and provide them for a fee. Arrest reports are kept by police departments and provided by requesting the official incident report (or any other term used to describe police reports). Police departments maintain records divisions within their departments to service public requests. Although arrest records are deemed public record, there are restrictions in obtaining them by the general public. If you are not looking for an official report, there are other means of obtaining information about arrests. News organizations, many of which are easily found online, publish recent arrests (you can choose earlier publications also), the charges are often written into list of names with photos. Local law enforcement agencies make a majority of the arrests across Utah, an inmate search (when available) will produce a list with information of persons in custody. The inmate search and many of online published news of arrestees are free to search by the public.
