Mystery Smell Plagues Utah City

In what may be an even more maddening mystery than unexplained boom  sounds, residents of a city in Utah say that they've been tormented by  an unidentified smell for over a year. While no one in West Valley City  who has caught wind of the odor can quite put their finger on its  origin, they all agree on one thing: it's horrifying. One resident mused  to a local TV station that "sometimes when you’re walking by it's like death."

More specifically, city officials describe the olfactory nightmare as  something similar to a "sewer type smell" that is "very noticeable and  very unpleasant." Remarkably, residents have been reporting the odd odor  wafting through West Valley City at various periods since last year and  recently the smell has returned with a vengeance. Last week, the city's  communications manager said, around a dozen people called authorities  with the ominous message that "the smell is back."

More on this bizarre story, including what officials think may be causing the smell, at the Coast to Coast AM website.
