Man found dead in the Ponderosa Mobile Home Park in North Boulder

The body of a 67-year-old man was found in the snow by a passerby

Boulder, Colo. - This morning at 7:45 a.m., the Boulder County Communications Center received a 911 call about a frozen body that was found in the northwest corner of the Ponderosa Mobile Home Park, which is located at 4475 N. Broadway, in north Boulder. The reporting party was a passerby in the area and believed the body to be that of a female.

Sheriff's deputies, along with emergency personnel from the Boulder Rural Fire Department and AMR ambulance, responded to the report and subsequently discovered the body of a 67-year-old male resident of the mobile home park. The man lived with several roommates who indicated that they had last seen him, in his bedroom, between 11:00 p.m. and midnight the night before.

The preliminary investigation has revealed no indication of foul play, but the case remains under joint investigation by sheriff's and coroner's investigators. The man's name is being withheld pending the notification of his family members. The Coroner's Office will release the man's identity and will make the final determination as to the cause and manner of his death.

The sheriff's office case number for this investigation is 17-107.
