Unattended Death

7500 block Overland Road

Boulder County, Colo. --On Friday, September 23, 2016, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to the 7500 block of Overland Road, in unincorporated Boulder County, Colorado, on the report of an abandoned vehicle, which had been at this location for a few days. There was concern on the part of the caller, as the car windows were rolled down, the key in the center console, and a child's car seat inside the car.

Sheriff’s deputies responded and determined that the car listed to an address in the City of Longmont, Colorado. They then began searching the area around where the car had been found, and in a forested area a short distance away, found a deceased individual. Deputies determined the body was that of a male in his early 20’s, and that he was alone.

Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives, along with an investigator from the Boulder County Coroner’s Office are investigating the unattended death. At this time, there are no signs indicating the death is suspicious. The name of the decedent is being withheld until next of kin can be notified. The Coroner’s Office will release the decedent’s name at a later date.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office case number for this investigation is 16-5915.
