Boulder County, Colo. - On Saturday, November 07, 2015 at approximately 4:35pm, deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and medical personnel with Mountain View Fire were dispatched to a medical call at a residence in the 12000 block of Columbine Drive in unincorporated Boulder County, just north of the City of Longmont. Upon arrival, deputies and medical personnel determined that the party, a 77-year-old female, was deceased. The deceased lived alone and had been found by a family member who stopped in to check on her.
