The Summit County Coroner’s Office reported Sunday, May 4, it responded to the death of Taylor Troutman who resided at Ptarmigan Mountain near Silverthorne.
Troutman, 22, grew up in Summit County and graduated from Summit High School, said deputy coroner Regan Wood on Monday, May 5. He recently moved back to the area and was living with his father, Bob Troutman.
Troutman and his father spoke to each other around midnight Sunday, Wood said. The 22-year-old died in his sleep sometime between midnight and 9 a.m., when his body was discovered by his father.
