The Leadville Police Department is investigating the death of a man found Monday morning within the city’s limits, 5th Judicial District Attorney Bruce Brown confirmed Tuesday.
The man was discovered at approximately 8:30 a.m. His age and identity are being withheld until next of kin are notified, Brown said.
Although the man’s death does not appear to be the result of a homicide, it does appear to have been “unnatural,” Brown said.
Leadville police are leading the investigation, which is ongoing, Brown said. The district attorney’s office also is conducting a precautionary investigation.
