Read the brief update in the Daily Camera here. Copied below in its entirety:
The Boulder County coroner on Tuesday identified the homeless man found dead outdoors over the weekend as 59-year-old John Fritsch.
The cause and manner of death are pending further investigation since the autopsy was completed, the coroner’s office said.
Officers responded to a report just after 8 a.m. Sunday of a man found dead behind an unoccupied building in the 5000 block of 28th Street in unincorporated Boulder County.
The sheriff’s office previously said the death did not appear suspicious.
Again, I applaud the DC for NOT using the term “transient” as a label — one with understandably negative connotations in our city and county — for a resident who happened to be homeless.
R.I.P. John . . .
