Sheriff's Office Investigating Suspicious Death

May 13, 2020

On May 13, 2020, at approximately 1:36 PM, our Communications Center dispatched Manitou Springs Police officers to El Paso Boulevard in Manitou Springs on a Check the Welfare call.  Upon arriving on scene, officers discovered a deceased male inside a residence.

Due to suspicious circumstances found, Manitou Springs Police Department asked for the assistance of our Investigations Division.  

The identity of the victim will not be released until positive identification has been made by the Coroner's Office and the next of kin has been notified.  

Currently, we do not feel there is any threat to the community.  Additional information will be provided as the investigation allows.

The Sheriff's Office is asking for anyone with information regarding this case to call our Investigations Tip Line 719-520-6666.  Any information may prove valuable in solving the case and could consist of things as simple as anyone remembering suspicious vehicles or people they saw in or around the area on the date of this crime.
