The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a man found in North Fort Collins on Wednesday. 

On April 10, 2024 around 12:20 p.m., LCSO received a report of a deceased person in a ditch at Highway 287 and Taft Hill Road. A worker was performing maintenance on a culvert when he found the man. Investigators processed the scene, and the man was transported to the Larimer County Coroner’s office. 

Based on evidence collected at the scene, investigators determined a possible name and a family contact for the man. While official forensic confirmation is still pending, the family has been notified. The Coroner's Office will release his identity at a later time, as well as the cause and manner of death, pending toxicology results. 

The preliminary investigation and autopsy did not reveal any obvious indications of foul play; however, investigators are still working to determine what happened to the man. Anyone with information, who has not already spoken with law enforcement, is asked to contact Investigator Marcus Simelane at (970) 498-5515. People who want to remain anonymous can also contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or 

“Our investigators and forensics team had very little information when they arrived at this scene. Using their expertise and methodical processing, they quickly gathered details and evidence to start getting a clearer picture,” said Captain Bobby Moll, who leads the Investigation Division. “While there’s still a lot of work to be done, I appreciate the rapid response that allowed them to begin the process of getting answers for a grieving family.”
