October 22, 2009
ASPEN – A 20-year-old man was found dead in a hot tub at the Prospector Condominiums late Wednesday morning, Aspen police said.
The victim’s name was not available as of press time. Police were attempting to notify family victims before releasing the name.
The man had been in Aspen with a Denver firm that specializes in the installment of high-end blinds, said Aspen police detective Chris Womack, the lead investigator in the case.
Womack said, “It doesn’t appear that there was anybody else involved in his death.”
A coroner’s report is pending.
“We don’t know if he drowned or not,” Womack said.
Police said they received a 911 call about the individual, who was reportedly unconscious and not breathing, at 11:29 a.m. Attempts to revive him with cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and automatic external defibrillation were not successful, police said.
