Castle Rock police investigate suspicious death

Man found injured near roadside Easter evening


The Castle Rock Police Department is investigating the death of a man found lying injured on a roadside on April 1 who later died of his injuries. Police are calling the death suspicious and asking for the public's help in gathering information around the incident.

The 37-year-old white male victim has not yet been officially dentified, according to the Douglas County Coroner's Office. An autopsy is scheduled for April 3.

The man was found near the 100 block of Prairie Hawk Drive in Castle Rock at 5:49 p.m. after a citizen called police to report a man lying on the ground near the roadway. He was transported to an area hospital, where he later died.

“Injuries were consistent with blunt-force trauma,” Castle Rock Police Department spokesman Joe Cybert said.

Further details of his injuries were not available prior to the autopsy. Early in the investigation, police searched for a white SUV seen in the area near the time the man was discovered. Cybert called the white SUV a “vehicle of interest,” saying it “entered the area just prior to the victim being discovered and was in and out of there pretty quick.”

Police announced the evening of April 2 they had located the vehicle and determined it was unrelated to the investigation. 

Police believe the man was living in Castle Rock at the time of his death, although he had moved throughout the Denver metro, Cybert said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call the police department's non-emergency number, 303-663-6100.
