At about 2:00 this morning 911 received a call from passersby about a man lying on the ground on the CMU campus. Grand Junction Fire responded and took the man to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
At this point in the investigation we believe the man fell from a fourth floor window of a nearby building. We have not determined the circumstances surrounding the fall, and are working with the Mesa County Coroner’s Office who will determine the cause and manner of death.
The man’s identity is not being released at this time. Once the Mesa County Coroner’s Office has been able to complete the autopsy and notify the man’s family, it will release the man’s identity.
If you have information about this incident you can provide it to investigators by calling 970-242-6707.
We will update this blog when more information is available.
