Riverton PD investigating two recent suspicious deaths
From Riverton Police Department (RPD) Chief of Police, Eric Murphy:
The RPD is currently working deaths of 2 male subjects from this weekend.
A 34-year-old male from Riverton passed away in Denver after being transported by life flight from Riverton. The male was found at an address when the homeowner called and stated that there was an unknown male in his front yard. Officers arrived to find the male in distress. He was transported to Sage West Hospital and subsequently transported to Denver. The RPD is working the death as a suspicious death and is in the process of conducting interviews and retracing his actions from that night. This is an ongoing case.
The RPD also responded to a call of a deceased Riverton male (52 years old). Officers arrived, and from preliminary observations made, it appears at this point that cold temperatures were a major cause of death.
The RPD, as typical protocol, will work both deaths as suspicious until autopsies prove otherwise.
