Deceased Elderly Man Found In Palisade

The body of an elderly man was discovered in Palisade Wednesday afternoon and now the Mesa County Sheriff's Office is trying to determine if there was any foul play involved.

The man was found deceased late Wednesday afternoon outside of his home on Front St. in Palisade by a local pastor, sheriff's deputies and detectives were then called in to find out how the man died.

While investigators believe the man has been dead for several days, at this time it does not appear anyone had a hand in the man's death, however, that will not be ruled out until the Mesa County coroner releases the official cause of death.
