Autopsy Complete: Hiker Who Died Suffered Severe Head and Internal Injuries

More is known about the death of an Illinois man whose body was found in a recreational area near the Colorado National Monument Saturday. An autopsy has been performed on Adam Roach and Pathologist Dr. Dean Havlik with the Mesa County Coroner's
office says the cause of death is multiple blunt force injuries consistent with a fall. The 26–year–old was found at the base of a hill on the Tabeguache Trail more than a week after family members reported him missing to Grand Junction authorities. Havlik is waiting to declare the manner of death until he can review toxicology test results as well as Roach's medical history.
