Randy Cook, 47, identified as homicide victim from New Year's incident

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The Mesa County Coroner’s Office has completed its examination regarding the death of Randy Cook, a 47 year-old male resident of Grand Junction, CO.

Mr. Cook was the gentleman involved in the incident on January 1, 2014 off of Unaweep Ave.

Exactly what happened just 15 minutes after the new year began is still unconfirmed by authorities. His Facebook page and the KKCO page are covered with messages of condolence for cook and his family.

The 47 year old had worked with Hill and Homes Real Estate on and off for the last 24 years. A company representative did issue a statement, "Randy was a great person, everybody's friend. it's a tragic loss our hearts go out to the family."

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office tells me they've conducted detailed interviews with those closest to the incident.. and aren't sure when additional information will be released.

A fund has been set up for Cook's three children with Alpine Bank for anyone who wishes to donate.
