A 54-year-old man whose body was discovered in November in a creek in the 3100 block of Pearl Parkway died of hypothermia associated with acute intoxication, according to Boulder County Coroner Emma Hall.
The man, previously identified as Terry Allen Cooper, of Boulder, was first spotted in the shallow stream at 10 a.m. Nov. 26 by a construction worker who was working on a neighboring lot. Boulder Fire Rescue crews donned dry suits to retrieve Cooper's body from the water.
Police at the time said they did not suspect foul play in the case.
Hall, in a release issued Thursday, ruled Cooper's death an accident, noting the cause of death was "determined to be hypothermia associated with acute ethanol intoxication."
