Boulder police officials today said the man who died Saturday after he was found unresponsive on a University Hill sidewalk did not have any "obvious signs of trauma," but could not say whether his death was drug-related.

Boulder police responded to a report that somebody was eating their own eyeball in front of Bova's Market and Grill, 1325 Broadway, on Saturday evening, but found that what the reporting party thought was an eyeball was actually an eye-shaped glass pipe.

The man was transported to Boulder Community Health, where he was later pronounced dead.

Investigators do not believe the 49-year-old man was homeless, Boulder police spokeswoman Laurie Ogden said.

Odgen said she could not comment on whether the death might be drug-related. The man's identity and cause and manner of death will be released by the Boulder County Coroner's Office.
