A week after a man was found dead in a drainage ditch behind the Boulder Target store at 2800 Pearl St., the Boulder County Coroner's Office has yet to publicly identify him.
Boulder police officials have only said the body was that of an adult male. The body was found at 10:10 a.m. April 15 in the water, and the Boulder Fire Rescue dive team was called to retrieve the body.
The body was turned over to the coroner's office, but officials said today they did not have a name to release and declined to comment further on the case.
Boulder police spokeswoman Kim Kobel said at this time the case is being treated as a death investigation. It is not known if foul play was involved, and there was no obvious cause of death.
The discovery of the body behind Target came less than two weeks after the bodies of two transients were found outdoors in Boulder.
The body of Janice Adams, 53, was discovered April 4 in the area of the Boulder Creek Path underpass near the intersection of Arapahoe Avenue and Broadway.
On April 5, the body of Ralph Devore, 51, was found just east of the intersection of College Avenue and Broadway on the University of Colorado campus.
Those two cases are not believed to be related, and foul play is not suspected. The Coroner's Office has not issued causes of death in either case.
The Coroner's Office said it has not yet been determined if the male found behind Target was also a transient.
