A 57-year-old Denver man was found shot to death inside an RV at a Jefferson County Park-N-Ride lot Friday afternoon, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies discovered Matthew Hire’s body around 3:45 p.m. Friday in the Woolly Mammoth parking lot off U.S. 40 near Interstate 70 and Morrison Road, the sheriff’s office said in a news release Sunday.
A deputy on a routine patrol noticed the parked RV’s door swinging open and investigated, discovering Hire’s body inside, the news release said.
Hire had not been reported missing to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, spokeswoman Karlyn Tilley said Sunday. She was not sure how long the body had been in the RV before deputies found it or why RV was parked in the lot.
“We weren’t looking for him,” she said Sunday. “We routinely patrol those parking lots. … When our deputy saw the door was flapping open, he went up for a welfare check and when he peeked inside he saw someone in there.”
Court records show that Hire does not have any criminal history in Colorado.
