Authorities investigate suspicious death in Otero County

The Otero County Sheriff's Office says they are investigating the suspicous death of a man. According to deputies 76-year-old Byron Griffy was found dead Friday in a home near County Road 4.5 and Highway 50 near the small town of Fowler. An autopsy will be performed in El Paso County next week to determine the exact cause of death. The CBI is assisting the Otero County Sheriff during the death investigation.

Griffy was in the news earlier this year when he pleaded guilty to one county of attempted sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust. In May, he was sentenced in that case to 4 years of probation and 150 hours of community service. Investigators have not connected the two cases.
