Posted at 5:35 AM, Jul 05, 2024

FOUNTAIN, Colorado — Investigators cleared out but we are staying in contact and still trying to figure out what happened.

Let's break down what we know so far:

  • Fountain PD tweeted
  • Last night just after 10:30 pm
  • A deputy with El Paso County Sheriff's Office was on a patrol noticed a problem.
  • He saw a woman lying in the road
  • Fountain fire and PD arrived and began life-saving measures but were unsuccessful
  • People in the area told officers they thought she had been shot.
  • Fountain PD says it was determined that she was not shot or hit by a car.
  • The cause of death is still under investigation

We’re still trying to make sense of all this for you. If anyone saw anything, officers ask you call CrimeStoppers at 719-634-stop (7867) We’ll keep working to uncover more details and will make those available to you as soon as we know more.
