The Pitkin County Sherrif's office says a family of four found dead at an Aspen home with high levels of carbon monoxide were from Denver and were meeting friends at the resort town for the weekend.
The sheriff's office today identified the family as 39-year-old Parker Lofgren, 42-year-old Caroline Lofgren, and their children Owen, 10, and Sophie, 8.
Parker Lofgren was a founding partner of the Denver-based St. Charles Capital, an investment bank. The Rocky Mountain News is reporting his wife was involved with several charity boards, including Girls Incorporated of Metro Denver and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. She also helped raise money for Historic Denver.
Friends found the family yesterday evening.
Sheriff spokeswoman Marie Munday says technicians found that a malfunction of the hot water and snowmelt systems led to extreme levels of carbon monoxide. She said the family arrived at the home sometime Thursday.
