Victim ID'd After Home Explosion

By  | 

There's still no word on what caused an explosion in suburban Denver, but authorities have released the name of the person found among the rubble of the home.

The Thornton home was ripped apart by the blast, which seemed to happen out of nowhere in the middle of the afternoon on June 19. The blast was so powerful it threw neighbors off their feet and sent debris flying within a two square block radius.

The body of a 59-year-old man was found the next day. He's been identified as Gary Lee Pine. The Adams County Coroner's Office did not release a cause or manner of death.

A Thornton city spokesperson said three people lived in the home, but that two were at work when the blast occurred. Investigators are now looking into whether natural gas caused the explosion.
