Authorities have released the identity of a deceased man found in an unincorporated area near Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs.

A paper boy made the grisly discovery near Ridge Road and Colorado Avenue early Tuesday morning. While on his route, the paper boy spotted the body sprawled on the sidewalk. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office received the call at 4 a.m.

Authorities identified the man as 53-year-old Matthew Atencio. There were no obvious signs of trauma, but the cause of death will not be confirmed until toxicology results come back. The sheriff's department says they are investigating the death as suspicious, but do not believe it was a homicide.
