CANON CITY, Colo. (KKTV) - An investigation is underway after authorities found the body of a teenager in Cañon City on Tuesday.

Cañon City police initially announced they were investigating a “suspicious incident” in the 400 block of Gold Canon Road. Police at the scene tell 11 News they found the body of a 19-year-old male.

The cause and manner of death are under investigation. It has since been ruled an “undetermined death.”

Marian, who lives across the street from where police found the body, told 11 News that she was shocked by the incident. She said that the neighborhood, which she said mostly houses retirees, never sees such crime.

“This was just a horrific shock to everyone here,” she said. She continued, saying, “I’m just so sad because some parents today lost their 19 year old son and I just breaks my heart.”
