The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the death of a man whose body was found Saturday night in the desert off 29 Road north of Grand Junction.
Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Lisa McCammon said the death has been characterized as suspicious. The body was found around 8:15 p.m. Saturday on a road for dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles. The body was about one quarter of a mile north of Interstate 70, but no dirt bike or ATV was found near the body.
A passer-by found the body and called 911, McCammon said.
McCammon said she did not have any details she could provide about how the man died.
