Hayden man found dead


— Authorities are trying to determine the cause of death of a Hayden man found dead Thursday.

Kenneth Kopp, 49, was found dead shortly after 3 p.m. in the back yard of his home at 1100 W. Jefferson Ave. An Atmos Energy employee discovered Kopp's body while checking utility meters, Hayden Police Chief Jody Lenahan said.

No foul play is suspected in the death, which may have been caused by a medical condition, Routt County Coroner Rob Ryg said.

A neighbor reported seeing Kopp alive at about noon, Ryg said.
