Aspenite found dead at home

Aspen Times Staff Report

An Aspen man was found dead at his Snowbunny Lane residence Saturday morning, the result of an apparent suicide, according to authorities.

Martin Brent Anderson, 30, was pronounced dead at the scene, shortly after authorities discovered his body at about 7 a.m., according to Tom Walsh, Pitkin County deputy coroner.

“Manner of death was hanging at his home,” Walsh said.

Authorities believe Anderson died sometime late Friday or early Saturday, Walsh said. A family member found his body Saturday morning, he said.

An autopsy was performed yesterday in Grand Junction, along with toxicology tests, Walsh said.

“We’re going to rule it a suicide,” Walsh said. “But there was no note, no warning, no signs, and no alcohol, that we spotted. It’s real tragic stuff.”

Aspen Police Officer Richard Pryor said police are handing the matter as a suicide, pending autopsy and toxicology results.
