Staff report

Local authorities have confirmed the identity of a 22-year-old man who was found dead in a Snowmass Village residence Wednesday night.

He was identified as Jake Foerster, whose Facebook page lists his occupation as a DJ-producer. A resident of Snowmass,.he also recently lived in British Columbia.

Snowmass police and emergency medical units responded to a call Wednesday in the Melton Ranch subdivision at 9:15 p.m. Wednesday, Snowmass Village Police Chief Art Smythe said.

“The report was that there was a male there who was unconscious and unresponsive,” Smythe said. “Efforts to revive him at the scene were unsuccessful, so it was an unattended death.”

An autopsy, including a toxicology test, will be conducted Friday, according to Michael Buglione, a deputy coroner for Pitkin County. Those results won’t be made public for a few weeks.

Smythe said there were no signs of foul play.

“The coroner will be the one who determines what the cause of death is,” he said.
