Lenado man dies at home
Lenado resident Oliver Treibick was found dead in his home Saturday morning, according to authorities.
Treibick, 53, had a family history of heart disease and is presumed to have died from natural causes, according to Pitkin County Deputy Coroner Steve Ayers.
“It’s an apparent natural death at home, pending investigation and the results of the autopsy,” Ayers said.
An autopsy was performed Saturday in Grand Junction, which is normal procedure for all “unattended deaths,” Ayers said. Results from the autopsy, as well as several standard tests performed as part of the procedure, will be returned in three weeks’ time, he said. At that point, a cause of death will be determined.
“It looks like a natural death and there was a family history of heart disease at an early age,” Ayers said. “That’s fairly consistent with what we found.”
Ayers said Treibick’s companion found him early Saturday morning in an “unresponsive state and she called the ambulance.”
Authorities received the call just before 7:15 a.m. Saturday. Pitkin County Sheriff’s deputies and Aspen Ambulance paramedics responded to Treibick’s home and confirmed the death, according to a written statement from Deputy Scott Thompson.
