Man found dead at RFTA park-and-ride

Aspen Times Staff Report

Robert Gillman, a Snowmass Village resident and Basalt businessman, was found dead Tuesday morning of an apparent gunshot wound, according to authorities.

Gillman, 69, was found dead beside his vehicle in a RFTA park-and-ride lot in El Jebel.

“The officer’s report states that Gillman had an apparent gunshot wound and a handgun was found at the site,” said a press release from the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.

An investigator said Wednesday he wasn’t ready to call the case a suicide. Detective Doug Winters said results of an autopsy are needed before a definitive ruling is made.

Gillman was a developer in the midvalley. His projects included part of the Basalt industrial park and the Midvalley Medical Center along Highway 82, between Basalt and El Jebel.
