BASALT – The Basalt Police Department on Friday identified a man who they found dead in his apartment during a welfare check on Monday.

Mark Andrew Janvrin, 24, died of natural causes in his apartment on Original Road, according to Basalt Police Chief Roderick O’Connor. The Eagle County Coroner’s office determined that Janvrin had a blood clot in his leg that migrated to his heart and led to his death, O’Connor said. He had been getting treatment for the blood clot, O’Connor said.

Janvrin failed to show up for work Monday morning at Total Merchant Services, where he worked as a security guard. Colleagues went to his apartment but found the door locked and no response. They contacted police to do a welfare check. Officers found him dead, O’Connor said.

Janvrin was originally from Colorado Springs. His family came to Basalt on Friday to collect his belongings.

No information was available on a service.
