Snowmass Village resident found dead
Thirty-year-old James Mallin of Snowmass Village was found dead in his home on Carriage Way on Wednesday night.
The Snowmass resident, who grew up in the area, often went by his middle name, McCabe, said Snowmass Village Police Chief Brian Olson.
“That’s what most of the people around here and in schools knew him as,” Olson said on Friday.
Mallin’s roommate discovered his body in the living room of their home Wednesday evening and called 911.
Snowmass Village police arrived at the scene at about 8 p.m., according to Olson.
Preliminary examinations indicate that Mallin had died several hours earlier that day, he said.
The cause of Mallin’s death, however, remains unknown.
“Based on our initial investigation, we don’t believe there was any foul play,” Olson said. “There’s a lack of any evidence or information that would point to a homicide or a suicide.”
Olson said the results of a toxicology screening, which usually takes about two weeks, would reveal more information.
