GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” Authorities recovered the body of a man who died behind the Roaring Fork Marketplace south of Wal-Mart Sunday afternoon.

The Garfield County Coroner’s Office identified the man as Paul Friel, 47, of Carbondale.

Deputy coroner Kristin Clif­ford said Monday that Friel appears to have died of a heart attack. He was pronounced dead at about 3:45 p.m. after police, the fire department and emer­gency medical technicians responded to the scene.

Police Chief Terry Wilson said some teenagers called authori­ties after spotting the body lying about 350 feet up a dirt trail lead­ing up the hill behind the stores.

“I think the kids were pretty shook up,” he said.
