A woman was found dead at the Inn at Aspen Monday at about 3:30 p.m., according to a release by the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office.
Emergency personnel from the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department and Aspen Ambulance District alongside sheriff’s officials responded to a report of an “unconscious and unresponsive female” in a hotel room. Once at the hotel, on Highway 82 outside the Aspen city limits, responders determined that the woman was deceased. While the investigation is ongoing, an initial investigation conducted by the sheriff’s office and Pitkin County Coroner’s Office found no indication of criminal activity.
“However, PCSO investigators will continue their investigation into the sequence of events,” the release states. “Pending the preliminary results of the autopsy, which occurred on the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019, deputies maintained security at the scene of the incident.”
While the woman has been identified, that information will not be released until the coroner’s office is successful in notifying next of kin of the death.
“No further information is available at this time due to the ongoing nature of the investigation,” per the release.
