Jefferson County, CO. – At 1:15 a.m. on Monday, September 21, Jefferson County deputies responded to a report of a house explosion in the 8100 block of Stags Leap Trail. Upon arrival, the home was fully engulfed but Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District and surrounding fire districts were able to contain and extinguish the fire. On Monday afternoon, when the structure had cooled sufficiently to search for the fire’s point of origin, human remains were discovered at the site.
The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is leading the investigation into the death of the individual whose remains were found. Once known, the identity of the individual will be released by the Coroner’s Office.
