Coroner seeking family of man found dead in Grand Junction

MESA COUNTY, Colo. — Investigators have identified a man found dead in Mesa County earlier this month, but they still haven’t been able to notify his family.

The Mesa County Coroner’s Office said 55-year-old Stephon Alderson was found dead on Dike Road in Grand Junction, relatively near the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company, on June 10.

“Mr. Alderson appears to have been homeless and our office is having difficulty finding any of his family to notify them of his death,” the coroner’s office said in a statement released Monday.

It appears Alderson died of natural causes, but toxicology tests are still in progress, according to the coroner’s office .
