Man found in Boulder Creek identified as CU student from Saudi Arabia

BOULDER, Colo. — The Boulder County Coroner’s Office has identified the man pulled from Boulder Creek as a University of Colorado student from Saudi Arabia.

The Daily Camera reports that 21-year-old Khalid Rafee was found facedown in a shallow part of the creek on Friday morning. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Boulder police spokeswoman Laurie Ogden said the investigation is not complete but investigators do not suspect foul play.

Authorities believe Rafee was at a bar the night before he was found.

Rafee was a mechanical engineering student at the university.
