BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. – A woman’s death in unincorporated Boulder County is being investigated as a homicide after her “badly decomposed body” was found by deputies late last month.

Deputies with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office were responding to the 3900 block of Bosque Court on Aug. 29 after getting a welfare check request to check on an elderly woman.

When deputies entered the home, they discovered her lifeless body and an investigation was initiated by the agency along with the Boulder County Coroner’s Office.

Deputies said that because the cause of death is not readily evident, the case is being investigated as a homicide. “Treating an investigation of this nature as a homicide is common practice and done out of an abundance of caution,” deputies said in a news release.
