Police Find Dead Body in Longmont Over the Weekend
On Sunday, police in Longmont recovered a dead body that was found on the St. Vrain Greenway. The body, which has since been identified as 42-year-old Michael Dougherty, of Longmont, was discovered on the riverbank between Izaak Walton and Rogers Grove parks. Police located the deceased man's body after receiving a call from one of Dougherty's friends, who was requesting a welfare check stemming from concerning comments that Dougherty had made on his social media account. According to police, the man's death is not suspicious, and they are not looking for any suspects.
