The Larimer County Coroner’s Office confirmed in a Tuesday release that 29-year-old Torin Thorsgard of Fort Collins was found dead in Horsetooth Mountain Park over the weekend.
His death was ruled an accident, and he died from blunt force injury to the head, the release states.
Searchers found Thorsgard near Horsetooth Rock Trail in Fort Collins on Sunday, the day after he became separated from a group of hikers and was reported missing. The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office reported that he became lost about 6:45 p.m. Saturday and search crews scoured the area into early Sunday morning before pausing the search until daylight.
The search resumed about 7 a.m. Sunday. Thorsgard was found beneath a rock ledge about five and a half hours later.
