Update: The man found dead on the 6800 block of South Broadway on June 25 has been identified as Martin Graw, 55. See our previous coverage below.

Original post: The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is investigating a death in Littleton last night that's described as suspicious in nature.

Does that mean it's a homicide? Not necessarily. But an ACSO supervisor tells us certain elements at the scene suggested to investigators that the death "may not be natural."

At about 6:45 p.m. yesterday, ACSO deputies responded to a residence on the 6800 block of South Broadway Boulevard, an area captured in the following interactive graphic. If you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map."

At the scene, reps from the sheriff's office were told by a 63-year-old male resident that his brother, age 55, wasn't breathing. They quickly determined that the second man was dead.

What gave the investigators pause? Bureau Chief Glenn Thompson makes note of visible blood, as well as other unnamed elements at the scene suggesting that the man didn't die of natural causes.

Thompson says the still-pending coroner's report should help investigators determine if the death was accidental or was caused by something else. In the meantime, our condolences to the deceased's loved ones.
