An autopsy is underway on a 22-year old Fort Collins man who was discovered unresponsive in a Telluride area campground in the Ilium Valley last Friday.  San Miguel County Sheriff’s spokesperson Jennifer Dinsmore says Samuel Jozef Berenbeim was declared dead at the scene.

Dinsmore says the preliminary investigation indicates that Berenbeim died as the result of natural causes and foul play is not suspected.  San Miguel County Coroner is now working on establishing a precise cause of death.
