A Rico business owner was found dead Sept. 5 on the Colorado Trail, according to the Dolores County Sheriff’s Office.
The Dolores County coroner identified the body of Peter Kinnick, 61, owner of the Rico Hotel.
Hikers found him on the Colorado Trail where it intersects with the Black Hawk Mountain Trail. He was airlifted to Rico by Olathe Spray Service.
Earlier, a hotel manager reported Kinnick left to go for a hike but had not returned. The Dolores County sheriff said there was no evidence of foul play.
An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.
