Texas man found dead in Rocky Mountain National Park hanged himself, coroner rules

Groups had been searching for Troy Green for days

ESTES PARK, Colo. - A San Antonio man whose body was found six days after he disappeared in Rocky Mountain National Park had hanged himself, the Larimer County Coroner's Office ruled.

An autopsy was completed Thursday and the coroner's office determined Troy Alexander Green, 39, died from asphyxia by hanging and that his death was the result of suicide.

The coroner's office said it would release no other info on the man's death.

Green's body was found by two snowshoers northwest of Bear Lake. An extensive search of the area had been conducted earlier but Green's body wasn't located.

Green was in Colorado for an engineering conference in Denver last Friday.  He had purchased winter gear after arriving in Colorado but did not tell his wife about his side trip to Estes Park, according to information released when he disappeared.  His wife called Denver police from San Antonio on Jan. 31 to report him missing.
