Gravestone found in Adams County(Photo: David Lee Perez)
ADAMS COUNTY - A 9NEWS viewer found a mysterious gravestone when he was working in Adams
County on Wednesday.
According to David Lee Perez, "I would feel disrespectful if I didn't try to find the loved ones of this person."
He originally posted the photo of the headstone on the "You know you're from Denver when ... " Facebook page. He originally found it near West 65th Avenue and Federal Boulevard.
The Adams County Sheriff's Department started to investigate once 9NEWS contacted them regarding the post.
Public Information Officer Jim Morgen said his detectives went out to get the gravestone, but they had to use a crane to lift it. The headstone weight around 650 pounds.
Deputies are still investigating to see how long it has been in that area and to track down information about the name on it.
If you know who this gravestone belongs to, please call the Adams County Sheriff's Department at 303-654-1850.
