Mark Louden

— After a second body was found in the course of a week, Boulder police released additional information about Mark Louden’s death.

Louden, former editor of the Steamboat Today, was found Sept. 16 in a wooded area near his home. Boulder police told the Daily Camera on Wednesday that Louden was found hanging.

The Boulder County coroner was still investigating to determine Louden’s official cause of death. They were also investigating the death of another man found Tuesday hanging near Moorhead Boulevard in Boulder, the Daily Camera reported.

Officials said they do not suspect foul play or see any connection between the two deaths.
