A man's body and a suspected meth lab were found by El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies Wednesday in a house near Monument during a search for a wanted man on probation.
Lt. Jeff Kramer said the identity of the man discovered at a home on the 2800 block of Hunters Glen Road, east of Highway 25 and south of County Line Road, would not be released pending next-of-kin notification.
Upon request from a probation officer to help locate a man who had a warrant for his arrest, deputies entered the home and found the man's body about 10:59 a.m. There were no obvious signs of foul play and no outward signs of trauma seen during autopsy, according to a news release from the sheriff's office. Final autopsy results were pending toxicology results.
Deputies also found a suspected active methamphetamine lab, prompting response by the sheriff's office HAZMAT team, the news release stated.
