Castle Rock police identify man whose death they're calling suspicious

Caesar Velez, 37, was found injured near a roadside Easter Sunday


The Castle Rock Police Department has identified the man killed Easter Sunday as 37-year-old Caesar Velez.

Police discovered Velez lying injured by a roadside near the 100 block of Prairie Hawk Drive at 5:49 p.m. on April 1 after a citizen reported an unresponsive male lying on the ground in the area. Velez was taken to an area hospital, where he later died.

“Injuries were consistent with blunt-force trauma,” said Joe Cybert, a Castle Rock Police Department spokesman.

Police are calling his death suspicious, although there are no updates to the investigation, Cybert said. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the police department's non-emergency number, 303-663-6100.

Loved ones of Velez posted to Facebook following his death, calling him a good friend and father, urging anyone with information to contact the Castle Rock Police Department.
