Colorado man found dead on Backers Island beach

Seldovia police are investigating after a Colorado man was found dead on a nearby beach.

KTVA-TV reports that two fisherman spotted the body on a Backers Island beach Saturday morning. They checked if the man was breathing and then called 911.

Seldovia police responded and declared 47-year-old Troy Dean Fisher, of Grand Junction, Colorado, dead at the scene. Fisher was temporarily working in the area.

Seldovia Police Chief Hal Henning says the body was transported to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy, but police do not consider the death suspicious.
