CORONOR RULES DEATH WAS FROM BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) _ A homeless man whose body was
found underneath a bridge over the weekend died of blunt force
trauma to the head, El Paso County Coroner Dr. David Bowerman said.

The man, who has not been identified, was found in a sleeping
bag Saturday underneath Cimarron Street bridge with only his head
exposed, Bowerman said Sunday.

Officers were continuing their investigation and were to use a
nationwide fingerprint search to locate the man's identity,
Colorado Springs Police Sgt. Mark Devorss said.

Police interviewed some men who had been sleeping inside an
empty boxcar near the bridge where the man's body was found. They
told police they had a confrontation shortly before the man's body
was found with a group of men who were carrying a 2-by-4.

Investigators did not know if the incidents were related.
