On August 2 at approximately 12:30 p.m., a family member of William Grabusky, 65, contacted Fort Collins Police to request a welfare check as she had not been able to reach him for several weeks.

When officers checked his residence in the 3400 block of Riva Ridge Place, they found a deceased person in the home. The decedent's identity has not been determined. The Larimer County Coroner performed an autopsy on August 3 to determine cause and manner of death. The Coroner's Office is still working to identify the decedent and will release the name once that information has been determined and the family is notified.

Detectives have been unable to locate Grabusky’s vehicle, a gray 2016 Hyundai Elantra, Colorado license plate QRM176. If the vehicle is seen, please report to police immediately.
