On Friday, Feb. 10, Stephen Felix, a 52-year-old male from Olathe, was brought to Montrose Memorial Hospital by the Olathe Ambulance in an unconscious state. Radiologic examination revealed traumatic injuries and an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage over his brain. He was transferred by St. Mary's Care Flight to St. Mary's Hospital where he eventually died despite intensive care.
An autopsy was performed for the Montrose County Coroner's Office of Medical Investigation confirming his injuries and the hemorrhage. The cause of death was the acute subarachnoid hemorrhage; however, the manner of death is still pending investigation. This case is under investigation by Olathe Police Department, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Montrose County Coroner's Office of Medical Investigation.
