The Jefferson County Coroner's Office has ruled that Eric Pracht died from suicide.
Pracht's remains were discovered by a hiker on April 23 at a Green Mountain trail near the intersection of West Alameda Parkway and West Utah Avenue. When police investigated the site of Pracht's remains, they found a gun believed to be his.
Pracht had been missing since around midnight on July 22, 2016 after him and his fiancée had friends over to their Lakewood condo — located near Green Mountain. The group was talking about violence toward police, and after the talk, Pracht said he needed to get fresh air. He then stepped outside and was never seen again.
The Lakewood Police Department said in a release that its thoughts are with the Pracht family.
