Coroner IDs man killed near Denver homeless shelters in November

The Denver coroner’s office on Friday identified a 66-year-old man killed in November near homeless shelters in downtown Denver.

In a news release, coroner spokesman Steven Castro identified the man as Anthony Lanford.

The cause of death was from heart disease complicated by a physical assault, the release said.

On Nov. 18, Denver police found Lanford’s body at the intersection of Park Avenue West and Lawrence Street, next to the Samaritan House shelter and across from the Denver Rescue Mission. Police said he was “transient” and that no gun was involved in the death.

One man was arrested that day in connection with the homicide, police said.
