The body of Sean Moss of Englewood was found in shallow water by the riverbank at 2800 Arkins Court, about 10 blocks north of Coors Field, on Jan. 26. Ultimately, the precise cause of Moss’ death was undetermined.

Soon after his body was found, Denver Police conducted an interview with Sullivan after learning Sullivan and Moss were friends and that Sullivan had bailed Moss out of jail about a month before his death.
