DENVER (CBS4) – Denver’s coroner on Friday released new information about the death of a man who was bailed out of jail by former Arapahoe County Sheriff Pat Sullivan.
Sullivan was arrested earlier this week for allegedly trading methamphetamine for sex and a task force has been set up to investigate the potential that Sullivan is responsible for other crimes.
The body of Sean Moss, 27, of Englewood was found in shallow water by the riverbank at 2800 Arkins Court — about 10 blocks north of Coors Field — on Jan. 26.
The coroner said Moss likely drown but that meth and GHB intoxication contributed to his death. GHB is often known as the “date rape drug.”
The office lists Moss’ manner of death as undetermined.
CBS4 investigator Brian Maass reported Thursday that Denver police questioned Sullivan as a “person of interest” following the mysterious death. Watch that report below.
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.
Records show Moss was arrested by police in Centennial Jan. 14 for third degree assault and domestic violence.
