DENVER (CBS4) – The Arapahoe County coroner has confirmed a CBS4 Investigates report that rock promoter Barry Fey took his own life.

The 74-year-old concert promoter was found dead Sunday at his Cherry Hills Village home.

Sunday evening, CBS4 reported that according to multiple sources familiar with what happened, Fey had killed himself. There were no signs of foul play at the scene. Fey was apparently discovered by one of his sons who had been living at the expansive Cherry Hills Village home that Fey had been renting.

An autopsy was completed Monday and Wednesday afternoon, Arapahoe County Coroner Dr. Michael Dobersen wrote, “Preliminary manner of death; suicide. Preliminary cause: pending further studies.”

Dobersen said a final autopsy report will take 4 to 6 weeks to complete as toxicology and microscopic analysis still needs to be performed.

Fey had recently undergone hip replacement surgery and had told friends he was having a difficult recovery.
