COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Crews have recovered a body from a Colorado Springs creek, but investigators can’t say yet if the death is related to recent flooding in the area.

Police say the man’s body, which has not been identified, was found in the west fork of Sand Creek just before noon Monday. Department spokeswoman Barbara Miller says it’s possible the death is tied to flash flooding that hit the area beginning last week, but investigators are waiting for the county coroner to determine the cause and manner of death. She says foul play is not suspected.

Heavy rains have caused widespread flash flooding in Colorado, leaving at least four people dead. Flooding extended all along the Front Range and into some cities, including Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, Aurora and Boulder.
