Officials found the body of Dominic Di-Natale, 43, on Wednesday in Jefferson County, Colo., where he owned property. A friend had alerted the officials, saying Di-Natale was in a dark frame of mind "regarding serious undisclosed health issues," notes Fox. The county coroner called the death a suicide.
