A suicide occurred Sunday night in a public place in Chaffee County.

According to scanner traffic, which is not always a reliable source, the incident happened at the Collegiate Peaks overlook near Buena Vista.

No other information was available at press time.

Sheriff John Spezze said his office does not release any information on suicides “out of respect” for their families.

County Coroner Jeff Graf said next of kin had not been notified and declined to comment further.
