On Saturday, a 20-year-old man was found dead by maintenance staff in a restroom at the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park in Colorado. He was armed with an AR-style rifle, a handgun, wore body armor, and had both real and imitation explosives in his possession.

This situation is ongoing, and details regarding the incident remain limited.

The individual’s identity has not yet been revealed. Written on a bathroom wall of the amusement park were the messages “I am not a killer” and “I just wanted to get into the caves.”

Additional writings were present, but they were indecipherable.

Authorities believe the man’s death resulted from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, suggesting it was a case of suicide. Sheriff Lou Vallario of Garfield County, while addressing a press conference, emphasized that there are many unknown details surrounding the incident at this time.

From CBS News:

According to the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, the man was dressed in black-colored tactical clothing, with patches and emblems that gave the appearance of being associated with law enforcement. The suspect was heavily armed with a semi-automatic rifle and semi-automatic handgun and multiple loaded magazines for both weapons.

He was wearing body armor and what appeared to be a ballistic helmet, according to investigators. Multiple improvised explosive devices, or IEDs, were discovered with the suspect and a vehicle associated with him. The Grand Junction Bomb Squad responded to the scene and they rendered the devices safe.

The Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park was swept by members of the bomb squad as well as operators from the Garfield County All Hazard Response Team to ensure no other IEDs were planted around the park or rides. Investigators said that no one in the public was at risk and that his actions were limited to the property of Glenwood Caverns.

“While this investigation is still ongoing and very active it is important to realize that given the amount of weaponry, ammunition, and explosive devices found, the suspect could have implemented an attack of devastating proportions upon our community and first responders,” said Garfield County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Walt Stowe.

Interestingly, this occurred shortly after the incident in Maine.

The case in Maine is also shrouded in mystery, with many unanswered questions.
