“Denver authorities on Friday identified the man found dead in a blaze earlier this week at the building housing the popular Rosenberg’s Bagels and Delicatessen.
Shane Richardson, 29, was pronounced dead at the scene of the Five Points blaze.
The Denver Officer of the Medical Examiner says Richardson’s cause and manner of death remain undetermined pending an investigation into the fire.
The blaze happened about 2:30 a.m. Monday in the area of 27th and Welton streets. Firefighters found Richardson’s body in what appeared to be a closet on the building’s second, and top, floor.
Investigators have not said whether Richardson died in the fire or before it began.
No one else was in the building when the fire broke out.
Investigators are still working to confirm how the fire began, but say it was sparked on the building’s second floor in an apartment. “
