Body Found In Chatfield State Park ID’d As Parker Man

September 23, 2015

Investigators say a man whose body was found inside a burning car in Jefferson County was shot.

The remains of the man, identified Wednesday as 44-year-old Jason Michael Dosa of Parker, were found inside the car on Sunday. The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says the car was found in flames down a steep embankment in Deer Creek Canyon west of Chatfield State Park.

A Gofundme site set up to help Dosa's family says he was married with two children and describes him as a "light in this world" who was looked up to by many.

The sheriff's office is asking anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in the area Sunday to call its tip line.
