A Western State Hospital patient was found dead Thursday in a portable bathroom on the grounds of the hospital grounds, Lakewood police said.
Lt. John Unfred said there were no signs of foul play or suicide. Detectives were investigating, Unfred said.
The man, who was in his 30s, had “grounds privileges” and went outside Wednesday evening. Hospital staff members reported him missing about 8:30 p.m. when he did not return to his ward, Unfred said.
His body was found about 8 a.m. Thursday.
