The Larimer County Coroner’s Office on Tuesday identified two of the three people killed by flash flooding in the Poudre River west of Fort Collins last week. A fourth person remains missing.
Patricia Brown, 59, of Madison, Wisconsin, died near Bellvue. David Brown, 61, of San Antonio, Texas, also was killed in the Bellvue area.
A third person whose body was found after the flooding has not been identified. Authorities have only said he was a man.
The identity of the fourth person who remains missing has not been released.
Colorado Brown posted on Facebook that his “Aunt Pat” and two parents were killed in the flooding when their family cabin was destroyed by the flooding.
“This week has been hard. The next few weeks are going to be hard,” he wrote. “Frankly I’ve no idea when it’s going to get easy again.”
The Denver Post first reported Colorado Brown’s story.
The flooding happened along the Cameron Peak fire burn scar. Several structures were also destroyed in the torrent of water, mud and other debris.
