Authorities focus cleanup, investigation on Hunters Glen Road on the town's northwest side.


The body of a man found last week in a methamphetamine lab in Monument has been identified as 42-year-old Rodney Tigges.

An initial autopsy report showed no foul play or signs of outward trauma.

Deputies said the final autopsy report would be released after the toxicology report came out.

Tigges was found in a home on the 2800 block of Hunters Glen Road on Wednesday, November 13.

Sheriff's deputies said they were looking for a man on probation when they found the lab and Tigges's body.

The Hazmat team was later called to the house as Deputies believed the methamphetamine lab was active.
