Authorities have identified a man whose body was found Monday night on Interstate 70.
Kelly Arvin Reeves, 53, of Lakewood was identified through fingerprints, Wheat Ridge police said Wednesday.
The clean-shaven, neatly attired man did not appear to be homeless, said Lisa Stigall, a Wheat Ridge Police Department spokeswoman. He was not carrying identification.
Reeves' body was found about 7:15 p.m. Monday in the eastbound lanes of I-70 near the Tabor Street overpass, Stigall said. Several motorists called 911 to report a body on the highway.
There were no witnesses as to how the body got there, Stigall said. Investigators aren't sure whether he jumped from the overpass, walked onto the highway or was left there.
Police believe he was hit by at least one car, but he was already likely "down," Stigall said.
No driver stopped or later called police to report hitting Reeves' body, although many people called to report seeing it.

The Denver Post printed a small story about Kelly. The police finally released his identity. A detective came in to talk with B yesterday, and see if Kelly had a next-of-kin to notify. He didn't.
