Former Jeffco Sheriff Russ Cook was found dead in his home Nov. 21.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office was asked to do a welfare check on Cook, who apparently had not been seen in several days, said Jim Shires, spokesman for the sheriff's office. A deputy found Cook dead on the floor.
There were no apparent signs of foul play, and the Jefferson County coroner's office is investigating, Shires said.
