Denver police spokeswoman Raquel Lopez declined to search the department’s records and logs for the police report of Barry’s death, saying that would violate the department’s policy of not identifying victims.

The newspaper reported Max Barry had recently moved to Denver. Condolences for the Barry family poured in on social media.
