Following a 911 call Friday (April 22) morning, Angel Fire police found the dead body of local 35-year-old Joshua Ickes at Angel Fire Mobile Home Estates.

Angel Fire Police Chief Mike Collins said it appeared that the man died alone, and local and state officials are working do determine the cause of his death. “There was no indication of foul play,” he said. “…The individual that passed apparently passed with nobody in close proximity.” Local police responded to the 911 call at 10:03 a.m. Friday, Collins said.

Angel Fire Mobile Home Estates is located in the northwest corner of Angel Fire. Collins said he cannot release much information about the death until the Office of Medical Investigation (OMI) in Albuquerque concludes an investigation. “Their field investigator has come up and is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the passing,” he said Friday afternoon. The exact cause of the man’s death might not be determined for several weeks, Collins said.
