Pinedale man found dead in home

SUBLETTE COUNTY, Wyo. — A Pinedale man was found dead at his home last week after a welfare visit from authorities.

Sublette County Sheriff’s Office reported it received a call October 14, just after noon, to an unresponsive male at 18 Badger Ridge Road off of Fayette Pole Creek Road east of Pinedale. Upon arrival, deputies determined the individual had passed away in his home quite some time ago.

The man has been identified as 53-year-old Sublette County resident Brett Palmer. An autopsy concluded that Palmer passed from a medical event. No foul play has been suspected.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help for anyone who had contact with the deceased during the months of September and October to contact Detective Travis Lanning to help narrow down a time line. Investigators are also looking for a cleaning business or possibly a close friend who cleaned the home prior to his family’s arrival.
