A Mora County man was found dead last week in his truck, which was stuck near a river near Watrous.
Marvin Montao, 46, had been missing for a couple of days, although no one had reported him as such to authorities, state police said.
“The truck got stuck in the mud, and he was trying to dig it out. He exhausted himself and got in the truck and died,” state police Lt. Craig Martin said.
Montao was working at a ranch.
