    PUEBLO, Colo. — A call to police about a disturbance at a Pueblo hospital has now led to a homicide investigation, according to Pueblo Police Department.

    On February 10, around 6:30 a.m., officers were called to St. Mary Corwin Medical Center located at 1008 Minnequa Avenue regarding a disturbance. When police arrived they saw medical staff rendering aid to 36-year-old Mathew Haskel Jones. Pueblo Police report Jones had been involved in a physical altercation with hospital security staff prior to the arrival of officers at the hospital.

    Jones was transported to a hospital in Colorado Springs on the date of the incident and then died in the same hospital on February 18. The Pueblo Police Department then began investigating the incident as a suspicious death.

    Following an autopsy, it has since been determined that the cause of Jones’s death was a homicide. The cause of death has not been released. FOX21 News has requested the coroner’s report for this case.
