By Associated Press – 24 Feb ’15

The Laramie County coroner’s office has ruled a 34-year-old man whose body was found behind a Cheyenne-area steakhouse died of suicide.

Officials had said David Pease died of a stab wound to the chest that pierced his heart.

A co-worker at T-Joe’s Steakhouse and Saloon went looking for Pease when he didn’t show up for work on Feb. 14. They found his body outside his trailer at an RV park behind the restaurant. Officers found a large knife nearby.

Employees said they had last seen Pease late on Feb. 13.
