    Son of former Boulder County DA dies of apparent overdose

    Alex Hunter was Boulder County's top prosecutor during initial Ramsey investigation

    The son of former Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter, who was in office during the initial investigation into the death of JonBenet Ramsey, has died of an apparent overdose, the Fort Collins Coloradoan reported.

    John Hunter Hauck, 20, was a Colorado State University sophomore. He was found by his roommates around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday in an off-campus home in northwest Fort Collins, the Larimer County Coroner's Office said.

    According to the Coloradoan, the coroner's office said Hauck appears to have died from an overdose after consuming alcohol, marijuana and possibly prescription drugs.

    The death is not considered suspicious, but the coroner's office is waiting for toxicology results before determining the official cause of death.

    Hunter was Boulder County district attorney for 28 years and was beginning his last term in office when Ramsey was killed on Dec. 26, 1996.

    You beat me to it, Chero, I was just getting ready to post this.

    Very sad.

    The above is just my opinion, right or wrong, but please leave it at FFJ.

    Question

    Yes, very sad indeed. Why is his name different from his Dad's?

    I don't know, Zoomama. I noticed that, too. Maybe Hunter wasn't married to Hauck's mother?"

    I think he was married to her, because at the time of JB's death Hunter had two young children with his fourth wife. So, I'm guessing John was one of those and there was another. I don't know if they are still married, divorced, or what....

    Heartbreaking - no one should ever have to endure the loss of a child.

    Any death of a young person is sad. The fact that it is an overdose is sadder still. To me, this is indicative of the permissive atmosphere in Boulder and the permissive attitude this young man probably got from his father.

    Please don't judge me too harshly for saying this, because I am truly sad to see a young life end, but as for Hunter- what goes around comes around. He did a lot of damage to JB's case, knowingly and with malice. He was a moral coward, and this cowardice probably played a part in his parenting skills.
    Many children of LE feel they can get way with anything. And often do. But look where it leads. Hunter is a former DA. He had to be aware his son was using drugs, and he may not have seen this as a problem.

    I agree with what you're saying here, DeeDee. It is devastating to lose a son at such a young age. I think you explained it throroughly about Alex Hunter's parenting.

    Just my opinion.
