The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department is still trying to identify the man and hope someone will recognize him.
A Realtor showing the house in the 8400 block of South Scenic Drive discovered the body as potential buyers toured the grounds.
Investigators have searched a nearby wooded area for clues.
They say it is obvious the man was murdered.
He is described as an adult male between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall with a medium build and a long black ponytail. The victim was wearing new blue jeans and a grey t-shirt with the word "DECA" on the left breast. He also had on brown work shoes.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office tip line at 303-271-5612.
