identify a spider

Asked August 27, 2015, 2:14 PM EDT

My husband killed a caramel (or lighter tan) colored) spider near our garage door. It was this color all over its body. What kind of spider do you think this was?

El Paso County Colorado spiders

At this time of year, my best guess would be a cat faced spider. Information about this and other Colorado spiders can be found in http://bspm.agsci.colostate.edu/files/2013/03/Cat-faced-Spider.pdf and http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/insect/05512.html.
