According to the police report, the man and the young woman were dating in Dec. 2011. On the 21st, the two attended a holiday party, and a witness saw the two of them leave as the man purportedly pushed her out the door. The woman’s body was found days later in a secluded area of the Ouachita National Forrest.
The autopsy report indicated that the woman died from drowning as well as blunt force trauma a few hours after she supposedly left the party. Police claim that by using cell phone records and GPS, they found that the boyfriend made two calls that night: one a short distance from where the body was found and another close to where her car was found. The police have used this evidence to issue a warrant against the man and ultimately arrest him.
Once the police found the man, they informed him of his charges. He was taken into custody without incident. A first-degree murder accusation is very serious, and the man could face a lot of jail time — but only if he is convicted. No matter the situation, it is important to remember that all Colorado residents accused of a crime are innocent until — and only if — proved guilty in a court of law.
