ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Detectives in Adams County are looking for clues after a grandmother and her young grandson were found dead inside their home.
The bodies were found in an apartment near Federal Boulevard and West 66th Place at approximately 8 p.m. on Friday.
Family members say they have no idea what happened and investigators are not releasing much information. The family was too upset to talk on camera but say they know in their heart the grandmother would never hurt her grandson.
Along with the family, neighbors also want to know what happened inside the building.
“It’s a crazy world,” neighbor Scott Lunetta said.
Crime scene tape left hanging across from Lunetta’s home gives him flashbacks to Friday night.
“Lady is out in the middle of the street screaming, ‘Oh my God, they’re all dead! Help!’ ” Lunetta said. “We haven’t heard anything from the authorities yet to say what’s happened. So believe me, I’m keeping my eyes peeled to make sure my family is okay.”
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office is not releasing how they died but are calling the case a homicide investigation.
The family said Raelynn Gonzales , 50, took in her 18-month-old grandson, Fabian, and loved him more than anything.
“They just moved in about three weeks ago and she was out walking her dog maybe a week ago, and my mom said she just met a really nice lady who moved in right across the street,” Lunetta said.
There is no word if there are any suspects but the reminder of the case left behind has Lunetta rethinking things.
“We keep our kids on short leashes right now. We’ll see what happens,” he said.
The family said they’re planning on holding a candlelight vigil outside the apartment building in the coming days.
