ASPEN, Colo. (CBS4) – An investigator in the murder of an Aspen socialite has asked to see records of a $600,000 bank transfer from the victim’s account, new court documents reveal.
Nancy Pfister was found dead in a closet in her home in late February. She had been beaten to death shortly after she’d returned from an overseas trip amid worries about two houseguests, retired physician William Styler and his wife, Nancy.
The Stylers have been arrested in the murder, along with Katherine Carpenter, who was an employee at Alpine Bank. They’re charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder. The $600,000 was transferred from Pfister’s account at that bank in November.
The documents also reveal the discovery of blood and cleaning supplies in the Stylers’ car, a bag containing the suspected murder weapon and some of the Stylers’ property. It’s unclear what weapon was used to kill Pfister.
Three suspects are jailed, awaiting their next court date.
