3 Cincinnati Men Held In Killing Of Colorado Man

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Three men from Cincinnati, Ohio are suspected in the killing of a man whose body was found in eastern Colorado on Saturday.

Fort Collins, Colorado police said Wednesday that the men, all 20, were already being held in Illinois on unrelated traffic charges when they were arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Devon Smeltz of Fort Collins.

Smeltz was reported missing by his family on Aug. 26. The following day the suspects were stopped by the Illinois State Police in Vermillion County near the Indiana border.

Smeltz’s body was found in a row of trees in a rural area about 70 miles east of Fort Collins.

Fort Collins police say they won’t release any other details about the killing because it’s still under investigation.
