BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Investigators say they have determined the deaths of three people in Coal Creek Canyon is the result of homicide.
Deputies arrived shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday at a home in the 800 block of Divide View Drive in Boulder County to find the bodies of two males and a female.
“Investigators have preliminarily identified the three victims in the Coal Creek Canyon triple homicide investigation, and were able to eliminate murder-suicide as a factor,” Cmdr. Mike Wagner with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
A worried man had called the sheriff’s office around 7:30 a.m. asking for a welfare check on his friends who he had not heard from in several days.
Authorities say there is not a threat to the public.
The identities of the victims won’t be released until the coroner’s office investigates and next of kin are notified.
