NORWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – The San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office says the fifth suspect in the murders of two little girls in Norwood has turned herself in.
Nashika Bramble and four other suspects are now in custody.
The four other suspects arrested — 23-year-old Frederick A. Blair of Norwood, 37-year-old Madani Ceus from Haiti, 50-year-old Nathan Yah from Haiti, and 53-year-old Ika Eden from Jamaica — have been initially charged with Felony Child Abuse Causing Death.
“In my 37 years as sheriff I have never seen anything as cruel and heartless as this,” San Miguel County Sheriff Bill Masters said of the incident.
Authorities discovered the bodies of the girls about noon Friday. It’s believed they had been dead for approximately two weeks, according to San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Susan Lilly. They were between five and 10 years of age.
The San Miguel Sheriff’s Office is leading the homicide investigation with assistance from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
