FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)– The body of a missing Fort Collins woman who police believe disappeared under suspicious circumstances has been found.
Kimberlee Graves was last seen at her home on Dec. 4. Her remains were found in Lory State Park and the Larimer County Coroner’s Office determined that her death is a homicide.
“At this point we need the community’s help figuring out what happened and finding justice for Kimberlee,” said Kate Kimble, Public Relations Manager with the Fort Collins Police Department.
Police said a friend called police to request a welfare check on Dec. 8 because she couldn’t reach Graves, 41.
Officers tried to contact Graves at her home on Akin Avenue but nobody answered the door and her car was gone.
“Detectives currently have no indication that there’s any threat to public safety. This is a difficult time for Kimberlee’s friends and family and the community and our thoughts are with anyone who’s been impacted by this tragic loss of life,” said Kimble.
Then on Dec. 10, a worried friend entered Graves’ home and found that it had been ransacked.
Graves’ vehicle, a red Toyota Rav4, was found days after her disappearance at a parking garage which was used by a now-closed grocery store at College Avenue and Mulberry Street.
Fort Collins Police Services told CBS4 Graves’ abandoned vehicle was likely driven by someone else following her disappearance.
