Investigators are concerned there could be more victims and are encouraging them to come forward and file a report.

“Because Hensley is an employee of the Denver Women’s Correctional Facility, and based on information discovered through the investigation, the Denver Police Department and Colorado Department of Corrections are concerned that there may be additional victims who have not come forward,” investigators said in a statement released Friday.
