Jeffco Sheriff’s Office Conducting Homicide Investigation

PressRelease-Badge

At 1:45 p.m. today, April 14, Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 10200 block of W. Geddes Circle on the report of a homicide; the 911 caller stated there had been a murder. When deputies arrived, they encountered the caller – an adult male resident – on the front lawn. Upon entering the home, deputies found a deceased adult female victim. The victim had sustained obvious traumatic injury. Deputies took the adult male into custody for questioning. 

Earlier today, at 5:10 a.m., deputies responded to the same address for a welfare check. The 911 caller, believed to be the same adult male, referenced a partial address and then hung up without stating the nature of the emergency. Upon callback, dispatch initiated a welfare check. Deputies were not able to make contact with anyone in the home, but did speak on the phone with the homeowner, the mother of the adult male. At that time, the mother explained her son was experiencing a mental health issue and advised the family would be able to handle the issue and would notify the Sheriff’s Office if necessary. Deputies cleared the scene without entering the home.

Investigators will determine the male’s relationship with the victim; the mother is not the victim. This investigation is in its early stages and more information will be released when available.
