This afternoon, Jefferson County investigators executed an arrest warrant for Jordan Lemarinel (04/17/90) on suspicion of first degree murder in the death of Samuel Addison Stewart (07/02/90). A warrant has also been issued for the arrest of Kenneth Crise (10/15/61) on the same charge. Stewart was found deceased in his vehicle in the 11300 block of W. Maplewood Drive on May 1. He had sustained multiple gunshot wounds.
The ensuing investigation led to Lemarinel and Crise as suspects. Investigators do not believe this was a random killing. Lemarinel was initially arrested by Jefferson County deputies this morning on unrelated charges out of Lakewood for drugs and illegal weapons possession. Crise remains at large.
Anyone who has information regarding this case or the whereabouts of Crise is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
