During the late afternoon of July 13, 1981, a resident in the 4000 block of Easley road in Golden reported what appeared to be a dead body on his property. The sheriff's office responded and found the body of Elvin Victor Fuster, a 19-year-old male who had been shot to death at that location.
The ensuing investigation revealed that Fuster had moved to Denver from Seattle about one month before, and he was living in the 1100 block of Downing street in Denver. He had been working at Josephine's Restaurant in Larimer Square as a dishwasher before his death. According to friends, Fuster had been assaulted in Denver after a dance at La Fiesta in the days before his murder. They indicated drugs or a domestic-type argument motivated the assault.
Fuster was found wearing blue jeans and a white ruffle shirt. Neighbors in the 4000 block of Easley reported seeing a suspicious vehicle, described as a dark-colored Chevrolet Camaro in the early morning hours of July 13, 1981.
