UPDATE: Homicide investigation in Coal Creek Canyon

Investigators located the bodies of two men and one woman inside the residence; a triple homicide investigation underway

Golden, Colo. - Just before 6:00 p.m., investigators, armed with a search warrant, entered the residence in the 800 block of Divide View Drive, after a hazmat team was able to confirm the environmental conditions were safe within. Investigators located the bodies of three individuals inside: two men and one woman. The initial scene investigation suggests each victim suffered a traumatic injury.

Sheriff's investigators are investigating the deaths as a triple homicide, and are continuing to work in conjunction with the Boulder County Coroner's Office and the Boulder District Attorney's Office. The Coroner's Office is responsible to determine the identity of each decedent, notify their next-of-kin, and to determine the cause and manner of their death.

Additional updates will be posted on Twitter (@BldrCoSheriff) as they become available, with aggregated updates being sent periodically through media releases. No additional information is expected to become available tonight, as the crime scene investigation and processing will be a protracted event.

The original media release with additional information is available here.

The case number associated with this investigation is 17-2172.
