William Harvey, Mile High Murder No. 70: Former CU football player identified as victim in Cottonwood Trail Apartments shooting

As we told you last week, a man was found dead in an SUV at the Cottonwood Trail Apartments in Aurora -- and police were investigating it as a homicide.

Since then, the victim has been identified as William Harvey, reportedly a member of the CU Buffs football team in 1986 and 1987. He subsequently racked up a lengthy arrest record.

According to the Aurora Police Department, he lived a few blocks away from the apartment complex where he breathed his last.
