Update: Kacey Heberlein Killed by High School Sweetheart Chris Bankert in Murder-Suicide

Update: Although the circumstances that led to police discovering the bodies of Kacey Heberlein and Chris Bankert in a Castle Rock home (see our previous coverage below) suggested a murder-suicide scenario, authorities in the community declined to provide details until an autopsy was completed. Now, however, the Douglas County coroner's office has confirmed that both Heberlein and Bankert died from gunshot wounds; he shot her before taking his own life.
