...and this one: Comments of condolence have started to collect on the page. One reads: "I remember when we were in speech and debate together. We would make jokes about strange things all the time. I'm sorry that this happened to you... I'm at a loss for words. You were a beautiful person. RIP." Another states simply, "Rest in peace Amanda you were a good friend and a great person."

Nancy Worrell's Facebook page lists her as a baker at Golden Corral in Centennial. She's also said to have been studying bakery and pastry arts at the Art Institute of Colorado.

Here's a photo of Worrell....

...and another one: The relationship between King and the two women is described by the Denver Police Department in the following tweet:

As for how King was taken into custody, CBS4 reports that family members dialed 911 and alerted dispatchers to keep an eye out for him, since he might be suicidal. Shortly thereafter, the dark-colored SUV he'd been driving was spotted. After he was pulled over, officers are said to have "connected the dots" and realized he had been involved in the murders.

Our condolences to the friends, family and loved ones of Amanda Anders and Nancy Worrell. Here's a look at King's booking photo.
