Donald Shores busted in ultra-disturbing cold case sex assault

We've documented plenty of shocking acts in our Colorado Crimes archive over the years, including a brutal cold-case sex assault arrest from earlier this year that could earn Eddie Simon a life sentence.

But few of the allegations we've shared over the years have been as disturbing as the ones documented in the arrest warrant on view below for Donald Ray Shores, who's accused of raping two at-risk women nearly twenty years apart. Warning: The details may disturb some readers.
