Mile High Murder, No. 31: A first look at Charles Garlick, held in the killing of James Foos

Early on August 5, Denver police found a body in an alley near 14th and Ogden that was subsequently identified as James Foos, 48. In short order, Charles Garlick, 26, was taken into custody on investigation of first-degree murder. A mug shot wasn't immediately made public -- but now, the DPD has released the shot seen here. Don't let small children see it, or they'll likely wake up crying in the dead of night.
