Mile High Murder, No. 39: Filadelfo Mazariego and Alba Rodriguez-Ruiz dead in likely murder-suicide on 4700 block of Peoria Street


View Larger Map Let's hope murder-suicides don't come in threes. Just yesterday, we told you about a likely murder-suicide in Broomfield involving Darryl Stricklin, 45, and Jodi Samuels, 36. Shortly thereafter, the Denver Coroner's Office identified Filadelfo Mazariego and Alba Rodriguez-Ruiz as a couple found dead on the 4700 block of Peoria Street, an area captured in the graphic above (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"). Thus far, police are saying little other than that the pair were in "a domestic relationship."

Apparently not a very good one.
