Our Mile High Murder project, started on May 17, reaches the unfortunate half-century mark in fewer than six months as result of word about Denver's latest homicide. Early this morning, the Denver Police Department responded to a home at 1873 S. Clermont Street, an area captured in the graphic above (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map"), to find a woman dead of apparent stab wounds, as well as a still-breathing man suffering from "apparent sharp force injuries to his neck and arms." Cops aren't looking for any additional suspects according to a DPD release. Read it below.
On November 6, 2009 at approximately 1:00 a.m., members of the Denver Police Department responded to 1873 S. Clermont Street on a report of a DOA and a stabbing. Upon arrival, the officers located a female victim deceased inside the home at this location. Officers also located a male suffering from apparent sharp force injuries to his neck and arms. Paramedics transported the male to the Denver Health Medical Center where he remains in stable condition. Doctors pronounced the female dead at the scene.
Police continue to investigate this incident as a homicide. Identities of the female victim and male subject are pending confirmation and notification of next of kin by the Denver Coroner's Office. Cause of death will be pending an autopsy. Police are not looking for any suspects in this case.
