Homicide Investigation

Aurora, Colo. -- On November 22, 2010 at about 11:58 AM, officers were called to the 12200 block of E Kepner Place by the management of the apartment complex on the report of a man down in an apartment.

Responding officers located an adult male who was deceased. He is identified as 22 year old Terence Scott George. There is no photo available.
