The ABCs of Metro Denver's Most Wanted List: Meet 14 Fugitives at Large


Update:
 After sharing a post featuring seventeen people included on the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers most wanted list, a readers tip alerted us to the fact that the roster is fearfully out of date.

Turns out that (update) eight of the seventeen we originally included were in custody and could no longer be considered fugitives.

We've updated this post by removing items pertaining to those currently behind bars and substituting photos and information about other individuals who actually appear to be at large as of this writing. At least, we didn't find any of their names or info using the Colorado Department of Corrections offender search function accessible here.

Continue for our previous introduction and the updated gallery.


Original post, 7:13 a.m.: Metro Denver Crime Stoppers' Most Wanted list currently features sixty individuals — most of them men, with a few women.

But just because they're on this roster doesn't mean they're either famous or infamous.

Indeed, the majority of suspects will be unknown to the public as a whole — and not all of the crimes of which they're accused are created equal. They range from burglary to homicide.

Below, we've chosen one person from each letter of the alphabet currently represented — (update) fourteen in all — and arranged them in alphabetical order. Included is a photo and information about the allegations against each person.

If you have information about any of the suspects' whereabouts, you're encouraged to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867 (STOP). And to see the complete list, click here.
