This weekend, officers with the Denver Police Department were summoned to a residence on South Bryant Street that contained a gruesome secret.
A woman at a home there was dead. And the cause appears to have been wholly unnatural.
At this writing, the DPD isn't being profligate with information. According to the department, a call came in at 7:36 a.m., and when police arrived at the 300 block of South Bryant, they found an unresponsive woman with wounds to her body. She was pronounced dead at the scene, and homicide detectives soon got to work.
Thus far, neither the woman nor any potential suspects have been named. However, KWGN quotes neighbors as saying the victim worked at a hospital and was the mother of two daughters, ages ten and twelve.
