Denver Police Chief Robert White and Commander Ron Saunier just announced that three arrests had been made in the quintuple murders that took place early yesterday morning at Fero's Bar & Grill on Colorado Boulevard; among the five victims in an incident that began as a robbery and escalated into homicide and arson was Young Suk Fero, who'd owned Fero's for 28 years.
She still worked twelve hours a day at the spot, where a framed certificate of the Best of Denver award that Fero's won for Best Martini and Tofu in 1990 still had a place of honor.
