Police identify west Denver murder victim
DENVER — Autopsy results have confirmed a 20-year-old woman died of a single gunshot wound after an incident inside her West Denver home on Friday.
On Saturday, friends and family members displayed flowers and sympathy cards outside of the home of murder victim Natasha N Carrillo.
“She always knew how to put a smile on my face, I’m going to miss her with all my heart,” said Stephanie Montelongo, Carrillo’s cousin.
As of Saturday afternoon, Denver Police had not made any arrests in the case but do believe the attack is isolated to the woman and not the community at large.
“This appears to be an isolated incident, between our victim and our suspect I do not believe there is any risk to the neighbors or residents,” said a Denver Police spokesperson.
Friends describe Carrillo as a stay at home mom who always enjoyed making people laugh.
“I still keep crying….I just can’t stop.” added Montelongo.
