Aurora Police confirmed they received a call about a family disturbance at 2624 South Lima St. around 10:05 p.m. Wednesday night. When officers arrived on scene, they found the victim in what they called “grave condition.” Her injuries appeared to be stab wounds, sources said.
She was pronounced dead inside the house a short time later.
Officers then turned their attention to a search for suspect Guzman, who had left the scene before officers arrived. She was believed to be armed and dangerous.
Guzman was described by police as approximately 5-foot-6, weight 130 pounds. She has black hair and brown eyes, and police believe she was wearing nothing but shorts and a sports bra when she fled.
Residents in the area told FOX31 Denver that they believe the victim is Guzman’s mother, who lived in the home along with Guzman and Guzman’s step father.
The house was the site of frequent, violent arguments, and police were seen at the home a few hours before the killing, neighbors said.
‘I was worried about my kids going to school,’ neighbor Ronda Leonard said before Guzman was captured. “(It’s) horrible. I just lost my mother in May in a horrible accident and I would give anything for five minutes with her.”
