BURLINGTON, Colo. -- Two men are in custody after the death of a woman on Friday, the Burlington Police Department said.

Police arrested Dylan Eason, 19, and Isaiah Churchwell, 24, in connection with the death of Cynthia Campbell Eason that occurred in Eason's home in the 1300 block of Jasmine Street.

Police said they believe the suspects entered Eason’s home and killed her, then left with items stolen from the residence. A tip led to the search and capture of the men a few hours after the investigation began about 1:10 p.m. Friday.

Investigators do not believe it was a random incident as Dylan Eason was Cynthia Campbell Eason's stepson.

Viewers said Eason was a well-loved veterinarian in Burlington and Kansas City, Mo., described on social media by those who knew her as a valuable asset to the community.

Police have not released any information about a possible motive for the death. Jon Eason, Cynthia Eason's husband and Dylan Eason's father, wrote on Facebook about the loss of his wife and his frustration with the judicial system.

The suspects are being held without bond at the Kit Carson County Jail and according to court records, they will be advised of charges on Monday.

The suspects are each charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary, aggravated robbery and theft.
