BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said detectives were investigating the deaths of three people in a home in Coal Creek Canyon on Saturday evening and treating the incident as a triple homicide.
Just before 6 p.m. investigators entered the home in the 800 block of Divide View Drive after a hazardous materials team was able to confirm the environmental conditions were safe.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., the sheriff’s office received a call for a welfare check on several individuals who lived in the house.
“The man requesting the welfare check was concerned about his friends, as he hadn’t heard from them in several days,” a statement from the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies and rescue personnel found the bodies of three victims — two males and one female — during a “hasty search of the residence.” Because of the suspicious circumstances, they secured the home and called for sheriff’s investigators.
According to the sheriff’s office, there were “indications of trauma” on all bodies found.
