DENVER (KDVR) — Two of the five people who died in a suspected overdose in a Commerce City apartment were the parents of a 4-month-old found alive at the scene, friends and family say.
In total, six people were found in the apartment, along with the baby. One of the adults survived, but five died from what investigators believe was cocaine laced with fentanyl.
The victims that have been identified by family and friends are Karina Rodriguez, Sam Marquez and Humberto Arroyo. Rodriguez and Marquez were the baby’s parents. According to the family, the baby is doing fine and is with family.
A cousin of the family also confirmed that the adult who survived is Marquez’s sister, Cora Marquez. Cora is currently in the hospital but doesn’t remember what happened, according to her family.
FOX31 and Channel 2 are still working to confirm the last two victims’ identities. They are both women.
