Suspicious death investigation brings Jeffco Bomb Squad, CSI out to look into situation

Posted

Arvada Police responded to a suicide the morning of Sept. 28 on the 5700 block of Lamar Street. The preliminary investigation into the home raised concern of “suspicious activity” and the Jeffco Bomb Squad and APD Crime Scene Investigation Unit responded, while Lamar was closed between Ralston and Grandview.

Upon arriving to the scene, officers found a dead person. There were “things in the home that led (APD) to believe the home itself was unsafe,” a spokesperson for the department said. Jeffco Bomb Squad cleared the property and found no hazard.

The department and the Jeffco Coroner’s office did not identify the person, nor provide cause of death. A witness reported seeing bullet holes in a car on the premises. Lamar street reopened to traffic at around noon on Sept. 28. The investigation is ongoing.
