Sheriff: Suspect in 3 slayings is likely on run
PUEBLO — Authorities say a former long-distance trucker wanted in the deaths of three people in Colorado is probably on the run rather than hiding out somewhere.
Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor said Thursday a nationwide arrest warrant has been issued for 59-year-old Harry Carl Mapps on charges of murder and arson.
Mapps is accused in the Nov. 27 deaths of a southern Colorado couple and their adult daughter.
Taylor says the couple’s home was set fire in an attempt to cover up the slayings.
The warrant has been sealed and no details were released.
A federal warrant has also been issued for Mapps’ arrest.
Authorities identified the victims as as 51-year-old Reginald Tuttle, his wife, 55-year-old Kim Tuttle, and their daughter, 33-year-old Dawn Roderick. Investigators say all were shot.
