Two people killed in apparent homicide
Authorities were investigating what appeared to be a double homicide near Rangely late Tuesday night, the Rio Blanco Sheriff’s Department said.
Deputies entered a home about a mile west of Rangely and found two people inside, dead of gunshot wounds to the head. Deputies found the bodies, who are believed to be residents of the home, in response to a welfare check after a man who lived in the home failed to show for work.
The home is off County Road 102. The Sheriff’s Department was not releasing any other details about the victims’ identities or possible suspects Tuesday night. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is assisting in the case.
