Four arrested in deaths of two girls in Norwood
Four people were arrested and authorities were seeking a fifth Friday on suspicion of the double homicide of two girls found dead on a farm outside of Norwood.
The girls, who were between the ages of 5 and 10 years old, are believed to have been deceased at least two weeks, according to the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities are seeking Nashika Bramble as a suspect in the case. She was last seen hitchhiking in the area on Wednesday morning.
More information on the case will be released today, the Sheriff’s Office said.
“In my 37 years as sheriff, I have never seen anything as cruel and heartless as this,” San Miguel County Sheriff Bill Masters said in a press statement on Friday night.
Deputies found the girls Friday following up on a tip, said spokeswoman Susan Lilly of the San Miguel County Sheriff’s Office.
Lilly said at least two of the suspects are Haitians and it is believed they have not lived in Norwood for more than two months. Norwood is about 35 miles west of Telluride.
The four suspects’ names and photos were not available Friday.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation is assisting the Sheriff’s Office with the investigation.
Suspect charges include second-degree murder, criminally negligent homicide and felony child abuse causing death, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Anyone with information on Bramble’s whereabouts should call San Miguel County’s dispatch line at 728-1911.
