Murderer was sober, tests show

The blood tests of the man believed responsible for the gunshot killings of two Grand Junction residents last month showed no signs he was under the influence of any drugs or other substances.

A toxicology report on Stefan Alexander Martin-Urban, 21, showed no sign he was under the influence of any legal or illegal substance, the Mesa County Coroner’s Office said.

“Everything is negative,” Deputy Coroner Kim Hollingshead said.

Martin-Urban is suspected in the Oct. 11 shooting deaths of Grand Junction dentist Terry Fine and retired school teacher Flo Gallagher, in front of Fine’s Chestnut Avenue home in north Grand Junction.

Fine’s wife, Linda, was seriously injured in the attack. She was rushed to St. Mary’s Hospital by Mike Gallagher, Flo’s husband.

The Gallaghers and Fines were preparing to leave on a road trip to Las Vegas when they were accosted by Martin-Urban.

Martin-Urban committed suicide less than an hour later, when he was being pursued by law enforcement.
