21-year-old woman accused of killing Colorado Springs man surrenders to Iowa police

Grant Frazier's body found in parked car in Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Police say a 21-year-old woman, who is a suspect in the killing of a Colorado Springs man, surrendered to police in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, early Wednesday.

Colorado Springs police say Bionca Rogers turned herself in a day after police discovered the body of 61-year-old Grant Frazier in a car parked outside an apartment complex in Newton, Iowa. Police said have they obtained a first-degree murder warrant for Rogers.

Police said, "it has not yet been determined if Ms. Rogers acted alone," adding that the investigation is ongoing.

On Monday, Colorado Springs police said Frazier had disappeared on Feb. 16, and that he was last seen with Rogers. At the time, police said the circumstances of Frazier's disappearance were "suspicious" and called Rogers a person of interest in the investigation.

Then Frazier's body was found 700 miles away in Iowa.

Public records show Rogers recently lived in Iowa City and she has also lived in Cedar Rapids, where she turned herself into police early Wednesday morning. She is being held without bond. The El Paso County District Attorney’s Office will be seeking her extradition back to Colorado, police said.

The Iowa Office of the State Medical Examiner told 7NEWS the results of an autopsy on Frazier will be released Thursday.

Police asked anyone who has information about this case to contact the Colorado Springs Police Department at 719-444-7000; Tipsters can also call Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers, Inc. at 719-634-7867; you do not have to give your name and could earn a cash reward.
