Deputies Say Body Found On Lawn Is Homicide

Investigators Trying To Figure Out How Man Died

Sheriff's deputies said Sunday they are investigating the discovery of a man's body on a Centennial lawn as a homicide.

The body was found face down on the lawn of a home in the 8700 block of East Philips Place around 5:30 a.m. Friday.

Police identified the victim's body as Andrew Gelston Graham, 23. He had no visible trauma injuries, said Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

Investigators plan on holding a news conference at 3 p.m. on Sunday to discuss the case.

Graham did not live in that home, but how he got to that Willow Creek subdivision, and exactly how he died are under investigation.

"This homicide is currently being investigated by a significant number of sheriff's office deputies and personnel," Robinson said.

Investigators said he may have been killed somewhere else and his body dumped in front of the home. Robinson said Graham is a local resident but will not release his home address.

Anyone with any information related to the homicide is asked to contact the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office at 303-795-4711. A cash reward may be made available for viable information, the sheriff's office said.
