LAKEWOOD, Colo. - Detectives have made an arrest in connection with a homicide discovered Monday afternoon in a Lakewood motel.
The victim is not being identified until the coroner has notified the family, but police spokesman Steve Davis says the body was found around 2:10 p.m. inside a room at the Denver West Inn at 7150 W. Colfax Ave.
Police went there, entered the room and discovered the death. When they returned later with a search warrant, Davis says they found evidence to indicate the death was a homicide.
Cody Kaye Sewick, 21, was identified as a person of interest and taken into custody around 2:20 a.m. Davis says Sewick was arrested on charges of first degree murder after being interviewed.
Sewick is believed to have known the victim and Davis asks anyone with information about the case to call the department at 303-987-7111.
