Woman and child killed in Adams County were grandmother and grandson, neighbors say

Neighbors: Not first time police called here

DENVER - Neighbors have identified the victims of an apparent homicide at 2812 W. 66th Place as Raelynn Gonzales and her young grandson, Fabian.

The bodies were found Friday night, apparently by a family member.

"We have a party screaming at the RP (reporting party) claiming their son is dead," the radio dispatcher told responding officers.

"I had just spoken to her the day before," said Michael Beck, a neighbor who lives down the street. "She came by with two dogs. She said she walked them every day, and she had her grandson with her in a stroller."

Investigators are releasing very little information about the case.

Sgt. Paul Gregory, spokesman for the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, told 7NEWS the case is being investigated as a homicide.

When asked if it was a double-homicide or murder-suicide, Gregory said, "I don't want to go there."

Gregory said the Adams County Coroner's Office was conducting autopsies on Monday, and the coroner would be releasing the victims' names.

If it is a double-homicide, authorities aren't talking about a person of interest.

One next door neighbor said this wasn't the first time police had been called to the apartment.

Several neighbors say they are anxious for police to solve the case.

"It's creepy; I hope they catch that person," Beck said.
