Grand County officers seek man, woman suspected of theft at murder-suicide scene
Grand County, CO Colorado
The Grand County Sheriff’s Office suspects Jerod Morris Reeves, 29, and Kimberly Mae McCaffery, 35, of stealing items from the father-son murder-suicide last week southwest of Kremmling.
Both suspects are from Craig, and the last known vehicle they were driving was found in Cheyenne, Wyo.
The phone number of the Grand County Sheriff’s Office is 970-725-3343.
In a prepared statement, Sheriff Rod Johnson said his office is following numerous leads with the help of several Colorado, Wyoming, and federal agencies. Through use of credit cards, photographs, and videos, law enforcement officers said they were able to identify Reeves and McCaffery.
Warrants for the arrest of the two have been issued and they were still at large Friday morning. They are each suspected of committing three unspecified felonies, according to Johnson’s statement.
After the apparent murder-suicide involving William Ahrold, 62, and his son Jackson, 9, both of Denver, it was announced to the media on Wednesday there was an attempted robbery of William Ahrold’s Denver home. Law enforcement officials stated there is no apparent connection between the attempted robbery and this case.
In a phone interview Wednesday, Grand County Coroner Brenda Bock said that autopsies of the Ahrolds were finished and the bodies were to be returned to the family.
Bock, who assisted with the autopsies on Tuesday, stated that William Ahrold’s cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head. Jackson died from two gunshot wounds to his back, she said.
A Bureau of Land Management law enforcement officer found the bodies in a van on County Road 102 on Saturday, Dec. 17. They had been there for at least several days, according to authorities.
CR 102 is about 12 miles southwest of where the Trough Road leaves US Highway 9 south of Kremmling. The road dead ends about a half mile from the Trough Road.
Authorities say Reeves and McCaffery are suspected of breaking into the van after the deaths and stealing the gun used in the murder-suicide and credit cards, among other items.
The exact date of the deaths is not known.
