Homicide warrants expected today
Charges against Harry Mapps to be upgraded
Law enforcement officials are expected to announce today that they’ve obtained first-degree murder warrants for Harry Mapps, the prime suspect in a triple homicide in Rye.
Mapps, 59, had been wanted for identity theft but investigators told The Chieftain they’ve obtained enough evidence to upgrade the warrants to homicide.
A press conference is scheduled at 11 a.m. today at the Pueblo district attorney’s office. Sheriff Kirk Taylor, District Attorney Jeff Chostner and U.S. Marshal John Kammerzell will give updates on the case and efforts to find Mapps.
Mapps is suspected of shooting Reginald and Kim Tuttle and their daughter, 33-year-old Dawn Roderick, in their Rye home on Nov. 27.
The house was then set on fire.
A nationwide dragnet has been cast to find Mapps, who used to work for the Tuttles’ trucking company.
