A case of murder crossing state lines – from Colorado to Powell, Wyoming.
22-year-old Jonathan Akin from the Denver area reportedly walked into the Powell Police station on Tuesday and informed officers that he had killed his girlfriend in Colorado, and that her body was in the trunk of his vehicle.
According to an article in the Powell Tribune, police officers confirmed the presence of the body of the unidentified woman in the vehicle that Akin drove to the law enforcement center, and police in Colorado say that they found evidence of a violent crime at the couple’s apartment in Thornton.
Powell Police Chief Roy Eckert says that Akin had traveled to the home of a family member in Deaver after committing the crime. Thornton Police have opened a first-degree murder investigation, and as of yesterday afternoon, Akin is still being detained at the Park County Detention Center in Cody.
Thornton police did not identify the victim, according to the article, as she has not been officially identified by the coroner’s office in Adams County, Colorado.
