Police have identified the two people found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in a Granby home.
Granby Police Chief William Housley identified the man as 53-year-old Michael Rexford McCormick, a man suspected - along with his father - in the disappearances of as many as 17 homeless men in Colorado during the 1980s.
The woman was 38-year-old Michelle Lee Thompson-Larimer, of Parker, Colo. Police believed McCormick kidnapped Thompson-Larimer Wednesday. The two had a business relationship. Officers surrounded the house and attempted to contact the victim and the suspect. Police heard a gunshot Thursday morning, entered the house and found the two dead. McCormick was convicted of second-degree murder in 1987, but was released five years ago after the conviction was overturned.
