Kate Kimble, Public Relations Manager
On January 9, 2018, a park ranger discovered the body of a deceased female in Lory State Park. The Larimer County Coroner’s Office has identified the woman as Kimberlee Graves and determined that her death was a homicide.
Police have been investigating Graves’ disappearance since early December. The 41-year-old Fort Collins resident was last seen at her home on the night of December 4, 2017. On December 8, her friend called police to request a welfare check when she couldn't reach Graves. Officers tried to contact Graves at her home on Akin Avenue, but nobody answered the door and her car was gone. On December 10, the concerned friend entered Graves' home and called police to report that the residence had been ransacked. Officers responded to investigate further. On December 13, Graves’ vehicle was found unattended in a parking garage in Fort Collins. Since that time, police have continued investigating and following up on tips. Detectives currently do not have reason to believe there is a risk to public safety.
