****Homicide Case Update****

On July 20, 2021 Fort Collins Police Detectives were contacted by a Detective from the Brighton Police Department who was familiar with the suspect in this case. Shortly after receiving that information, an off-duty Boulder County Sheriff’s Deputy noticed the stolen Honda CR-V that the suspect was in, parked at a business in Berthoud and contacted police. Members of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Department and Fort Collins Police Department were able to stop the vehicle in Berthoud and take the suspect into custody.

The suspect was identified as Victor Jeremiah Corwin (dob: 07/27/1992) and was the sole occupant inside the stolen vehicle. Detectives were able to determine that the stolen vehicle that the suspect was in, was stolen from a burglary previously in Lakewood, Colorado. It should also be noted that Corwin, was the same individual as reported by the Brighton Police Detective. Corwin was arrested and later transported to the Larimer County Detention Center. Formal charges will be filed with the Larimer County District Attorney’s Office at a later time.

The identity of the victim will be released at a later time, pending next of kin notifications. The Larimer County Coroner’s Office has ruled the manner of the victim’s death as a homicide, and the cause, a gunshot wound.

“I’m proud of the work of the men and women of the Fort Collins Police, and thankful for the assistance of all the other law enforcement agencies which resulted in the quick capture of this violent suspect,” said Fort Collins Police Chief Jeff Swoboda.

Anyone with information regarding this incident who have not already spoken to police is asked to call Detective Dollie Knab at (970) 416 2195.
