Two Walsenburg residents found dead in their home

WALSENBURG– Police performed a welfare check on a house on Pinon street Monday evening Nov. 8, and found the occupants dead in separate rooms.  Apparantly, they had been dead three to four weeks.  It initially appears that there was no foul play involved, but the Walsenburg PD has called in the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

    The only clue as to what might have happened was that the residence had been ‘red-tagged’ the prior month, and their utilities had been shut off.

    Police Chief James Chamberlain is not commenting further on the matter until more information comes to light.
