Casie Bock, Aurora, Colorado woman arrested after body found in crawl space at her condominium after tip of missing male going missing last summer. Neighbors describe her as problem since moving in.
An Aurora, Colorado woman has been charged with murder after investigators discovered a body buried in the crawl space of her condominium following a tip.
Casie Bock, 29, was arrested on Tuesday night and booked into the Aurora Jail for accessory to homicide according to officials. The suspect was described as an issue by neighbors since she moved in last year.
Bock’s arrest comes after Aurora police received a Crime Stoppers tip about a homicide that occurred 6-8 months ago inside a condo at Red Sky Condos located in the 14600 block of E. 2nd Avenue. According to the tip, the victim was a 36-year-old man who had been missing since last summer. He apparently had been buried in a crawl space and covered in concrete. The concealed grave was discovered under the floor.
Aurora police detectives obtained a search warrant and discovered the concealed grave under the floor. Detectives are working with contractors to recover the body. The excavation process is expected to last through the end of the week, CBS News reported.
The identity of the victim has not been released. The cause of death will be determined by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.
‘I would hear pounding and drilling and a grinder’
A second suspect, a male, has been identified in connection with the case. He remains incarcerated in another jurisdiction on a separate incident. Police said that his identity will be revealed once he is arrested in the case.
Neighbors told FOX31 they were shaken.
‘It’s enough to send shivers down your spine, make your skin crawl,’ Paula Kinningham, who lives in the building, told the station.
‘I heard a lot of frantic behavior, to be honest with you. I just thought she was on drugs,’ one neighbor said.
‘She would have loud music on. I would hear pounding and drilling and a grinder, all kinds of stuff,’ another neighbor said.
Police had yet to say how the victim came to be targeted and whether they believe Bock and the second suspect knew the male victim.
Bock remains held without bond pending her first appearance in court.
