DENVER – Denver police don’t have any suspects as they investigate the slayings of five people whose bodies were found at a neighborhood bar after a fire broke out early Wednesday.
Investigators believe they were killed before the fire and the blaze was set to cover up the slayings.
The fire at Fero’s Bar & Grill was spotted just before 2 a.m., closing time for bars, by a police officer on patrol. Firefighters found four women and one man dead inside.
Police chief Robert White said there’s nothing to indicate a murder-suicide, meaning whoever is responsible still is at large. He said he was hopeful the killings were an “isolated act” but couldn’t say for sure yet.
