Details Released in Colorado Triple Slaying

Colorado Sheriff’s Department

CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) — Newly released court documents are revealing details about the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl and the killings of her mother, brother and sister in southern Colorado.

A sex offender from Indiana, Jaacob Vanwinkle, is charged in the March 9 sexual assault and triple slaying in Canon City.

Citing an arrest affidavit released Friday, the Canon City Daily Record reports (http://bit.ly/1q6NJJG) that the 16-year-old girl says she was able to flee her home after Vanwinkle assaulted her for the second time because he passed out after taking some of her mother’s pills.

She told authorities her family members were tied up in the garage, but officers found their bodies in a bedroom in the house. Investigators say Vanwinkle, who was living with the family, was found in another bedroom and arrested.
