Boulder sheriff investigating role of illegal marijuana grow in triple homicide: 100 plants found

Boulder County Sheriff’s Office investigators announced on Thursday afternoon that they removed more than 100 marijuana plants from the Coal Creek Canyon home where three people were found dead earlier this month.

Cmdr. Mike Wagner said on Thursday that the grow inside the home was illegal.

Investigators said in a news release that they are interviewing witnesses and “persons of interest” in and out of Colorado and are continuing to determine whether the marijuana grow played a role in the deaths of Wallace White, 54, Kelly Sloat-White, 56, and Emory Fraker, 39.

The bodies were discovered in a home on the 800 block of Divide View Drive on April 15 after sheriff’s deputies responded to conduct a welfare check on a resident who had not been seen in several days.
