33-year-old mother of 3 murdered by boyfriend who then killed himself in a murder-suicide.
The deceased, Clarissa Ford, and her unnamed boyfriend were found dead inside a home last Friday, Denver police confirmed.
The victim’s father, Ralph Ford, told KDVR that his daughter was shot dead by her boyfriend before he killed himself.
Mr Ford said Clarissa’s seven-year-old daughter was in the home at the time of the shooting.
It’s hard to believe that that memory is going to stick with her for a long time.”
It’s unbelievable pain. It’s an unbelievable situation to be in.
The Denver Police Department tweeted on Saturday that the “incident appears to be a domestic violence-related murder/suicide.”
The victim, an adult female, and the suspect, an adult male, were found deceased inside the residence.
Investigators are not looking for any additional suspect.
Clarissa had four daughters, including a five-month-old, three-year-old and two other girls aged seven and 14.
