Coroner ID’s Body, Rules Death A Homicide

The body that was discovered during an investigation in Eagle County earlier this week has been positively identified as 74-year-old Catherine Kelley of Edwards. Sheriff’s deputies responded to a reported home invasion Wednesday night in the Pilgrim Downs area south of Edwards, where they discovered Kelley’s body. Two suspects in the incident, 23-year-old Jacob White and 24-year-old Page Ackerson, both of Denver, were taken into custody. The incident is now considered a homicide case, as the coroner determined Kelley’s death was due to strangulation. Formal charges are expected to be filed against White and Ackerson next month. Both are expected  to be charged with 1st Degree Murder and felony Burglary. Pictured above from left to right, Jacob White and Page Ackerson.
