Police Investigation update


7/8/19 - On July 5, 2019, just after 8:00 p.m. the Boulder County Sherriff’s Office informed the Frederick Police Department that Kevin Butler was the driver and sole occupant in a single-vehicle traffic crash near Mud Lake in the 39,000 block of the Peak to Peak Highway (Highway 72) and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Boulder County Coroner's Office is responsible for determining the cause and manner of Kevin Butler's death. Upon investigation, the Boulder County Coroner’s Office determined that Kevin Butler had suffered from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound and his injuries were not the result of what was originally reported as a traffic accident. Investigators from the Boulder County Sheriff's Office, the Boulder County Coroner’s Office and Weld Coroner's Office all are continuing to assist the Frederick Police Department in the investigation as needed.

This case will remain under investigation by the Frederick Police Department. No additional suspects are being sought and there is no perceived threat to the community.

Contact the Frederick Police Department at (720)382-5700, or dispatch at (720)652-4222 with any other information on this case.

7/6/19 - On July 5, 2019, at approximately 3:00 p.m., officers responded to the 7100 Block of Shavano Circle, in Frederick, on a welfare check. Upon arrival, officers entered the home and found a female who was not responsive and later pronounced dead at the scene from what appeared to be a gunshot wound.

During the preliminary stages of the investigation, officers determined the name of the deceased to be Emily Butler (age 36), a resident of the home. Her husband, Kevin Butler (age 50), was not located at the scene and is considered to be a person of interest in this homicide. However, police do have reason to believe he is not a threat to the public at this time.
