Larimer County Sheriff’s Office arrested two suspects Sunday
morning in connection with a double-homicide that occurred late
Friday night at a home north of Fort Collins.
Edward J. Platzer and Mark J. Walker were arrested in connection
with the murder of Robert Hill, 54, and John Miller, 46.
“They’ve got a lot more investigating to do,” said Deputy Craig
Kern of the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. “We think they knew
each other but we’re not sure.”
The victims were found in Hill’s home at 4108 Cherry Hills Dr.,
where Hill ran a small auto-body shop.
“Hill lived there, it was his place and his business,” Kern
said. “I think Miller was just a friend who stopped by.”
Autopsies concluded Sunday morning that the cause of death for
both was gunshot wounds. The sheriff’s office is gathering new
information and releasing it as it becomes available.
“We’re hoping to know a whole lot more by Monday afternoon,”
Kern said. “We may possibly release pictures on Wednesday.”
