Person Of Interest In 2 Denver Deaths Held In SoCal

PALM SPRINGS (AP) — A man considered a person of interest in the killing of his two Denver roommates has been arrested in Southern California.

A police statement says 55-year-old Daryl L. Rasmussen was arrested Monday night after a patron at a Palm Springs bar recognized him from TV reports.

Rasmussen, a cross-dresser known as “Ms. Puppy,” was held without bail on arrest warrants for a parole violation out of Austin, Texas, and a probation violation for counterfeiting out of Savannah, Ga.

It’s not immediately clear whether he’s obtained an attorney.

Denver police want to question him about the beating deaths of 63-year-old Ronald Ford and Ford’s life partner, 55-year-old Ramiro Sanchez. Ford’s body was found in his basement on Feb. 11 and Sanchez’s body was found under some bags there a week later.

    They didn’t notice the second body the first time they were looking at the crime scene?
