Denver police arrest Andrew Mutch on suspicion of I-70 homicides

Denver police arrested a man Wednesday night in connection with two homicides reported on successive days this week near Interstate 70.

Andrew Mutch, 34, was arrested Wednesday and is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder, Denver police said in a news release posted to Twitter on Thursday. Hours before Mutch’s arrest, police had responded to the death of an adult male found outside near Washington Street and Interstate 70. Another man had been found dead under a highway ramp in same area Tuesday morning, and both deaths were subsequently determined to be homicides.

The deaths are now believed to be connected, police said Thursday, and investigators “quickly identified” Mutch as a suspect in the killings.

Mutch’s arrest affidavit has been sealed. Police spokesman Sean Towle declined to provide further details about Mutch, the victims or the investigation early Thursday afternoon. The Office of the Medical Examiner said that information about the victims’ causes of death is not yet available but will be released after their families are notified.
