The three men who killed a 17-year-old girl were shot and left in a Denver alley
Three people have been arrested in connection with the slaying of a 17-year-old girl last spring, Denver police said Thursday.
On March 26, Jasmine Rivas-Hernandez was found shot to death in an alley in the city’s Montclair neighborhood. Her legs were crossed at the ankles and tied with a white earmuff, according to a police statement to The Post.
Nearly 10 months later, police arrested 34-year-old Robert Adam Solano, 26-year-old Joseph Thomas Chavez and 21-year-old Shiloh Fresquez in connection with the teenager’s death.
Police nailed the group after surveillance cameras found Chavez’s DNA on the stolen truck driving down the alley before Jasmine was found, the documents state. Jasmin’s blood was also found in the car, police said.
The couple, Fresquez and Solano, were together at the time of the murders, and cell phone records showed they were a few blocks away.
According to the charges, Solano may have pulled the trigger. He was the only one of the trio charged with first-degree murder.
Both Solano and Chavez were in custody on unrelated charges when Denver police issued the arrest warrants on Tuesday. Chavez was slapped with charges of first-degree murder and desecration of a corpse.
Fresquez was arrested earlier this month in connection with the killing, police said. He has been charged by the Denver District Attorney’s Office with first-degree murder and conspiracy to influence a public official.
The police have not yet revealed the motive of the murder.
“We want answers. We want to know why this happened,” said Diana Hernandez, Jasmine’s cousin. This was reported by 9 News shortly after the murder.
“I don’t think there’s anything he could do or do to anybody to have someone kill him like that. It just doesn’t make sense.”
