Adam Zipperer Obituary, Death -The identities of the three people who were slain in what appears to have been a murder-suicide in Fort Collins on December 3 have been confirmed by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office. The incident occurred on December 3. In addition, the office has determined both the reason for their deaths as well as the manner in which they passed away. The coroner’s office has reached the conclusion that while Adam Zipperer, age 36, from Fort Collins died by suicide as a result of a gunshot wound to the head, two children with the same last name from Timnath, one aged 8 and the other aged 6, both died by homicide as a result of gunshot wounds. Adam Zipperer was found dead in his home. Both of the children had the same surname when they became adults.
Kate Kimble, a representative for the Fort Collins Police Services, stated that while the department is able to identify that Zipperer and the children were linked, they are unable to say in what specific ways the connection existed. This was stated by the representative of the Fort Collins Police Services. According to a previous press release that was distributed by the Fort Collins Police Services, a man placed a call to 911 on December 3 at 10:25 a.m. to report that three people were dead inside of a property that was located in the 3500 block of Stratton Drive. This information was included in the release. The guy who was questioned was the source of the information.
The responding law enforcement officers and members of the SWAT team eventually made the decision to enter the building themselves after repeatedly hammering on the door of the apartment and yelling for assistance from within. After entering the house, they made the dreadful discovery that Zipperer, along with his two children, had perished as a result of a tragic event. The detectives have a strong suspicion that Zipperer is the individual who dialed 911 based on the reports that were provided by the police.
