Big photos below.
Update: The Denver Police Department has released mug shots of Dexter Lewis, Joseph Hill and Lynell Hill, the three men suspected of killing five people at Fero's Bar & Grill early Wednesday morning and then setting the business on fire.

We're also getting a closer look at the victims -- a group from a wide range of backgrounds who met their tragic ends side by side.

As we've reported, first responders on the scene after the initial call at 1:50 a.m. on October 17 were fire fighters, due to the blaze engulfing the bar. Once inside, however, they discovered the bodies of four women and one man, later identified as owner Young Fero, 63; Kellene Fallon, 45; Tereasa Beesley, 45; Ross Richter, 29; and Daria Pohl, 22. Police say their remains showed signs of "some trauma," although that phrase has yet to be more specifically described. They're thought to have been killed first, after which a fire was set to destroy evidence of the crime.

Yesterday, we shared photos and stories of Fero and Richter; that information is on view below, as part of our previous coverage. Now, however, we've got more details about the other three victims. Fallon is affectionately referred to by friends who spoke to the Denver Post as "Crazy Kelly." She's said to have lived at a nearby hotel and worked odd jobs, as well as being a Fero's regular.

As for Pohl, her many friends, most of whom called her Dasha rather than Daria, say she worked at a Holiday Inn down the street from Fero's -- and they're devastated by her loss. Her Facebook page features a number of portraits. Here's one example....

...and here's a photo from September that appears to show her posing with Richter, an outdoors lover who moved to Colorado from Kansas a couple of years ago:

As for Beesley, her Facebook page notes that she's a divorced native of Sydney, Montana, who called Denver home. In the "About Me" section, she wrote: "I am still a teenager at heart, love to go out and socialize, but do take my home life with my 2 kids very seriously." Here's a photo fo Beesley:

Regarding the suspects, the Post reports that Lewis's dad was a gang member who died violently in 1994. His criminal record includes robbery, menacing and misdemeanor sexual assault. He's said to be engaged to be married, with a fiancee who's pregnant and only weeks from delivering. As for the Hills, who are brothers, Lynell had a couple of misdemeanor assault charges in Arapahoe County in 2010 and 2011. More recently, Lynell is said to have been involved with a talent agency, while Joseph managed a hotel.

Here are their booking photos. Our previous coverage is below.

There is more to this crime then what is been said,It don;t matter what race u are, Take a good look at all the worthless son of a bitches that have done the killings in the School,or the movies or where ever. There white come from wealth family,And they call them smart and intelligent .It;s pretty hard to trust anyone these days including the law ,Take a look at chef of police in arapahoe county  what did that mother fucker get a whole week in jail for selling Myth , Date rapping, Take a look at the congress women for a D.U.I STOP  and gun in her car and the cop call the cab for her . no charges ,So how do u know the guys they are calling suspects r the killers I am not sticking up for them but the law not letting the public  know what the true is. because they don;t no.So maybe don;t be so judge mental if they r the worthless Fuckers every one say give the death.YOU know it won;t happen

I live here in Yuma AZ where Tereasa unfortunately just moved away from, she lived by us and her daughter Sierra which is also my sisters bestfriend still does, this is the worst thing that i have ever seen and heard of, we just took sierra out to eat trying to be there for her and try and help her cope, but only time will heal, though that still might never work and the pain will never leave her heart, i hope everyone sends out their prayers to Sierra and her family, my family is struck from this situation also, we have known them and have been really close for about 8 years now, i hate that we have people like this in this world, its just not fair at all, and we are all still grieving and will for  long long time..

@othatjo Thx, I heard about this on the drive in to work this morning but didn't know any details other than that.

"Very alarming"? Is that the best the DPD can do to describe the deaths of five people?

 

Have we reached the point that you need at least 10 deaths (or one white female) before it's considered a "real" crime these days?

Kind of curious to see if a 'fund' of some sort will be set up for the victims families of this senseless crime - or hell - even if a makeshift memorial will be placed around the area? These lives clearly aren't worth the same effort as the Aurora victims because they're just some drunks at a dive bar. Oh, America, you never cease to amaze me.

Keep these victims in mind now before the focus changes to the suspects.  I always find it humorous how the dirbags on death row fight so hard not to be put to death.  Just look at Nathan Dunlap.

In light of these trhee cases the liberals can say what they want against the death penalty- bad childhood, an eye for and eye leaves the world blind, state sanctioned murder, but the fact of the matter is there are some people that have committed such horrific crimes that they have EARNED the death penalty.

threebang3

I am sure there will be plenty of people defedning the death penalty, but where are the ones against it??  Doubt they will chime in right now

Hey.  In light of the rash of horrific crimes in the last few months (James Holmes, Jessica Ridgeway, and now this)  anyone care to try and defend the death penalty???  Right now in the Ridgeway and Fero's case the main focus is on the victims- not the scum that did it.  Remember that now because when these scumbags are caught, then we have to hear all about their bad childhood, how society never gave them a break, how they are railroaded by the cops, how they didn't get a fair trial and on and on..................

Fero's isn't in Glendale Richard.  Did you by chance notice that the DENVER Police were investigating it and not the Glendale Police?

Notice how there is division and hate even in this comments section.  And we wonder why there is so much hate on this world.

Want to stop senseless violence and thuggery? Get a rope, find a tree, problem solved. When we start dangling violent criminals from the gallows again the others will take note. Anything less than that is just wasting time.

Tracey - Will you be praying to the same god who's allowing the homocides to happen in Colorado? If so, the prayers don't seem to be working. Try something else.

How one can be more concerned with renovations than the deaths of five people is beyond me.

one of the last vestiges of old skanky Glendale. Sad.. Maybe now it will get renovated.

 @RustyShackleford That's nothing -- the Denver Post posted a story about the mass-killings a mile from the Denver Country Club online under the smallest font it uses for hyperlinks, 2/3 of the way down the news page -- the lead article on the breaking news page today has related successively to the Jessica Ridgeway case, last night's wind, and now it's "It's ski season! A-Basin opens".   The more mass-murders, the more blasé about them Denver (or at least the DP) affects to be,  It is crystal-clear that the DP wants to soft-pedal this story, but when I suggested that to its remaining readers, my post was thumbed-down unanimously.  The consensus there seems to be that there is no problem -- anywhere in Denver.

@othatjo they identified the bodies and the owner is one of them. I'm guessing robbery gone horribly wrong.

 @RustyShackleford

 No Rusty, again, Fero's IS NOT in the city of Glendale.  It is in the city of Denver. The Glendale Police do not make a habit of chasing calls outside of their jurisdiction.

 @michael.roberts Thank you.  I can't just help but notice when I read this article this morning, I noticed the 6 prior comments (from Facebook).  One person was saying the solution is a noose.  You got Vanessa attacking Richard about his comment over senseless comment of Glendale.  Then you got Denver Tina mocking Tracey (whom I assume in disgust deleted her comment) because she wanted to pray for the victims.

@lutef1sk think it was premeditated or opportunist?
