Just before 8 p.m. last night, the Aurora police responded to 11922 Archer Place, apartment K-23, near the Aurora Hills Golf Course to find the body of a deceased male. The man's identity has not yet been released pending the outcome of an autopsy, but police are treating the death as a homicide. They've released very few details thus far, noting that they're in the preliminary stages of the investigation. The first homicide took place on Christmas Eve outside the Rack'em Billiards and Sports Bar. See the Aurora police department's statement below and get details about who to contact with information about the case.

Hey Meeks where'd ya go? I posted some pretty factual things..... I'd like to see your facts on the crime rates.... Also please show us how easy to prove that low housing and low rental rates has nothing to do with crime. So far you have posted a link from Forbes and a whole lot of flapping your gums. The only fact that shows is what a douche canoe really is. Also having no profile pic, and joining Facebook this year even furthers the whole theory of you being a retard. That's Ruh-tard not re-tard. So, fact boy, show us all whatcha got under the hood.... What you're storing in that giant mellon of yours.

Violent crime rate in 2011 Aurora: 267.4 U.S. Average: 213.6 Violent crime rate in 2010 Aurora: 279.5 U.S. Average: 223.2 Violent crime rate in 2009 Aurora: 297.4 U.S. Average: 238.0 Violent crime rate in 2008 Aurora: 314.4 U.S. Average: 252.4 Violent crime rate in 2007 Aurora: 333.0 U.S. Average: 259.7 Violent crime rate in 2006 Aurora: 374.5 U.S. Average: 264.1 Violent crime rate in 2005 Aurora: 386.4 U.S. Average: 258.9 Violent crime rate in 2004 Aurora: 361.7 U.S. Average: 256.0 Violent crime rate in 2003 Aurora: 361.6 U.S. Average: 262.6 Violent crime rate in 2002 Aurora: 397.2 U.S. Average: 272.2 Violent crime rate in 2001 Aurora: 366.3 U.S. Average: 276.6 Violent crime rate in 2000 Aurora: 353.4 U.S. Average: 277.6 Violent crime rate in 1999 Aurora: 352.7 U.S. Average: 286.4 Hmm higher than us average average every year.....And propagandizing due to the theatre shooting in order to save face doesn't count. A simple crime rate search on Google will allow people to see for themselves. I feel weird not calling you names and using vulgarity towards you, since you hurl them around so much. I'll try.... So busta...how about you crawl back into your filthy third floor motel room off Peoria and load another rock in your lightbulb.... Dickhead. Maybe this time your pathetic fucking heart will explode. But due to the stench of truck stops and hooker pussy it will take the cops time to find your rotting corpse, which nobody cares about anyway. Then you'll be just another statistic in the wonderful city of aurora, you ignorant motherfucker. Did you notice I also used the same big swear words as you did? It's all about raising the bar I guess. Now people will think I'm as cool as you! Seriously though....I hope you get hit by the bus you drive.

Not angry, just posting cold hard facts. Also, I find it utterly hilarious that you somehow believe low housing/rental prices automatically means high crime rates when that can easily be proven false. Clearly, you enjoy posting lies and generally idiotic rants for which you have extremely difficulty defending. I refer to you with such names because you repeatedly demonstrate to be a dumb ignorant fuck on these threads. Let's now add to the list wannabe gentrifying asshat....dickhead!

Well the fact that you use ozone alert and smelly in the same sentence shows us all your true dirty hippy mentality. Also the fact that you are actually angry because someone is picking on aurora is quite humorous. Like I said, I'm a native here. You? I am far from ignorant. Anyone who chooses to drive into aurora or walk or ride a bike, only needs to use their eyes to see what it's like. A quick look on realtor.com will show the lower home prices and lower rent prices. We all know in this day and age what that means. I'm glad you're happy living there! I never come close to that area so it means I never have to deal with the likes of people like you. Also I'd like to point out the fact that you have called me nigga, motherfucker, pathetic, ignorant and busta. You're setting a fine example for all to see that the fine people of aurora are truly kind and compassionate. You sir have a wonderful new year and make sure you lock your doors!

Actually no. The rest of the world outside white-bread American suburbia wouldn't give two shits about the next KARL HALVERSON PIERSON going off..

No, the "pit" of the metro area is that smelly portion of unincorporated Adams County that borders the northern city limits of Denver and is often the root cause for many ozone alerts. Also, Denver still tops Aurora in overall violent crime rates despite the influx of yuppie scum from the coasts in recent years within the City & County of Denver (and the the subsequent exile of poor/working class minorities into Aurora). Besides, even the "worst" areas of Denver metro are considered "average" in many Southern cities and, let's face it: Compton is just one of several shit stains in La-La Land, though it pales in comparison to the wastelands in many former Rust Belt metropolises. You ignorant motherfucker. Learn to read instead of jamming your fat fingers on the keyboard for once in your pathetic life...BUSTA!

Thanks John I get tired of posting this REAL data to counter WW obvious hatred of Aurora. Maybe I will see if the city council can ban weed ads in free newspapers. What you thing about that WW?

Nigga? What does that even mean? Aurora has it's decent spots..... It's a good sized city. It's also the pit of the metro area. Born and raised here. And although obviously not Compton (been there a few times) aurora is not the garden spot people try to paint it to be.

"In that city"??? Which city? I understand they mean Aurora, but what a sloppy title.

How many is that for the year? Gotta be pushing 6-7. Add in all other crimes and you have Compton in Colorado.

Yet I get bashed by locals because local law enforcement tells me to steer clear of Aurora because of what I drive & my physical appearance.

And I'd say you're ignorant if you think these types of incidents ONLY happen in Aurora.
