Big photos below.
Update: Yesterday, in our first post about a homicide at the Denver West Inn (see our previous coverage below), Lakewood Police Department spokesman Steve Davis told us that a suspect was in custody, but no arrest had been made.

By late afternoon, however, Cody Sewick, 21, had been booked on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Look below for additional details and photos of Sewick, as well as more information about the crime itself.

Sewick hasn't been the busiest Facebooker, but he's posted a number of self-portraits, including this one....

...and this one:

And here's a larger look at his current profile pic:

As for posts, he hasn't shared anything since February, when he wrote, "Fuck i hate bein sick cant do shit cant even smoke this some bull shit." Previous notes from 2013 include, "Time to make momey [sic] n nothin else," "Tryin to live my life wirhout life gettin in the way if u know wat i mean," "Wanna get high" and "Wake n back [sic]."

The "About" section of his page states that he attended Woonsocket High School in Rhode Island and Wheat Ridge High School here, with his job listed as "SSI" -- presumably "Supplemental Security Income."

Now, of course, Sewick is in custody at Jefferson County Jail for the death of a still unidentified man whose body was found just after 2 p.m. yesterday at the aforementioned Denver West Inn, 7150 West Colfax.

The county coroner has yet to announce a cause of death in the case, and the LPD isn't offering any clues. Rather, cops simply note that due to investigation, detectives quickly identified Sewick as a person of interest and presumed acquaintance of the victim -- and he was located at around 2:20 a.m. yesterday morning. After interviews, he was processed on a first-degree murder beef.

Sewick is expected to make his first court appearance today. In the meantime, the LPD continues to ask anyone with additional information about Sewick, the victim or the homicide to phone the department at 303-987-7111.

Look below to see Sewick's booking photo, followed by our original post.

First rule in journalism. Get your facts straight. Cody never went to high school in Rhode Island. Second; he did post "wanna get high" put you failed to mention the second part of the post "then get a jet". You also failed to mention the posts that mention him getting up early to get to work so he obviously isn't on social security income. Bad journalism

Wow you are all blasting Cody about his looks, PICS, Etc you sound like a bunch of hoodlums yourselves actually, you don't even know the whole story yet? & because he gets high that makes him a murderer? & to the reporter, your grammar and editorial skills are just as bad as these idiots posting comments. Do not believe everything the media writes people, until you know all the facts, for example, he NEVER attended school outside of Colo where the hell did you all get that he attended High School in Rhode Island?? Wow unbelievable. Wait for all the facts people before you throw stones.

Two lives ruined because of drugs I am assuming, why else would you be I. A seedy hotel on Colfax. This kid is a cousin of ours and it is a real shame he did this horrible thing. My thoughts a prayers are with the victims family. Never ever thought he could or would do something like this. Dumb kid had his whole life ahead of him I would say not so much now...

I feel sad seeing the new details posted by Westword. The kids facebook profile makes reference to the fact , he is "too sick, to even smoke" , he aspires to wake and bake and is on SSI. I gather from this he is mentally in pretty bad shape, if he is on SSI - why no red flags ? Again? He is given money and left to his own devices? From the "book-in" it looks like he was able to figure out how to once again wake and bake, I just wonder what he was bakin'.

Look at those ears! Men with super tiny penises do shit like this. Maybe modern medicine can draw up the correlation and help these tiny wieners before they turn to aggression.

There's plenty of stranger on stranger violence on west colfax. That's not attention whoring.

Per the article: "This was not a random act, stranger-on-stranger. We have good reason to believe they were acquainted." In other words, whether or not you lived down the street from the establishment where this incident occurred has virtually NO bearing upon your personal safety. Of course, we shouldn't expect any less than attention-whoring from Lamebook DWEEBS.

You are an idiot. You know nothing about Cody or what happened. Just cuz his Facebook says it, it must be true? You're one of them "believes everything they read" people. I've known the kid since I was 15. I'm 22 now. I went to high school with him. HERE in COLORADO. All of high school. He's not on ssi. It stands for his step dads moving company. Seriously maybe you should shut up cuz you've made a fool of yourself at this point. He's an awesome kid regardless of what you know. Had a sweet heart and alllllways looked out for his loved ones. He got mixed up with the wrong people, wring time, wrong place. It can happen to anyone. And does. Now I'm not justifying or standing up for him. What he did was awful and wrong. And I feel for his loved ones. But you my friend are nothing but the idiot population on the internet these days. Grow up. Get a life. Move on. Farewell.
