Cody Sewick charged with first-degree murder in Denver West Inn homicide (27)
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.
Big photos below.
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.
