Kristine Kirk Murder: Family Puts Focus on Victim and Kids, Not Pot Edibles Controversy

A family photo of Kristine Kirk. Additional images, a video and more below.
The April 14 murder of Kris Kirk immediately caused a media furor. For one thing, she had been on the phone with a 911 operator for an extended period of time when her husband, Richard Kirk, allegedly shot her to death. For another, a warrant revealed that Richard has consumed a marijuana edible prior to pulling the trigger, leading to heavy hype over pot candy. (See update below.)

Through it all, Kirk's family has remained silent. But now, they've spoken out, as well as releasing a moving statement that ignores the cannabis edibles debate to focus on Kris and the loves of her life -- the three sons she left behind. See the complete statement, new photos and more below.

Phil Lucero's production company has worked on plenty of high-profile projects over the years. In April, for instance, he worked with actor Harrison Ford, and other recent efforts featured the likes of Governor John Hickenlooper and former Denver Mayor Federico Pena -- all of which makes his death even harder to process. He was found shot to death in a car parked on Martin Luther King Boulevard, and police are sharing little about the circumstances or possible suspects. Details and more photos below.
