Aurora murder investigation closed after suspect found dead in Denver


AURORA | A man wanted in connection with the shooting death of a 30-year-old woman in Aurora last month has since been found dead in Denver, Aurora police announced Monday.

Investigators said Eric Huff, 45, was suspected of shooting and killing Seteria Nicole Black in the area of 695 Dillon Way the morning of June 28.

A passerby called 911 after seeing Black bleeding from a gunshot wound on a nearby patch of lawn. She was declared dead at the scene.

Facebook pages for Black indicate she attended Hinkley High school in Aurora.

Authorities began trying to locate Huff after identifying him as a suspect in the killing on July 11, Aurora police announced.

But officials later learned that Denver police recently found Huff dead in Denver. No details on his death were released Monday morning.

A spokesperson for the Denver Police Department said Huff was found dead just west of the Aurora border in the 700 block of South Alton Way. Investigators do not currently believe there is a criminal element in connection with Huff’s death.

The Aurora investigation into Black’s killing has now been closed, police said.

If he was just “suspected” of the crime, shouldn’t the investigation continue, to make sure no one else was involved? No, that would be common sense.
