Police arrest suspect in murder of missing Fort Collins woman whose body was found in a state park
January 18, 2018
Police have arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with the murder of a Fort Collins woman who was reported missing in December and later found dead in a state park.
Khalid White has been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, sexual assault and identity theft. He was booked into the Larimer County Jail Wednesday.
Kimberlee Graves, 41, was last seen at her home on Dec. 4. Four days later, a friend called police to request a welfare check. Officers stopped by her home but no one answered the door.
The friend entered the home a couple days later and found it ransacked. Fort Collins police believe that was a crime of opportunity as many people had a key to her home. Graves' car was found abandoned in a parking garage on Dec. 13.
Detectives learned that White knew Graves and potentially had information about her disappearance, according to a statement from the Fort Collins Police Department. When he didn't show for a probation appointment on Dec. 14, authorities issued an arrest warrant.
