Naudia Wesley was killed in Denver nearly 3 months ago, police say, but her remains haven’t been found
Denver police are investigating the killing of a 27-year-old woman whose remains have not yet been found.
Naudia Wesley was likely killed on Nov. 13, according to the Denver Police Department, but few other details about her death are available.
Investigators started looking into the case after receiving a tip that 26-year-old Denver resident Keelyn Ashworth had killed an unknown woman, Denver police said in a statement Tuesday.
Officers attempted to carry out a search warrant at Ashworth’s apartment on Dec. 1, but Ashworth refused to leave the apartment and was later found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the police department.
Denver police did not disclose the location of Ashworth’s apartment on Tuesday, but in a Dec. 1 post on X, the department said officers were carrying out a search warrant at an apartment in the 6800 block of East Iliff Avenue when they heard a gunshot and found a man dead inside.
Court records show Ashworth had previously pleaded guilty to violating a protection order, assault by strangulation and felony menacing in multiple cases.
Investigators later determined the unknown woman in the tip was Naudia Wesley.
“Because the original tip did not include any information identifying the victim, and because Naudia Wesley had not been reported missing, it took some skilled police and forensic work to learn Naudia’s identity and confirm that she was the victim of this crime,” Denver police said in a statement Tuesday.
Wesley’s remains have not been found and the investigation is ongoing, according to the department.
Wesley previously lived in Buckfield, Maine, where the nearby Lewiston Sun Journal first reported her death Monday.
Wesley’s family told the Sun Journal she loved sports and the ocean, joining the United States. Navy after she graduated from high school.
