Coroner IDs man slain in Aurora house party double stabbing


AURORA | A man slain at an Aurora house party early Sunday morning died of multiple stab wounds, the Arapahoe County coroner’s office said Tuesday.

Hector Herrera-Moreno’s death was a homicide, the coroner said in a statement.

Aurora police said Herrera-Moreno and another man — who is expected to survive — were stabbed during a fight Sunday at a house party in the 16100 block of East Brunswick Drive.

The name of the man who survived his stab wounds has not been released.

On Tuesday police said they had no suspect information to release.

Police responded to the home, which is near East Yale Avenue and South Chambers Road, on a report of a fight at a house party.

When officers arrived, police said they saw people fleeing the house on foot and in vehicles but officers did not find any victims.

While police investigated, they “received information that two adult males were being treated at a local hospital for stab wound injuries,” police said in a statement.

Detectives from the department’s Major Crimes/Homicide Unit are investigating, police said.

Police are asking anyone with information on the case to call Detective Alton Reed at 303-739-6068 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters calling Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and earn a $2,000 reward.
