AURORA — In the early morning hours of Feb. 18, 2017, a 29-year-old man was trying to do the right thing – he was intervening in an assault at an Aurora apartment complex. But the good Samaritan was shot and killed for his efforts.
Three years after the murder of Kelly Acosta, Aurora police are no closer to finding his killer. But a $37,000 reward being offered appears to show that police and his family haven’t moved away from seeking justice.
Anyone with information on the robbery or shooting is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
