Death takes a holiday: Unincorporated Jeffco seeing longest murder drought since late 1940s

-A A +A
By AJ Vicens

On July 23, 2007, a Realtor arrived at a home he was selling on Scenic Drive just west of U.S. 285, about halfway between Indian Hills and Aspen Park.

A body was on the lawn. Robert Alurac, a 41-year-old Lakewood man, had been murdered.

There hasn’t been a murder since then in unincorporated Jefferson County, a stretch of 590 days as of March 4. That’s the longest Jeffco has gone without a murder since the late 1940s, when there were no murders between November 1948 and February 1951.
