BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (KMGH) — Three people have been arrested and one is wanted in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found near the Realization Point trailhead in Boulder County, Colorado on July 24.

The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office obtained four arrest warrants for the suspects, who are believed to have been involved in the death of Alexis Baca close to the Realization Point trailhead. Investigators said they believe she knew the suspects and do not think it was a random attack.
