UPDATE: Investigators have arrested Christopher Andrew Miller, 29, for First Degree Murder concerning the death investigation which began yesterday afternoon at 55 Waltham Avenue in Manitou Springs.
Miller is the same person who reported the discovery of the body to the Manitou Springs Police Department.
No information surrounding motive will be released at this time and affidavits in the case have been sealed.
Miller has been booked into the Criminal Justice Center and is held without bond.
Yesterday shortly after noon, officers from the Manitou Springs Police Department were dispatched to a home in the zero hundred block of Waltham Avenue in reference to a dead body.
The Manitou Springs Police Department exercised the Memorandum of Understanding previously established with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office to investigate major crimes, and asked detectives to respond.
Detectives are in the early stages of the death investigation and due to the sensitive nature of the case, no additional details can be shared at this time.
As information becomes available it will be released.
The identity of the victim will not be released until an autopsy is completed by the El Paso County Coroner and next of kin has been notified.
