Fugitive in Rye deaths charged with Murder, Arson

Harry Mapps, 59, the man who is suspected in the shooting deaths of 3 people in Rye in late November, has been charged with 3 counts of First Degree Murder and one count of Arson, making him one of the most sought after fugitives in the country, according to Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor.

The victims Reginald and Kim Tuttle, ages 51 and 55 respectively, and Dawn Roderick, 33 were found shot in in their rural Rye home after it was set on fire. Mapps is a former handyman who rented a room at the home.

In early December, the U.S. Marshals Office joined the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office in the nationwide search for Mapps. He is 6 feet tall, 135 pounds and has red hair, and was last seen driving a blue 2004 Chrysler Mini-van bearing Texas license plate# 7FSNK.

Anyone with information Mapps' whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals Service 24 hour tipline at 1-877-WANTED2 (1-877-926-8332). A reward of up to $5,000 is offered for information leading directly to Mapps' arrest.
