Family Found Dead In Burning Home Remembered

By  | 

Funerals for three family members who were found dead in a burning home were held Monday.

Reginald and Kim Tuttle, and their daughter Dawn Roderick were found shot to death the day before Thanksgiving when firefighters responded to their burning home in Rye.

A nationwide manhunt is underway for Harry Mapps.

Mapps was an employee at Reginald Tuttle's trucking company, and had been renting a room from him for the past six months. Authorities say at 8:20 a.m. on the day of the fire, Mapps stopped at a bank in Pueblo and cashed a $4,000 check from Tuttle's account. Less than two hours later, he cashed another check for $4,000 at a bank in La Junta.

There are currently arrest warrants issued for Mapps for identity theft, theft above $5,000 and forgery. The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office also says he is now the prime suspect for the Tuttle family murders.

Mapps is described as thin, with red hair and blue eyes. He was photographed on the day of the murders with an unkempt beard. He is believed to be driving a blue 2004 Chrysler Town and Country, Texas license plate 7FSNK. He is considered armed and dangerous.
