Police Searching For Person Of Interest In Murder Case


Colorado Springs police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating a person of interest in connection to a murder on January 18.

An arrest was made on January 19, the day after 22-year-old Dominique Marnell Griffin was found shot to death inside an apartment. Mario Nichols, 25, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

Officers now want to speak to Rashaun Demetrius Faulcon, 26, as a part of the overall investigation into the murder. Officers say that there is no probable cause to arrest Faulcon for the murder, and only want to talk to him.

Faulcon has been described as a black male, standing 6-foot-1 and weighing about 170 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos, including a six point star on his right wrist, the words “highly hated” tattooed to his right shoulder and “mostly loved” tattooed on his left shoulder. Faulcon has two felony warrants due to failing to register as a sex offender.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call police at 444-7000, or Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP. You can also text CSPD at 847411 (TIP411).

    Yes, Mario has been arrest and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. People make mistake and when they do they have to for them. I went to school with both Mario and Reshaun and they dont seem like that type to commit crimes, but who knows what a person it capable of doing behind close doors. Yes, we have a criminal justice system and people are seeking justice, but what kind of justice can you get when El paso county is so corrupt.

    I think its important to point out the details surrounding Mr. Faulcon's sexual offense conviction. He was 16 years old and never actually touched or assaulted the victim. He was convicted, along with other minors, because he did not render aid for the victim. In this homicide case, sounds like he may be a witness. Its obvious that CSPD have the killer in custody and need assistance in solidifying their case.
