Family Killed Update

Castle Rock police have found the missing Jeep Cherokee of a family believed to have died in a double-murder suicide.

Police said they would examine the vehicle for clues.

The body of 49-year-old Joseph Blecha was found earlier this month in a remote part of Lincoln County. His body was about 40 yards from a pickup truck that held two badly burned bodies. Authorities suspect the bodies are those of his wife Jacqueline, and his 15-year-old stepdaughter, Ashley Martin.

Investigators believe Blecha killed his wife and stepdaughter before driving the bodies to Lincoln County and shooting himself.

No motive has been given.

Neighbors last saw Jacqueline and Ashley on September 1st. They last saw Joseph on September 5th.
