PUEBLO — Pueblo County authorities say they are still looking for a man suspected of shooting three people to death and then setting the home they were in on fire.

The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office said Monday that 59-year-old handyman Harry Mapps is the primary suspect in the deaths of 51-year-old Reginald Tuttle, 55-year-old Kim Tuttle and their daughter, 33-year-old Dawn Roderick.

Firefighters called to the home in the southern Colorado town of Rye on Wednesday morning found the three dead with apparent gunshot wounds.

Investigators say Mapps cashed checks bearing the name of one of the victims in Pueblo and La Junta on the day of the fire. A nationwide warrant seeks his arrest for identity theft, forgery and theft above $5,000.
