A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Harry Mapps, a man suspected of shooting three people to death and setting their house on fire in Rye on Nov. 27.

“We need the public’s assistance to bring the perpetrator of this horrific crime to justice.” said District of Colorado U.S. Marshal John Kammerzell. The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office has issued felony warrants for Mapps on charges of identity theft and forgery.

Shortly after the fire, authorities said Mapps cashed checks from the victims at nearby banks. Authorities said Mapps had rented a room in the house destroyed by the fire, and was a former handyman of the victims, identified as 51-year-old Reginald Tuttle, 55-year-old Kim Tuttle and their daughter, 33-year-old Dawn Roderick.

Firefighters responding to a house fire on the 8200 block of Colorado 165 in Rye discovered the bodies. Authorities said Mapps was last seen driving a blue 2004 Chevrolet minivan with Texas license plate 7FSNK.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals Service 24 hour tipline 
at 1-877-WANTED2 
(1-877-926-8332).
