A Virginia woman is questioning the investigation by Glenwood Springs police into the Nov. 17 death of her daughter.
Lurina Rios, 26, was found dead in her room in Glenwood Springs. The autopsy ruled the death to be an accident resulting from alcohol and drug intoxication. However, Rios’ mother, Dee Wickham, says police ignored bruising on her body that indicates she was assaulted before her death, even if it wasn’t what killed her. “Our daughter was assaulted, and no one will do anything about it,” Wickham said.
