Eric Cobain, 49, was arrested in the murder of 41-year-old instructor Melissa Wright. Wright was discovered dead at the 7100 block of East Lowry Boulevard at Lakewood on Saturday, May 29.
An autopsy was finished and the reason for death was from numerous gunshot wounds.
The Cherry Creek School District confirmed Wright was a mathematics instructor for pupils with acute educational disabilities in I-Team Manor. Earlier this season, she had been appointed a Golden Heart Honoree for her attempts to unite work-based learning and mathematics in the kind of a school-based firm, Moondream Esentials.
“[Wright] always goes the excess mile for her students, while it’s helping them start a company or access crucial equipment,” fellow educator Kristin Louise wrote back in March. “Melissa has so much compassion and instinct for how to encourage students I respect that she is always keen to learn more so that she could keep growing as a individual, which can be indeed inspirational.”
The arrest affidavit is sealed and not accessible right now.
