PO­LICE MAKE AR­REST IN DEATH OF LO­CAL RAP­PER

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Dy­lan Owens

Den­ver po­lice used DNA ev­i­dence to iden­tify and ar­rest a sus­pect in the fa­tal Oc­to­ber shoot­ing of Den­ver rap­per Boss Goodie (Ty­rone Adair Jr.) out­side of RiNo night­club Cold Crush.

Harold Mor­tis, 27, is be­ing held for in­ves­ti­ga­tion of first­de­gree mur­der in the slay­ing of the 29-year-old artist.

Records show Mor­tis was ar­rested Sun­day and is be­ing held at Den­ver’s down­town jail in lieu of bail. Prose­cu­tors for­mally charged him Wed­nes­day with the mur­der count as well as be­ing a pre­vi­ous of­fender in pos­ses­sion of a weapon.

Ac­cord­ing to an ar­rest af­fi­davit, po­lice used wit­ness tes­ti­mony to con­nect Mor­tis to a base­ball cap left inside Cold Crush on the night of the Oct. 10 shoot­ing. A sub­se­quent test of DNA on the hat con­nected it to Mor­tis, who had pre­vi­ously been ar­rested for ag­gra­vated rob­bery.
