EVANS, Colo. (KDVR) – A police department in Colorado has reopened an investigation into the death of a 28-year-old woman after a television station uncovered additional evidence in the case.

KDVR’s Justin Joseph looked into the apparent suicide of Ashley Fallis, who died after a New Years’ party in 2012.

Her husband, Tom Fallis, was home when she died and made the 911 call.

While her death was ruled a suicide, neighbors and family members did not believe that was the case.

KDVR says the police detective over the case omitted and changed key witness statements.

Chief Rick Brandt, with the Evans Police Department, said, “This new information includes alleged eye and ear witness accounts that we were previously unaware of and are of a serious enough nature to warrant further investigation in this case.” 

He added, “I extend my sincere sympathy to the family of Ashley Fallis for their loss and the revisited grief that can accompany the reopening of a case such as this one.”
