The La Plata County Sheriffs Office has concluded its investigation of the Dec. 25 stabbing death of Robby Schindeldecker.
The investigation determined that Schindeldecker, 43, attacked one or more people at a house on County Road 125 about eight miles southwest of Durango, a Sheriffs Office news release said.
Witness interviews indicated Schindeldecker was stabbed during an altercation with other residents early Christmas morning, the release said.
When deputies arrived in response to a 911 call, they found Schindeldecker dead, the Sheriffs Office said.
An autopsy concluded Schindeldecker was stabbed once in the chest and once in the upper leg. One or both of the wounds were fatal, the news release said.
The Sheriffs Office is in the process of turning over the results of its investigation to the 6th Judicial District Attorneys Office for its review, the release said.
