Crime Scene Investigators have gone through the apartment Voight shared with Beier, and neighbors said that officers have been seen at the apartment for days, according to The Denver Channel.
One neighbor, Alyssa Zoellner, told the station:
The last couple weeks, every time I come home, every time I walk outside my apartment I see police or a crime scene investigation. We just have been asked about if we’ve seen any carpet cleaners or any weird stuff going on next door to us in this other apartment building, so we knew that it wasn’t good if we’ve been questioned about some things like that.
4. She Recently Graduated From College
According to her LinkedIn profile, Voight holds a Bachelor Degree of Applied Science in Landscape Architecture.
Voight’s profile states that she attended California State Polytechnic University-Pomona from 2012-2016.
