A 27-year-old man from Colorado has been taken into custody after allegedly killing his roommate. The suspect, Garrett Littenberg, is facing charges of first-degree murder for stabbing his roommate multiple times, leaving him dead in a pool of his own blood. The Boulder Police Department responded to a domestic disturbance call on Tuesday evening, where they discovered the victim with multiple stab wounds. Littenberg, who lived with the victim, was apprehended at the scene and criminally charged.
According to the Boulder Police Department, officers arrived at a residence on Zamia Avenue following reports of a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, they found an adult male victim with several stab wounds. The victim, whose identity has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. Littenberg, who shared the residence with the victim, was immediately taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder.
A probable cause affidavit obtained by the Daily Camera provided further details about the alleged attack. When the police arrived at the house, they discovered the door open and followed footprints leading from the living room to the second floor. Littenberg emerged from an upstairs bedroom, shirtless and with blood-covered arms, while the victim lay on the ground in a pool of blood. Knives were found nearby, and a flannel shirt had been wrapped around the victim’s neck and head.
During interviews with the police, Littenberg’s family members revealed that the victim had called them, expressing concern about Littenberg’s behavior. Shortly after the call, they heard Littenberg shouting nonsensical rants. When questioned about his roommate’s whereabouts, Littenberg allegedly confessed, stating, “Don’t worry about him. He’s dead. I killed him.”
Littenberg has no prior criminal record in Colorado, and his family informed the police that he had been taking prescription medications for psychosis and anxiety. The investigation into the case is ongoing, and Littenberg is currently being held without bond.
