LONE TREE, Colo. — Metro Denver Crime Stoppers and the Lone Tree Police Department are asking for the public's help in locating a suspect accused of killing a Centennial man in a Lone Tree parking lot near the Park Meadows Mall.
Michael Lohmeier, 73, was found shot to death in his 2009 light blue Toyota Highlander in a parking lot in the 8500 block of South Yosemite Street around 12:25 p.m. on Nov. 4. His keys, wallet and camera were still in his vehicle after the shooting.
"Mike had no enemies, I don't think. So this makes it even more senseless and more difficult, I think, to come to grips with," said Jay Grenawalt, Lohmeier's best friend.
