The death of a man in Fort Collins, Colorado, resulted in a Davis County arrest Friday. 

Dylan Joseph Thompson, 18, is being held without bail at Davis County Jail. He is facing a murder charge  after William Grabusky, 65, was found dead in his Colorado apartment Wednesday, Aug. 2, according to the (Fort Collins) Coloradoan. The Larimer County Coroner’s Office ruled the death a homicide the following day, but as of Tuesday had not released how or when Grabusky died.

Thompson was booked into the jail at 9:04 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, according to Davis County Jail booking reports.

Thompson was arrested by the Davis County Sheriff’s Office in South Weber, according to Lisa Eggett, a records clerk for the Davis County Sheriff’s Office. It was not immediately clear if or how there was a connection between Thompson and Grabusky.

The Coloradoan reported that detectives from Fort Collins traveled to Utah and assisted the sheriff’s office with the investigation. 

The state has filed a request with the area courts to send Thompson back to Colorado, and Thompson is scheduled to have an extradition hearing Wednesday.
