U.P. man suspected in 3 Colo. deaths

KINGSFORD(AP) – A man who grew up in the Upper Peninsula has been arrested in the killing of three people in Colorado.

Fifty-nine-year-old Harry C. Mapps was arrested in Oklahoma after a monthlong search and is awaiting his return to Colorado to face first-degree murder charges. The sheriff of Pueblo County, Colo., said Mapps set fire to the victims’ house Nov. 27 to cover up the killings.

The attack claimed the lives of Kim and Reggie Tuttle and their adult daughter, Dawn Roderick.

Mapps waived his right to an extradition hearing Monday before a judge in eastern Oklahoma’s Sequoyah County, about 700 miles from the crime scene.

The Iron Mountain Daily News said Mapps is a former resident of Kingsford and graduated from Kingsford High School in 1972.
