    CO - Heather 'Helena' Hoffman, 23, found slain, Fort Collins, 21 June 2017 *Arrest*

    FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A body found floating in a lake at City Park in Fort Collins was identified Friday and the death is being treated as suspicious, the Fort Collins Police Department said.

    The Larimer County Coroner's Office said 23-year-old Heather "Helena" Hoffman of Fort Collins was found in Sheldon Lake on Wednesday night. The cause and manner of death are still pending.

    Officers responded to the initial report just after 6 p.m. and found the body.

    Hoffman worked at the McDonald's restaurant at West Elizabeth Street and City Park Avenue. She was last seen leaving work at 1 a.m. Wednesday when her shift ended.

    Hoffmann lived near Shields Street and Laporte Avenue and typically walked home from work, police said.

    She was found in the lake wearing a black polo shirt with a McDonald's logo, black pants, black boots and a black purse.

    Anyone with information is asked to email or call police at 970-221-6575, or call Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.

    Following preliminary investigations, police were led to believe that foul play may be involved, and are saying her death is suspicious.

    It's that reported allegation of her "rough past" that seem to warrant more information before we can begin to investigate. IMO sounds like her purse was still perhaps wrapped in her arm/shoulder.

    For those out of state, Ft Collins is an incredibly safe city, which makes me wonder if this was an accident.

    I'm not either but it was a short walk home and after work. And how did she end up in the water? Wondering if it was a hit and run? I don't know how close the water was to the road or the path she would have taken. COD will probably take several weeks.

    Poor girl and I feel so sad for her family. I worry about my daughter getting home safe when she works late at Mcdonalds. RIP Helena.

    It was clear in my area, but just checked past weather to confirm, and in Ft Collins it was clear overnight, ranging between 60-70 degrees. So doesn't sound like weather was a factor.

    The time she left makes me wonder about a hit and run because it's when people are leaving bars, potentially impaired.
