    DENVER - A woman was found dead in a suburban neighborhood after a rope was looped around her neck and she was dragged through the streets from a vehicle in a gruesome crime that left a trail of blood more than a mile long, police said.

    Neighbors discovered the woman's body before dawn Monday about 20 miles south of Denver. On Tuesday, sheriff's deputies were still trying to learn her identity.

    The victim's face was unrecognizable and an orange tow rope was found around her neck, said Nancy Foley, who lives next door to the house where the body was found.

    "I was trying to sleep last night, thinking about how this poor lady was dragged, treated worse than an animal," Foley said. "She was really mangled."

    It was unclear whether the woman died from the dragging injuries. Authorities planned to conduct an autopsy.

    Sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Castellano said a photo of an unidentified couple was found nearby, but investigators did not know whether it was connected to the death.

    OMG!! This is horrible. This world is full of crazy bastards. I only hope that she was already dead before she was dragged.

    My thought as well.. one can only hope she had passed away prior to being dragged. The thought that someone could be dragged behind a car.. it just blows my mind the amount of fear, pain and suffering that she would have undergone during that mile...I only hope the police are able to quickly identify this victim and find the perp that did this! They ought to get a good does of their own medicine!!

    I remember a similar attack on a black man. They tied him to the back of a car and drove for miles. His body was scattered all over the place. It makes me sick just thinking about this.

    I wonder if this was also a racist attack?

    Is this in a rural area? I would imagine so otherwise there would surely be witnesses.

    The area which she was found is semi-rural, but where the dragging started was on a major interstate. This area is several miles from my home. Three witnesses were questioned yesterday in the case. One witnesses stated he saw a car with its lights off dragging something behind the vehicle. Because of the time of night this happened, not too many people would have been around.

    The lady was alive when she was dragged. She died from asphyxiation and blunt force trauma to the head. What a horrible way to die!

    I read this morning that there is a news conference scheduled for today, possibly outlining an arrest and identifying the victim. I will try to post after I hear what is said.

    I think the fact that she had a rope around her neck rules out an accident.

    If the rope was tied purposely, I'll sure agree, but accidents can account for all manner of things happening.

    I think the fact that the car supposedly dragging the woman had its headlights off would suggest it wasn't an accident.

    There was an arrest overnight of a 36 year old illegal immigrant. Victim was apparently his girlfriend, but has not yet been publicly identified. Will post more as it becomes available.

    Man under arrest in Colo. dragging death

    CASTLE ROCK, Colo. A man pictured in a photo found at the crime scene was arrested in the death of a woman whose body was found after she was dragged behind a vehicle for at least a mile, authorities said Wednesday.

    Jose Luis Rubi-Nava, 36, was arrested Tuesday night on a charge of first-degree murder and was being held without bail in the Douglas County jail, Sheriff Dave Weaver said.
