The investigation into the killing of a 16-year-old girl outside a house party in Thornton continues as police look for witnesses and two cars.

Police are still looking for witnesses to come forward, and have now also identified to vehicles of interest.

One is a black SUV — possibly a Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, or Cadillac Escalade — with at least two occupants. The other is a red, four-door sedan, early to mid-1990’s model — possibly a Honda or Toyota — occupied by four to six people. The latter was last seen parked in the 12900 block of Leyden Street the night of the incident.
