DENVER — A suspect has been arrested in the shooting death of a woman in an east Denver alleyway.

According to the Denver Police Department (DPD), 40-year-old Cornelius Haney has been taken into custody.

On Saturday morning, officers responded to an alley between the 1400 block of North Verbena Street and North Valentia Street, DPD said.

The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition, and DPD announced that she had died a few hours later. She was identified Tuesday as 21-year-old Heather Perry.

Officers processing the scene located a spent cartridge casing, suspected blood and clothing according to the probable cause statement released by DPD.

Officers reviewing surveillance video taken near the alley, followed Haney's tracks as he walked down the alley, got into an altercation with the victim, and leave the alley toward East Colfax Avenue, according to the statement.

In the video, officers also saw what could possibly be a firearm in Haney's left hand, according to the statement.

Upon reviewing video from the Motel 9, officers saw Haney remove his jacket and place it in the dumpster in front of the motel, according to the statement.

Using the High Activity Location Observation (HALO) camera in the area, officers spotted video of two suspects leaving a stairwell at 8405 East Colfax Avenue that only accesses two rooms at the Westerner Motel, according to the statement.

Using surveillance video in the area and HALO camera footage, police were able to locate Haney inside a nearby motel, according to the statement.

Police responded to the Westerner Motel, to conduct an interview with the occupants of a room where they believed Haney to be staying, according to the statement.

Police found Haney hiding inside the bathroom with what officers suspected to be cocaine inside the toilet.


Heather Perry, age 21

Suspect in Denver murder was paroled 3 weeks before killing due to coronavirus concerns at Colorado prisons
Cornelius Haney became eligible for parole in 2017 and was released April 15

May 15, 2020 at 2:22 p.m.

A suspect in the fatal Denver shooting of a 21-year-old woman was paroled from Colorado’s prison system three weeks before the killing due to coronavirus concerns.

Cornelius Haney, now 40, pleaded guilty in 2016 to robbery and was sentenced to seven years in prison
, court records show. He was paroled April 15 — four months before his mandatory parole date — under powers granted to the Colorado Department of Corrections by Gov. Jared Polis meant to speed up certain releases from the prison system to lower the population amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Haney had been eligible for parole since March 2017.

“Mr. Haney had a mandatory release date of Aug. 22, 2020, and would have been required to be released at that time regardless of the Parole Board decision,” Department of Corrections spokeswoman Annie Skinner said in an emailed statement Friday. “Mr. Haney was released due to special needs parole criteria. When looking at special needs parole criteria, the Department of Corrections’ medical staff reviews offenders for risk factors related to COVID as documented by the Centers for Disease Control.”
