About this Case:

On July 27, 1981, 57 year old Edward Connaughton, was found deceased from injuries he sustained after having been assaulted. One of Mr. Connaughton's fellow workers determined he was late for work, which was very unusual, and became worried. This co-worker, out of concern, went to Mr. Connaughton's home in the 1500 block of Shasta Drive, Colorado Springs. They noticed several items missing from Mr. Connaughton's house. They then discovered Mr. Connaughton in an upstairs bedroom, lying on the floor. They notified the Colorado Springs Police Department and the first arriving officer noted that Mr. Connaughton was deceased. The cause of death was the result of blunt force trauma to his head. Mr. Connaughton was known to have a lot of visitors to his residence. Anyone with information is asked to please contact the Colorado Springs Police Department.
