FARMINGTON — An 18-year-old murder suspect from Colorado has been arrested and jailed in Utah.

Dylan Joseph Thompson, of Fort Collins, Colorado, was booked into the Davis County Jail on Friday.

Detectives with the Fort Collins Police Department say they believe Thompson killed William Grabusky, 65, and then traveled to Utah. Fort Collins police joined Davis County officers in making the arrest, according to a department Facebook post.

Thompson is being held without bail for investigation of murder, tampering with a dead body, aggravated motor vehicle theft, and unauthorized use of a financial transaction device. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Fort Collins police are still investigating the connection between Thompson and Grabusky, they said in the Friday post.

Officers said in a Facebook post earlier last week that they were investigating "several suspicious factors." They have released few details about the case.

One of Grabusky's family members called police because she hadn't heard from him for several weeks, police said in the Wednesday post. When officers went to the house, they found his body.
