On October 30, 2021, at approximately 10:08 a.m., deputies were dispatched to the 1300 block of Pleier Drive on a report of someone on scene who was seriously injured and needed help.
Based on the information our Communications Center received from this person, El Paso County Sheriff’s deputies, Monument Police Department officers, Palmer Lake Police Department officers, and members of the Donald Wescott Fire Department, and AMR (American Medical Response), responded.
When deputies entered the residence, they found two juveniles and two adults deceased. El Paso County Sheriff's Office detectives were called out to process the scene.
Additionally, based on other evidence and observations, the Sheriff’s Office Tactical Support Unit was requested to respond to the scene. An Everbridge, otherwise known as a “reverse 911”, was sent to the community encouraging residents within a two-mile radius of the scene to shelter in place, lock their doors and windows, and stay away from exterior walls. Based on what was discovered at the scene, without having all details available at the time and out of an abundance of caution the Everbridge was sent out while law enforcement continued to evaluate the evidence they were finding.
The deceased victims have been identified as Yvette M. Siegert-Kreb (50 years old), Felicity Kreb (13 years old), and Barrett Kreb (9 years old). The suspect has been identified as Christof M. Kreb, DOB: 01/27/1966. The cause and manner of death for all will be released by the El Paso County Coroner's Office once they make a ruling.
Our sympathies go out to the family and friends of all affected by this tragedy.
