The victim was 44-year-old Joshua Jost. His cause of death was from sharp force injuries, the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said.

U.S. Marshals apprehended and arrested Tomasso June 20 in Portland. Authorities in January had issued a statement saying they suspected Tomasso was in the Spokane area.
