Michael Close Colorado shooting Isabella Thallas and Darian Simon

A 21-year-old woman from Denver was killed by a man from Denver because of dog poop.

A jury in Denver found a man guilty of murder for shooting and killing a 21-year-old woman with an AK-47 after her dog pooped outside his apartment.

Michael Close, 38, had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but a jury decided on Thursday that he knew what he was doing when he shot and killed Isabella Thallas and hurt her boyfriend, Darian Simon, according to the Denver Post.

In a prepared statement, Denver’s District Attorney Beth McCann said she was “delighted” that her office was able to help the victims get justice.

Prosecutors said Close had a “verbal exchange” with Thallas and Simon on June 10, 2020, when they were trying to get their dog, Rocko, to go to the bathroom in a rock garden outside Close’s apartment on Huron Street near Coors Field.
