A Colorado mom was stabbed to death by a homeless man whom she reportedly was letting stay under her roof, police said.
Jeanna Leslie, 49, was found dead last week at her Denver loft after she opened her home to 40-year-old Terry Dunford, CBS News reported.
Friends said that the mom of four wanted to help Dunford and another homeless man and allowed them to stay with her when she was killed.
“You always want to do the right thing,” neighbor Antonio Grant told CBS. “And that’s all she was doing was the right thing.”
Leslie’s ex-husband called 911 Tuesday night after she never picked up their children from school.
Authorities responded to her home at the Rio Grand Lofts where they found her body stabbed multiple times and identification belonging to Dunford, according to CBS.
Surveillance footage showed Leslie and Dunford buying beer Feb. 7 before returning to her apartment, according to police.
Investigators determined that her body was inside the home for six days before she was found dead.
Her family said that Dunford sent the mom threatening messages and believed he was manipulating her, news station KDVR reported.
“You can’t just trust everyone,” her daughter Brittany Leslie told the station. “It doesn’t matter who they are. It doesn’t matter where they come from.”
Dunford was booked Saturday morning on first-degree murder charges after police received a tip about his whereabouts.
A GoFundMe page was created to raise money for Leslie’s funeral expenses.
