CSPD asks for help in cold case

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Springs Police Department's Cold Case Homicide Unit is asking for the public's assistance finding a possible witness of a 1976 homicide.

Janet Conrad was killed on December 3, 1976, in a linen room at the Antler's Hotel, 2 S Cascade Ave.

As part of this on-going investigation, the Colorado Springs Police Department has identified several potential witnesses that need to be located and re-interviewed as part of this investigation. Some of the initial information collected about these witnesses by officers and detectives was extremely limited, which makes locating them especially difficult.

One witness detectives are trying to locate is Bennie (Benny) B. Wilson, who was employed as a doorman at the motel on the night Janet Conrad was murdered. The only information we have about Mr. Wilson is that he was employed as a doorman at the motel and was described as a black male in his mid 30's to early 40's.

CSPD stresses that Wilson is not a suspect in the murder and there is no information that leads them to believe he was involved.

If you have any information about Bennie Wilson, please contact Detective Jerry Schiffelbein at 444-7673 or the Cold Case Unit by e-mail at cspdcoldcase@springsgov.com.
