The Boulder County coroner this morning identified the three people found dead in an Erie home this weekend as the couple that owned the property and their 4-year-old son.
Coroner Emma Hall identified the victims whose bodies were found Saturday as John Paul Farrar, 48, Elizabeth Stacy Farrar, 40, and Ian Connor Farrar, 4.
The coroner's office said it will conduct autopsies and determine the cause and manner of the family's death following further investigation.
The autopsies are scheduled Monday, according to Erie police chief Kim Stewart, who didn't provide additional information Sunday on the investigation.
Erie police have said they are not looking for a suspect in the three deaths, and that there is no danger to the public. Investigators have not divulged how the three died, or said whether foul play is suspected.
Without directly mentioning the Erie investigation, Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett on Saturday afternoon posted a message on his Facebook page about his staff working the scene of a murder-suicide in which a young child was a victim.
He wrote: “My staff sees a lot of sadness, daily. But nothing compares to a murder/suicide crime scene with a young child victim.
Guns available to anybody... and domestic violence, the root of so much tragedy and despair.”
Garnett has since removed the Facebook post.
Erie police responded to a report of a possible dead person at 1973 Gordon Court shortly before 11:30 a.m. Saturday and found the three bodies, according to a town news release.
Based on her biography on her website, Stacy Farrar was born in Southern California, but grew up in Colorado.
She earned a bachelor's degree in physics and a master's degree in geological science from the University of Colorado.
She worked as an aerospace engineer for more than a decade at Ball Aerospace and was pursuing a career in acting.
This month, according to her Facebook page, she was filming a short film that she wrote, co-produced and was acting in.
Stefanie Schy, whose son was in the same daycare as Ian, said she and Farrar became friends through playdates at each other's homes.
She said she can't believe that her friend and her son are gone.
“Ian was such a sweet boy, as most 4-year-olds are,” she said. “Stacy was a very intelligent, beautiful, kind and loving person. She was an engineer, but also an aspiring actress.”
She added that she only met John Farrar, who went by J.P., a couple of times, but “he seemed just as kind and funny and loved his family.”
She said she was last at the Farrars' home a couple of weeks ago, when Stacy Farrar alked about her plans to move because her husband was working out-of-state as a biologist and “she didn't like the distance.”
According to what appears to be John Farrar's LinkedIn page, he started a five-month-long job in January as the invasive weeds manager for Chiricahua National Monument in Arizona.
His previous work experience included three months working in the lumber and building materials department at Lowe's, working as a biological science technician for nine months at National Wildlife Research Center in Fort Collins and spending a year as a stay-at-home dad.
