The Denver Police Department's Cold Case Unit has successfully brought two "cold" homicide cases to resolution. The first; DPD case #93-576902, occurred on June 5, 1993. The victim, John Maxwell, was shot and killed at the rear of 4542 E. 16th Avenue. The second; DPD case #93-577066, occurred the following day, June 6, 1993. The victim, Robin Hoard, was shot and killed in the 4900 block of Crown Boulevard. This second homicide was especially traumatic as it occurred in the home of the victim's father and in front of her siblings. Detective Dixie Grimes was assigned these cases for follow-up investigation. Almost immediately her tenacity and determination paid off by linking two cases to the same unknown offender. The investigation revealed the victims knew each other at the time of the murders, and were associated with the unknown suspect. Through Detective Grimes continued pursuit, the investigation revealed that Theodore Moore (09/24/69) was the primary suspect. Moore is currently being held in the Department of Corrections on an Aggravated Assault conviction. Detective Grimes and District Attorney Investigator Tom Haney were able to garner a confession from Mr. Moore where he admitted full responsibility to both cases. As a result of Det. Grimes efforts, the Denver District Attorney accepted a plea agreement from Mr. Moore. Today, Friday August 25th, Theodore Moore pled guilty to two counts of Second Degree Murder for the deaths of John Maxwell and Robin Hoard and was sentenced to 64 years in the Department of Corrections.
