Alexa Bartell Dead in rock thrown at car attack

A 20-year-old Colorado woman, Alexa Bartell, died after someone threw a rock through her windshield while she was driving. This was part of a series of apparently random attacks on cars across Jefferson County, Colorado.

Alexa Bartell’s cause of death

On Thursday, between 12 a.m. and 10 p.m., a suspect or suspects driving a light-colored truck or SUV threw rocks at five different cars.

Multiple drivers were injured, and Bartell was killed around 10:45 p.m. on the 10600 block of Indiana Street.

 The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) said that these are not games and these are people’s lives. They do not know who the suspects are, or why they’re doing this, but they want to find out.

Authorities described the rock that hit Bartell’s vehicle as a landscaping rock. Colorado authorities are still searching for suspects in the attacks and are asking anyone with information to contact the JCSO tip line at 303-271-5612.

Bartell had been driving while talking to her friend on the phone and then went silent. Her friend tracked Bartell’s location through her phone and located her vehicle on the side of the road. The 20-year-old woman was deceased inside.

Bartell’s high school friend, Emily Audette, told FOX31 Denver that the victim “really left a mark on people.”
