Update Aug. 28 7:15 p.m.:

Two suspects have been identified in the assault case involving CSU alum Keith Jentzsch, according to a Fort Collins police press release. Although the investigation is ongoing, detectives believe that these are the only individuals involved in the assault.


The names of the suspects will not be released until after the case has been presented to the Larimer County District Attorney.

Original story:

Keith Jentzch, Colorado State University art alumni and exhibit director at the University Art Museum, was attacked outside of his home near Avery Park on August 7. Fort Collins Police are still undergoing investigations for the cause of his injuries.

After multiple surgeries, Jentzch is responsive, but the recovery is ongoing. His partner, Amy Reckley, started a fund where community members can donate toward medical expenses. The fund has raised over $14,000 thus far.

Jentzch’s family contacted FCPD after finding him seriously injured lying in front of his home. According to his family, he was looking for fireworks in the neighborhood near his home before the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident or anything that happened  in the area that night should contact Fort Collins Police Det. Marnie Christensen at 970-221-6580.
