Morgan Dumas, 21, died Friday morning (Nov. 10) from injuries she suffered from her boyfriend assaulting her. Manner of death is homicide.

Grand Junction police were called to a residence near the 2800 block of Hall Avenue early morning on Thursday (Nov. 9). When they arrived they found an unresponsive female. Police were able to learn that Morgan’s boyfriend, Oscar Rodriguez, had called in the report.

Rodriguez told police that he and Morgan were out drinking the night before and got into an argument and a physical fight. He stated that he did strike Morgan and that she then hit her head. Rodriguez said he then went to bed because she had passed out, but was still breathing. There was then another physical confrontation later that same night where Rodriguez, after being slapped multiple times, pushed Dumas and caused her to fall, hit her head for a second time and go unconscious.

Later, when he woke up, Rodriguez told police that Morgan was unresponsive and that’s when he called 911. After the initial investigation, police arrested Rodriguez and charged him with assault and domestic violence.

According to the Mesa County Coroner’s Office, the official cause of death has been ruled blunt force head injuries. Homicide has been declared the official manner of death.

Here is the original story and the arrest affidavit.
