Case Description


File Number: 05-42426

The Victim: Thomas Raymond Kinslow, 20 years old, shot and killed 11/22/05. 

The Crime: On 11/22/05 at approximately 1:40 a.m., Thomas Raymond Kinslow had just finished his shift at Hollywood Home Video located at Academy Boulevard and LaSalle Street.  Tommy, as he was called by his family, drove a short distance to his home.

At approximately 1:45 a.m., several 911 calls were received reporting shots fired in the 3900 block of Constitution Avenue. CSPD police officers arrived at that location within minutes of the 911 calls to find Tommy Kinslow lying in the middle of Constitution Avenue a short distance from where he had parked his car adjacent to his residence.  Tommy died from multiple gunshot wounds.

There were eyewitnesses to the crime from vehicles that were traveling on Constitution Avenue at the time and place of the crime.  These eyewitnesses reported seeing the shooting and provided descriptions of the suspect. Although there was some discrepancies in the eyewitnesses accounts, all agreed that the suspect was a slender male of unknown race, about 6', wearing dark colored clothing. In addition to these eyewitnesses, several residences in the nearby townhouses heard the gunshots and some reported seeing an individual in dark colored clothing departing the crime scene on foot. Search of the area by K-9 teams did not locate the suspect.

Tommy was a 2003 graduate of Harrison High School where he lettered in football and basketball. Some of his favorite pastimes were playing basketball at the Hillside Community Center and hanging out with his friends at the Hooka Bar. He was a student at Pikes Peak Community College at the time of his death. 


The Colorado Springs Police Department Homicide Cold Case Unit is currently responsible for approximately 90 unsolved homicide cases dating back to 1949. CSPD considers a case to be cold if it remains unsolved for more than one year.
