AuroraNews1.com publishes name of December 18th Aurora fatal car crash victim 12/23/14

12/23/14 Aurora, CO – After much deliberation and having received multiple tips from our viewers about the identity of last Thursday’s 12/18/14 fatal car crash victim here in Aurora, we at AuroraNews1.com have decided to publish the name of the woman who was killed in that horrible single-car accident that night.  The victim, who’s memorial plans are currently available publicly on the internet, was 25 year old Desja “Deiiea” A. Manuel of Aurora, CO.  The Aurora Police Department has not yet officially released Desja’s name to the public but news of her identity and death have spread like wildfire on social media, the internet and here on AuroraNews1.com in the form of viewer tips.  Aurora Police Department (APD) investigators are still working diligently on the accident investigation and we expect more details to hopefully be released in the next few days.  The fatal single car accident occurred last Thursday December 18th around 8PM near the intersection of E. Alameda Ave. and S. Potomac St. here in Aurora.

We don’t know a lot about Desja but here is what we can tell you.  She was a artist in a local rap group called “Slimmderella”.  She created an “All female rap battle League” locally.  She owned a small business.  She was very connected on social media and apparently admired by many.

Although APD has not yet released any new information, we at AuroraNews1.com have been the only news media outlet in Metro Denver consistently reporting on this tragic crash and we will continue to do so.  We do believe that the 3 young males who were passengers in Desja’s car that night are all still hospitalized in unknown condition .  It is our understanding as well that the 3 males are all under 18 years old.  We have had a huge on-line following on this story which we broke exclusively here at AuroraNews1.com and we want to hear from you about Desja, her life’s story, and her last night alive.  If you have any information about Desja, photos of her, or knowledge of what she was doing the night that she died which you wish to share with us, please contact us via this web site or email us at: news@auroranews1.com and we will try to post your thoughts or photos. A memorial service is planned for Desja Manuel on Monday December 29th in Denver, CO.  Shane Anthony reporting AuroraNews1.com
