William Costello, a real estate broker with ties to some of the state’s top political figures in the Democratic Party, was charged after his DNA was tied to unsolved sexual assault cases from 2008, 2010 and 2011.
The Denver Post reported Costello was driving the SUV of Democratic political strategist Mike Stratton when he was pulled over and arrested by authorities. Costello was using the SUV to deliver Democrat campaign signs in Durango, Colo.
Costello is also a friend of former Colorado Democratic Gov. Dick Lamm, who once asserted that elderly people have a “duty to die and get out of the way.” Lamm also has called for health-care rationing and complained that many elderly people feel entitled to have taxpayers fund medical procedures that will prolong their lives.
Costello allegedly sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in 2008, a 22-year-woman in 2010 and a 49-year-old woman in 2011. Authorities subsequently charged him with two counts of second-degree kidnapping, two accounts of sexual assault on a child and three counts of sexual assault. He was also charged with two counts of impersonating a police officer during two of the attacks.
