Suspect in death: Rene Ogden, mother
Records show that the El Paso County Department of Human Services had received an allegation of child maltreatment against the family in 2003 . The father, Tommy Ogden, was a former Fort Carson soldier who served two deployments in Iraq.
The Gazette newspaper in Colorado Springs quoted friends as saying the mother suffered from depression. The son, Chase, had autism. Another family friend was quoted by Channel 7 news as saying the mother was sick with chronic pain and other health issues.
The state never issued a child-fatality report on the deaths because at the time, the Colorado Department of Human Services did not issue such reports when there were no surviving siblings. Such reports are required now, even when surviving siblings do not exist.
