On February 4, 2013, 21-year-old Kelsie Schelling discovered she was eight weeks pregnant. The father was her boyfriend, 28-year-old Donthe Lucas. An elated Kelsie immediately texted photos of the ultrasound to Donthe and her unborn child’s grandmother-to-be, Donthe’s mother, Sara Lucas. Donthe texted Kelsie back asking her to come over after her shift so they could talk about the news in-person. Kelsie agreed and drove the almost 2-hour drive from Denver to Pueblo to meet Donthe. Kelsie was never seen alive again.
