Two Colorado Teens Killed in Alleged Sex Video Blackmail Plot


In a police interview, Otto allegedly confessed to killing the two teens. He said that the boys showed up at his house and told him they wanted $10,000 each.

According to the police report, Otto stated that when he told the boys he would not pay them, Jonathan "got up and went into the kitchen and opened a drawer."

"William Otto followed Danny into the kitchen at which time he saw Jonathan turn around and was holding a large butcher knife," the affidavit states. As Otto went towards his bedroom, he said he heard one of the boys tell the other, "Don't let him go in there."

Otto told police he retrieved his .22 caliber revolver, came out of his bedroom and saw Jonathan standing in the hallway with the butcher knife and Gustavo standing behind him.

"William Otto then fired his handgun he believed to be four times," the police report states. "Jonathan fell to the floor first, followed by Danny. Danny called out for his mother and fell limp."

Otto told police he drove the bodies to his family farm and "buried the boys' bodies in his favorite place on the property."

He then allegedly drove home, picked up some bloody evidence, drove back to the farm and burned the evidence, police said.

That's when Otto called Johnson to tell him what he had done.

Otto was arrested and is being held on charges of first-degree murder with no bond. He made his first court appearance on Monday and is expected to be in court again on Thursday. His inmate information did not specify whether he has retained an attorney and the Adams County Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to request for comment.
