The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office says a man was stabbed to death early Christmas morning at a residence on La Plata County Road 125, about 8 miles southwest of Durango.

Deputies said they responded to a 911 call at about 1 a.m. Tuesday regarding a man who had been stabbed.

When deputies arrived they found the resident of the home dead from an apparent stab wound.

The man was identified as Robby Schindeldecker, 43.

Investigators spoke to people at the home and learned that, apparently, Schindeldecker took part in a disturbance that resulted in his death.

No arrests were made related to the disturbance. The investigation is continuing. Based on information gathered so far, the Sheriff’s Office does not believe area residents should feel fearful for their safety.

It does not appear that the death was a suicide.

Anyone who may have information related to Schindeldecker’s death is asked to contact La Plata County Sheriff Investigator Kevin Brown at 970-382-7054.
