Roommate of Annie Meyer arrested in Colorado

The roommate of Leann "Annie" Meyer has been arrested on suspicion of murder in Colorado.

The Denver Post reported Monday night that Melissa Miller, 54, of Lakewood was arrested Monday by Wheat Ridge police and investigators with the Park County Sheriff's Office. She is being held without bond in the Park County jail.

Meyer was reported missing in late February. Her remains were discovered July 4 near a cabin in Park County, the Denver Post reported. There were no signs of a struggle or foul play at Meyer's home in the 4700 block of Newland Street, police said.

The cause of death has yet to be released.

Miller was living with her parents in Lakewood, according to the Post.

Meyer, 51, was last heard from Feb. 10 during a phone conversation with her mother. Authorities searched Meyer's home multiple times after she was reported missing by her coworkers on Feb. 27, but found no signs of foul play, police said.
