BOULDER, Colo. — A developmentally disabled Boulder man, who was beaten with a baseball bat and golf club during a burglary on March 31, died Tuesday morning.
On Monday, Boulder Chief Deputy District Attorney Sean Finn said Aaron Tuneberg, 30, was not expected to survive his injuries. He confirmed Tuesday morning that Tuneberg had passed, according to Boulder’s Daily Camera.
Shortly before midnight on March 31, police received a call from a man saying his friend had been assaulted with a baseball bat. Officers arrived on scene to discover a beaten and unconscious Tuneberg inside his apartment in the 5500 block of Arapahoe Avenue.
The attack occurred during the theft of an Xbox video game console, police said.
Austin Holford, 18, and the caller, Luke Pelham, 18, were later arrested in connection with the brutal beating.
