Cynthia Bucher was taken into custody by Washoe County sheriff’s deputies at 5:50 p.m. after an investigation lasting more than seven months. Bucher is charged with murdering Danny Grossen, 46, also of Sun Valley, on May 16, 2009.
On that date at 2:05 a.m., deputies responded to a home in the 8000 block of Chimney Drive on a report of an injured person. Upon arrival, deputies found two women at home with a deceased man, later identified as Grossen. He appeared to have a gunshot wound to his forehead. Bucher identified herself as Grossen’s girlfriend and teams from the sheriff’s office processed the scene.
After months of investigating the mysterious death, a warrant was issued Dec. 28, 2010 for Bucher’s arrest on murder charges. On Wednesday, she was taken into custody without incident and is being held without bail.
