The person police wanted to talk to about Emily Weikert's death was 51-year-old Robert Lewis, who had been recently fired after harassing her at work.

He was found dead with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head after SWAT officers entered his apartment Thursday evening. Police say he is now a suspect in the investigation.

Weikert and Lewis worked at CoBank in Greenwood Village, which specializes in agribusiness lending.

On Friday morning, Bev Marquez from Metro Crisis Services was in the 9NEWS studios Friday morning to discuss how to deal with harassment and how to protect yourself outside of work.

The crisis hotline at Metro Crisis Services offers free, direct services to Coloradans for mental health and substance abuse crises, information, and resource referrals. The Crisis Line (1-888-885-1222) is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by experienced and licensed mental health professionals who provide support, consultation and assistance to anyone in the community who may need it; individuals, concerned family and friends, treatment providers, law enforcement and first responders.
