Federal Bureau of Investigation officials have refused to release Bishop's name although he had been identified by other media outlets.
Bishop turned himself in to the Denver Sheriff Department on Tuesday morning after a warrant was issued for his arrest, according to Denver police. "If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then".

"Then I looked at my leg and see some brown residue".
