  • Case History

    On July 14, 2001, a human head was discovered floating in Little Dry Creek Alpha pond, a local fishing pond, at 2601 West 64th Avenue, in an industrial area of Adams County.

    The head had been mechanically removed from the body. Divers searched the bottom of the pond and dogs scanned the perimeter but did not find additional remains. Investigators at the time said the head may have floated down Little Dry Creek into the pond.

    On July 21, 2001, additional remains including the legs, from the calf down, were discovered in a field near 56th and Pecos Street. The legs had been severed from the body and buried, with the right foot protruding from the ground. The area is close to the railroad tracks where homeless people camp.

    DNA testing linked the legs and head as belonging to the same person. No identification records were found near the body parts, and authorities were unable to link the victim to any missing persons.
