  • Case History

    An oilfield worker discovered the victim's skeletal remains when he kicked up one of the victim's shoes that was protruding from the ground in the vicinity of Weld County Road 8 and Weld County Road 31, near Fort Lupton.

    The body was partially buried in a deep clandestine grave in rock-hard ground which led investigators to believe more than one person was involved in the burial. Pieces of cigarettes found in the grave indicate one of the gravediggers smoked.

    The victim had been buried after July 1993, and likely in the grave for approximately a year.
