On Saturday, Oct. 29, hunters in the Sawmill Mesa area of the Uncompahgre Plateau west of Montrose reported finding what they believed to be human remains. Montrose County Sheriff's personnel were led to the location and confirmed the remains were human. On Oct. 30, sheriff's deputies and members of the Montrose County Sheriff's Posse returned and found several bones and items of clothing during a search of the area. The Montrose County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with the Montrose County Coroner's Office of Medical Investigations, is conducting the investigation. The identity of the remains are pending and no further information is available at this time.
Delta County Joint School District #50, and its special counsel, Jon Olafson, have responded to the complaint filed by Cidney Fisk, a 2016 Delta High School graduate. Fisk has filed suit in federal court, accusing DHS teachers, guidance counselors, administrators and school district leadership of retaliation after she spoke out against religious activities during school hours on school property.
