GOLDEN, Colo. (AP/CBS4) — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after hikers found skeletal remains on Lookout Mountain.
Spokeswoman Jacki Kelley says it appears the body had been there for some time. She says it was in a remote location near the Windy Saddle Trail.
At this time investigators are not able to determine if the victim was a man or a woman. The remains may be sent to a lab in Texas for DNA testing.
