SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Investigators are holding meetings in Summit County on Tuesday and Wednesday nights to revisit a 33-year-old double homicide cold case.
Bobbie Jo Oberholtzer and Annette Schnee were believed to be hitchhiking separately from Breckenridge to Park County in 1982 when they were killed. The women’s deaths rocked Summit and Park counties, and their killer or killers have never been found.READ MORE: When I See A 50% Chance Of Rain In The Forecast, What Does That Really Mean?
Along with the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, investigators are asking for the public’s help in solving the cold case and gaining justice for the two women.
Detectives Charlie McCormick and Gary Lindstrom are part of the 11th Judicial District Homicide Task Force and will be presenting a 33-year anniversary case review. It will include a history of the case with photos and evidence, as well as never before seen information that may help solve the mystery.
“There have always been leads to follow. It just doesn’t die, it doesn’t go away. And these aren’t just worthless leads; they are significant,” McCormick told CBS4.
The first presentation will be held Jan. 13 in Fairplay at the Foss-Smith multipurpose room of the high school, located at 640 Hathaway. The second presentation will be on Jan. 14 at the Frisco Community and Senior Center, in the Fremont Room.READ MORE: Colorado Weather: Monsoon Storms Return Sunday, But Focus Shifts A Bit West
“You never know what we’ve been missing for 30 years,” McCormick said. “Anyone who has worked on this case has thought that there very well could be a local connection.”
“They disappear in similar circumstances on the same night. They’re both hitchhiking south out of Breckenridge.”
From Breckenridge to Hoosier Pass, and even onto Highway 285 heading toward Denver, clues were scattered decades ago. McCormack thinks someone still knows something.
“This case is solvable and it is prosecutable without a doubt,” he said.
Both events will take place 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and are free to the public.MORE NEWS: Boat Ramps Closed At Three Western Slope Reservoirs, Closures Expected At Blue Mesa As Water Level Drops
