BOLO issued for suspect in Maggie Long case

The Park County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the department issued a “be on the lookout,” or BOLO, alert Thursday evening for a suspect in the death of 17-year-old Platte Canyon High School student Maggie Long, but declined to confirm details reported by several Denver TV news stations on the grounds that it would compromise the investigation.

“We did issue a BOLO, but it was not intended for public consumption,” said Undersheriff Dave Wohlers. “It was supposed to go out through a confidential law enforcement source. … I can’t confirm what (the news stations) are reporting – it’s really quite disruptive to our investigation. Because of the problems that has caused, we’re going to have to reconvene the task force and decide how information for a public clarification (on the BOLO) will be crafted.”

Wohlers declined to confirm any details related to the BOLO and instead cautioned the public against taking the description “as solid gospel,” meaning that details in any investigation can change rapidly. He maintained that the department does not believe the community at-large is at risk, despite the details reported by broadcast networks.

A statement from Maggie’s family via Ellen Stoddard-Keyes:
I'm sharing a letter from the family of Maggie Long. This is beautifully written with so much love. Lynna and Connie care about the Bailey community, and especially Maggie's classmates, and encourage people to use the services available. #BaileyStrong #ColoradoCrisisServices

“The fear of death takes away the joy of living.”

Our beloved sister, daughter, granddaughter, cousin, niece, friend, and classmate, Maggie was a joy in all our lives. As many of you are aware, on the night of Friday, December 1, 2017 Maggie moved on from this world.

Our hearts are broken, and this loss has been especially significant knowing the impact that our Maggie had on this small mountain community. We thank everyone in Bailey as well as those in communities near and far that Maggie’s life has touched for their support and love shared.

Our family continues to work with Park County Sheriff’s Office and extended agencies; we want to thank them for their tremendous efforts. We are all committed to seeking justice for Maggie.

To the Bailey community, please report any suspicious vehicles, individuals or activities along County Road 43 in Bailey, CO on December 1, 2017 to the investigative tip line at: (303) 239-4243.

To those who have respected our privacy and will continue to respect our privacy as we mourn, we are grateful. In the coming days, we will have arrangements for a celebration of life for Maggie and will make announcements as those plans are finalized.

Thank you everyone for sharing your strength and kind thoughts with us,
The Long Family

UPDATE in the #MaggieLong case: I can confirm that both the ATF and the FBI are involved and assisting @parkcosheriff and CBI in the investigation.

Also, apparently lying to the public/media by deliberately sharing false information is not only perfectly acceptable, but "standard practice" as part of a "cat-and-mouse game" w/ suspects, per Undersheriff Dave Wohlers.


(highlighting is my own - SC)

Regardless of what law enforcement says, regardless of whether it's supposedly done to protect the integrity of an investigation, LYING to the public and/or media IS NOT OKAY.

Also, please consider donating to the @gofundme that's been launched to help #MaggieLong's family with her memorial service. Any excess funds will be donated to the Venue Theatre in Conifer where Maggie was very involved. www.gofundme.com/maggielongmemorial

A ray of sunshine gone too soon
Dear Maggie,
I didn’t know you, but, by all accounts, you were a ray of sunshine. That’s obvious.
The social media posts that popped up in the days after your disappearance and those that somberly appeared last Thursday after the Park County Sheriff’s Office confirmed your passing characterized the person you truly were to friends and family.

There is no possible way to list all those who you’ve meant so much to, but one said person is Shaely Folger. You and the 19-year-old sophomore at the University of Colorado Denver had known each other for 14 years. Shaely may have graduated from Platte Canyon High School in 2016, but that didn’t deter a friendship that has lasted since you were students at Deer Creek Elementary and later Fitzsimmons Middle School.

You grew up together in Bailey. You’ve been a part of each other’s lives forever.
Shaely and I exchanged messages last week, and she told me about your friendship and just what you meant to her.
