From Reporter Matt Kroschel
Some Park County residents remain furious at the Sheriff’s Office for “lying” to them in the days following the murder of 17-year-old Maggie Long. The Sheriff admitted some mistakes were made. He says they are increasing the reward for information that leads to an arrest to $20,000

• Still no arrests in the case.

Guns, safe, jade figurines stolen from torched home where teen was found slain - Video

Park County’s sheriff and state and federal investigators appealed to the public Wednesday for information that might crack the Dec. 1 murder of a 17-year-old girl, acknowledging they have no strong suspects.

“We’re committed to finding the people responsible for taking the life of Maggie Long,” Sheriff Fred Wegener said at an afternoon news conference where photographs were made public showing a safe, two guns and jade figurines that were taken from the girl’s home the day she was killed.



Although the pictures were released, Wegener declined to release other information – including how Long was killed and whether she was sexually assaulted – because he said it could compromise the investigation.

Wegener was also at a loss to explain the assertion by his department two days after Long’s killing and a fire set in her home that no body had been found – “we made our comment, we’ll live with it,” he said.

Wegener said “an apparent burglary occurred” before the Long family’s home was set on fire, and also that there were items stolen from the home.

Camper elaborated, saying a green safe, some jade figurines, and two firearms – a Beretta 9mm handgun, and an “AK-47 style” of rifle – were stolen. He showed pictures of items similar to those that were taken.

An FBI official said there was a “high probability” that someone in the community had come into contact with the person or people involved in Long’s murder. All officials said there may be one person, or multiple people, responsible for her death.

The official said that the suspect might live in the community, and may be either following the case closely or seeming detached from their typical behavior and relationships.

He urged residents to report anything possibly-related to the case to the tip line established for the case, saying “no piece of information is too small.”

The officials said the investigation continued, and that the coroner’s report would remain under seal while the investigation is ongoing.

Law enforcement officials, in their first public address since confirming the death of Platte Canyon student Maggie Long at her family’s home in Bailey in December, have increased the reward being offered in the case to $20,000.

In addition, officials confirmed that a burglary took place the night she was killed. A safe, firearms and small jade statues were stolen from the home off Highway 43. Officials also clarified that the collection of DNA samples last month was not completed at random.

Though Wegener further relayed a timeline of the events, he dodged other questions about the investigation, including whether Long was sexually assaulted, whether the department thought multiple individuals were responsible for her death, whether the Long family had indicated the possibility that Long was killed by someone they knew, and more.

Wegener also offered little explanation for why his department initially lied to the public about a body being found at the scene, why the Sheriff’s Office still feels the community isn’t at risk despite the theft of weapons and ammunition, as well as why it took the department more than two months to address the public — stating only that investigators had a lot of information to sort through.
