Sketch released in Maggie Long murder investigation

Five months after Maggie Long was found murdered at her family's home in Bailey, investigators have released a sketch of an individual they say was seen at the home the day she died. According to a flier released Friday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and circulated by the Park County Sheriff's Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the individual is a light-complected male with short hair who may or may not have been driving an older model van or pickup truck.

FBI Special Agent Amy Sanders said that the individual pictured in the sketch is neither a suspect nor person of interest at this time, but rather someone who investigators are seeking more information about. Neither Sanders nor Park County Undersheriff Dave Wohlers would provide further details about the individual or the vehicles pictured on the flier on grounds that the investigation remains active and ongoing.

In addition to releasing the sketch, law enforcement officials have raised the reward offered in the case to $25,000 — a $5,000 increase since February.

Investigators in Maggie Long case say family home was targeted
Man described in sketch is same individual in BOLO

Nearly six months after 17-year-old Maggie Long was murdered at her family's home in Bailey, investigators are finally sharing more information about the case — specifically saying that the Long family home was targeted and that Long's murder was not part of a pattern of crimes occurring in neighboring counties or elsewhere.

In an interview with the Courier on Wednesday, Detective Sgt. Greg Jones — Park County’s lead detective on the investigative task force, which includes individuals from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) — said investigators believe the person or people responsible for Long’s death targeted the family's home when it was burglarized and burned Dec. 1, but have yet to narrow the scope of their investigation on a specific suspect or motive.

Both Wohlers and Jones said the absence of a crime pattern, as well as the belief that the Long home was targeted, are why they believe the community is not in any danger — even in light of the theft of firearms and ammunition from the Long residence.

While Jones and Wohlers declined to comment on the details of how Long was killed or the crime scene, Jones confirmed that the individual described in a sketch released by investigators May 4 is the same man described in the December BOLO.

Park County commissioners, coroner file complaint against Evergreen Newspapers
They are requesting an order barring public access to Long autopsy
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 at 6:31 pm

The Park County Board of Commissioners, acting by and through Park County coroner David Kintz Jr., has filed a legal complaint against the Canyon Courier's umbrella organization Evergreen Newspapers, as well as reporter Sal Christ and editor Michael Hicks, seeking to restrict access to Maggie Long's autopsy.

The complaint, filed in Park County District Court on Monday, seeks to legally bar the inspection and release of Long's autopsy on grounds that allowing public access to the files would “do substantial injury to the public interest by jeopardizing and hindering the investigation of her death.”

The complaint comes a month after Evergreen Newspapers sent letters of intent to sue the coroner, as well as 11th Judicial District Attorney Molly Chilson, over their failure to fulfill a Dec. 14, 2017, Colorado Open Records Act request for access to Long's autopsy. As the Courier previously reported, Kintz Jr. has repeatedly denied requests to release the autopsy since January at the request of Chilson.

Not entirely sure. According to a witness, there was a police vehicle and a couple of SUV-type vehicles at the home just after 8:50am this morning. A picture of the entrance of the driveway with vehicles parked there was posted in the Please Help Bring Justice For Maggie Long group this morning: www.facebook.com/groups/173318386587280/

Federal investigators working in conjunction with the task force investigating the Maggie Long murder case were on scene at the Long family residence in Bailey on Monday morning.
“We just had another set of detectives up there that were just doing a walkthrough,” said Park County Undersheriff Dave Wohlers. “ … Getting a different opinion from an outside jurisdiction.”

The investigative task force working the case is comprised of local, state and federal resources, including individuals from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

While it has been nearly a year since Long’s death, it remains unclear where the investigation stands or what progress has been made. In regards to new information, Wohlers said there was “nothing I can tell you about anyway, not at this point.”

Nearly one year later, still few answers in the death of 17-year-old Maggie Long

KUSA — Park County Sheriff-elect Tom McGraw said investigating who murdered 17-year-old Maggie Long nearly one year ago is one of his "top priorities."

It’s been nearly a year since the remains of Long were found inside her burned home in Bailey. In those 12 months, no suspects have been named in the case. Outgoing Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener also called the case priority No. 1 at the time.

McGraw said he plans to connect with other agencies that are working on it within two weeks of taking the reigns from Wegener and being sworn into the position Jan 8.

"Obviously what is going on is not working," McGraw told 9NEWS. "I have it as one of my top priorities."

He also said he has not yet been briefed on the status of the investigation.
