Body found near Gypsum

GYPSUM — Police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found south of Gypsum on Friday morning.

The body was found about 15 miles up Gypsum Creek Road, said Jessie Mosher of the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office.

The manner of death was not released due to the fact that it is an open investigation, Mosher said. Eagle County Coroner Kara Bettis did not release any additional information about the person found dead, saying the next of kin had not yet been notified.

Mosher said the deceased person was an “older” woman.

An autopsy will be performed Saturday, Mosher said.
