VAIL, Colorado – Human remains found in Eagle County may be related to a serial killing investigation, authorities say.

“There were remains found in Eagle County yesterday,” FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright said today. The FBI is assisting in a multistate investigation of murders that may have been committed by Scott Lee Kimball, 42, who has not yet been charged with any murders but is serving a 48-year sentence as a habitual criminal.

A source close to the investigation who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to provide details said the remains are believed to be those of Terry Kimball, 60, Scott Kimball’s uncle.

The remains were found in a remote area of Vail Pass, Wright said.

Authorities believe Kimball is responsible for the disappearances of Terry Kimball and three women. He has provided information to investigators about where the bodies might be found.
