Foul play suspected in case of dismembered woman
WESTCLIFFE, Colo. – An autopsy of a woman found dismembered in rural Custer County last month suggests foul play.
Investigators orginally said the dismemberment was likely caused by animals. Custer County Sheriff Fred Jobe tells The Pueblo Chieftain that an autopsy shows that someone cut her up.
The dead woman hasn’t been identified. Jobe says that a lack of blood or other evidence where she was found indicates her body was dismembered elsewhere, with the remains left in a rural stretch near a county road.
Police say the woman had dark hair, was white or Hispanic in her 30s or 40s and was from 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tall and about 190 pounds. A passing motorist noticed her remains Nov. 24.
