Riffe Lake Body

Posted on 30th July 2010 at 08:18

The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office now says that the body found yesterday in Riffe Lake may be that of a many who was wanted in Colorado on a murder charge. Commander Steve Aust says that a recreational boater found the badly-decomposed body at about 6 pm yesterday. A further examination of the area turned up a backpack next to the body, containing the ID of a 49 year-old man from Denver. Further checking shows that the man’s car was found at the Blue Lake Campground near Randle back on April 26th, but the man was never found. The car was impounded. Authorities in Denver say that the man was wanted in connection with the murder of his girlfriend in March of this year. Lewis County authorities are still working to confirm the man’s identity.
