    Maggie Long (17) was found dead inside her burned out home



    http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news...-disappearance


    Deputies are asking for your help to find a Park County teen who has been missing since Friday, about the same time her home was damaged from a fire which deputies believe was intentionally set.

    17-year-old Maggie Long?s family told Park County Sheriff?s Office deputies they became concerned after she did not go to a concert at Platte Canyon High School, where the teen is a senior. Park County Undersheriff Dave Wohlers told Denver7 sheriff?s investigators, fire officials and Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents investigated the scene of the suspected arson at the family home located at 3700 County Road 43 on Saturday.

    Wohlers told Denver7 they do not have search parties out looking for Long, adding they?re also working to see if there?s a connection between her disappearance and the family home fire.

    Deputies are focusing on the teen?s communications from after school ? approximately at around 2:30 p.m. ? until about 8 p.m. Friday.

    ?If you have any contact, please reach out. If you have heard anything strange or seen anything out of the ordinary, it might be a significant detail. Please help us to fill in the gap,? Wohlers said.

    If you have any information about Long?s whereabouts, you are asked to call the Park County Sheriff?s substation number (303) 838-4441.

    Gag order issued>!?!

    http://www.9news.com/news/local/gag-...iday/496777204

    A judge has ordered that information in the case of a missing teen not be released by law enforcement or several other agencies any longer.

    The Park County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook that a judge granted a gag order on Monday in the case of Maggie Long, a 17-year-old girl who has not been seen since Dec. 1.

    That day, a fire ravaged the teen's home on County Road 43. Investigators say they believe the fire, which caused significant damage to her home, was arson.

    The gag order prohibits the release of any information about the case by first responders, law enforcement, court personnel, the coroner's office, the district attorney's office or anyone associated with these agencies.

    The order will remain, it states, until "such a time as it is determined that the release of the information would no longer affect the integrity of the on-going investigatuon."

    The request for a gag order was made by the district attorney’s office and signed by Judge Stephen Groome.

    The circumstances surrounding the fire are still unclear more than three days later. The day after the fire, Park County authorities hadn't asked for any search party volunteers.

    The Park County Sheriff’s Office is still asking anyone with information about this case to contact the investigative tip line at 303-239-4243.

    Missing 17-year-old Bailey girl Maggie Long found dead inside of burned home, sheriff says

    Maggie Long, the 17-year-old reported missing last Friday around the same time a fire burned her home, was discovered dead inside of the home, the Park County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.

    Mystery has surrounded the case since Long went missing Friday. She was supposed to go to a concert Friday night at Platte Valley High School, Park County Undersheriff Dave Wohlers told Denver7, but never showed up. Her sister started posting on Facebook that Maggie was missing.

    On Saturday, the sheriff’s office said it was “working a crime scene” off of County Road 43, but said no search parties were being organized to look for Long.

    On Sunday morning, the sheriff’s office posted a message to Facebook: “Due to the serious nature of this investigation we ask that you keep the Long Family in your prayers. We are not able to release any further information at this time.”

    And on Sunday night, the sheriff’s office said it was “working on an active arson investigation” and said: “We do not believe there is any risk to the public. We continue to ask for prayers for the Long family.”

    On Monday, a judge issued a gag order in the case preventing authorities from discussing it any further.

    But Thursday, the sheriff’s office said remains found inside the family’s home off County Road 43 in Bailey were that of the 17-year-old girl.

    The sheriff’s office says it has formed a task force specifically dedicated to the case that involves federal, state and local authorities.

    “This task force will not rest until justice is obtained for Maggie and the Long family,” Sheriff Fred Wegener said Friday. “All law enforcement resources available will be devoted to bringing this investigation to a successful outcome.”

    The sheriff’s office is asking anyone who witnessed any suspicious people, vehicles or activities in the area on Dec. 1 to contact the investigative tip line at 303-239-4243.

    Investigators say they believe the fire was intentionally set, and in a news release Thursday, said they consider Long’s death a homicide.

    At this point, no one has been taken into custody.
    Thursday, the Park County Sheriff’s Office says a task force with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies involved has been “formed for the sole purpose of bringing any individual involved in the Maggie Long homicide to justice.”

    To prevent further information being released, thereby giving investigators who are still interviewing suspects an outline of what the people know already. That way if something new/unreleased comes out, they found a potential suspect/new direction for the investigation.

    And this family lost not only their daughter, but their home and all the memories contained within. How fucking sad

    I hope they catch the motherfucker who did this and bury them up to their neck in molten lava.
    Don't like what I have to say? I respect that. Now go fuck yourself.

    They issues a BOLO but it was not intended for the public, only law enforcement.

    http://www.canyoncourier.com/content...ggie-long-case

    Snipped:
    ?We did issue a BOLO, but it was not intended for public consumption,? said Undersheriff Dave Wohlers. ?It was supposed to go out through a confidential law enforcement source. ? I can?t confirm what (the news stations) are reporting ? it?s really quite disruptive to our investigation. Because of the problems that has caused, we?re going to have to reconvene the task force and decide how information for a public clarification (on the BOLO) will be crafted.?

    Thursday evening, KMGH-TV ? Denver 7 ? reported that the sheriff?s office was looking for ?a man in his 20s with possible burn marks on his arms.? The station also reported that the suspect was armed and last seen driving a minivan.

    Midday Friday, KCNC-TV ? Denver?s CBS affiliate ? reported further details, including identifying information about the van the suspect is alleged to be driving, the direction he was last seen driving, and information about firearms and ammunition the suspect is believed to be carrying.

    This whole thing is SOOOOOOOO weird. Usually I can kinda put together what happened, but there is some fuckery going on here.

    This article is apparently about Maggie's sister -

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/colorad...minous-letter/

    One of the hostages, Lynna Long, told the Rocky Mountain News that she was groped above the waist but believes Emily "got it worse." She said she was afraid to look, "But you could hear Emily saying, 'No. Please don't."'

    The newspaper said Lynna and her mother had agreed to allow Lynna to be identified by name. The family told The Associated Press that the girl was not immediately available Friday.

    Hi everyone! I am a longtime lurker but I finally made an account for this case. The town I grew up in is about 15 minutes away from Maggie's high school and my parents still live there so this is a local one for me! Platte Canyon High School is in the town of Bailey and back in 2006 a man went into the school and held six female students hostage for several hours. I was in elementary school at the time and all of the schools in the area were on lock down because of it. He killed one of the girls, Emily Keyes, and then himself. Apparently Maggie Long's older sister was one of the five surviving hostages. A family friend of the Long family, Ellen Stoddard-Keyes, released a statement on behalf of the Long family. Based on the last name I am assume that Ellen is related to Emily Keyes so it seems that the two families are close.

    [/URL]

    The case in 2006 and this one are both very unusual for the area and I just feel awful for this family. It has been very confusing so far and the gag order and lack of information to the public is not helping anything. My parents and friends have gotten more information from facebook posts from the Long family than the news. My mom initially heard that Maggie was missing from a post on facebook and my parents started following the case then. She had been apart of a group planning a concert event at her school on December 1st, the day she went missing. She had left Platte Canyon High School to get something from her house and when she did not return it raised concern and there were missing person flyers all over facebook with her picture. However at 10:15pm on December 1st there was a news article saying that they were investigating a fire in her family home but that she was still missing. There was little to no information about Maggie or the house fire for the next week until the 9th where it was announced they found Maggie's body in the burnt home, even though they initially said there was no one in the house during the fire. Additionally, a Be On the Look Out was released for: " a white male in his 20s who may be heavily armed with weapons and ammunition. He may be driving a late model ’90s to 2000 light-colored minivan". Apparently this BOLO was not supposed to be publicized and was intended to be just for law enforcement, but they also have not said whether there is a threat to the public or not.

    There have been three cases recently where women died from what the police call homicide. No arrests. But the cops in each case say they were all isolated incidents? Maggie long, Natalie Bollinger and Kathleen west.

    I think it's pretty obvious Katleen was most likely killed by her husband.

    Investigators in the case of a teenage girl from Bailey who was found dead in her burned home are requesting to keep the autopsy report private to protect the investigation.
    Authorities want to prevent the autopsy report from being made public because they fear it will compromise the investigation.

    “They’re trying to work on the investigation and they’re worried about compromising the investigation by releasing the information in the autopsy report to the public,” an official with the Park County Coroner’s Office said Wednesday.

    “They are requesting a 30-day delay on the report at which point officials will see if investigators feel comfortable releasing the information or a redacted version of the information to the public.”

    This is crazy. No updates......nothing. *crickets*

    Look at the agencies involved with her case

    Park County sheriff’s deputies along with agents with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are hoping the money will lead to a killer or killers.

    I was coming to post a lot of stuff was stolen from her home - it's mentioned in bermstalker's link, but it's sort of a throwaway line, where 9News made it out to be something huge:

    The Park County Sheriff’s Office released a sketch Friday morning of a man seen at the house where 17-year-old Maggie Long was found dead.

    In a Facebook post, the sheriff's office said that Long was killed December 1, sometime between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. inside a home located on County Road 43 in Bailey.

    Investigators working on the murder of Maggie Long in Bailey are looking into a similar crime that happened recently in Missouri.

    Earlier this week a 20-year-old woman was set on fire after suspects broke into her home in Johnson County, Missouri, which is southeast of Kansas City. She survived the attack and two men are in custody.

    People in Bailey are talking and asking questions because of the similarities of one of the suspects arrested and the sketch of the person of interest in the Park County, Colorado
    http://www.kansascity.com/news/local...212554054.html

    Two men are behind bars in northwest Missouri after authorities say they tried to burglarize a home and set fire to a woman inside after she reportedly refused to give them the combination to a gun safe.

    Prosecutors have charged Vincent P. Rist, 22, of Warrensburg, and Antonio D. Bowen, 24, of Kansas City, with first-degree assault, burglary, robbery, arson and three counts of armed criminal action.

    The woman, a 20-year-old from Centerview, was taken to a burn unit with first-, second- and third-degree burns covering 30 percent of her body.

    Johnson County deputies were called to the home Sunday after receiving a report of an assault and fire.

    Court records said Rist and Bowen broke into the house, bound the woman's hands and mouth with tape and took various items, including a shotgun.

    The woman told authorities the men also struck her in the head with a lamp and poured gasoline on her body.

    They told her they would set her on fire if she didn't give them the combination to a gun safe in the home, court records said.

    She refused.

    That's when Rist allegedly ignited the gasoline and told the woman "then burn with the f****** house."

    Court records said the woman was able to escape and extinguish herself. She remained in the hospital on Tuesday, according to WDAF.

    The house burned to the ground.

    Rist and Bowen were arrested later that Sunday, and remain in custody at the Johnson County jail with bonds set at $250,000, cash only.

    A court date has not yet been scheduled in their cases.

    Court records indicated Bowen pleaded guilty in 2011 to second-degree burglary in Jackson County, and in 2014, pleaded guilty in federal court to possessing a gun as a convicted felon.

    Man, what monsters! I really hope they can positively tie this to the Maggie Long case and provide some closure in that case and lock these assholes up and throw away the key!

    The investigation into the Maggie Long murder case is moving forward in a big way based on a tip the task force received about a month ago, according to Park County Detective Sgt. Greg Jones.

    ?We received a call three or four weeks ago from an individual that thought their information wasn't important, and it was actually huge,? he said in a phone call Thursday. ? ? We feel we're making good progress based on that tip that just came in, so I want to re-emphasize that any information is valuable ? no matter how small or insignificant you think it is.?

    Though Jones declined to specify what the tip was, who it came from or where it has led law enforcement officials, he said the information was something investigators could've used seven months ago.

    This comes on the heels of investigators clearing all possible connections to a similar incident in rural Missouri earlier this month after it was established that the suspects weren't in Colorado at the time of Long's murder last December.

    According to Jones, while investigators were optimistic about the case ? in which two men were arrested June 3 on suspicion of breaking into a home in Centerview, Mo., where they allegedly bound and set a 20-year-old woman on fire after she refused to give them the combination to her gun safe ? neither man was in Colorado when Long was killed at her family's home in Bailey on Dec. 1.
