GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - 11 News has been receiving calls and emails from viewers wondering what’s going on with the investigation into 23-year-old Dannah Foster’s death.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office says it’s waiting to make its final ruling until the Coroner concludes his investigation and toxicology reports are still needed.

Dannah’s husband, James Foster, sent 11 News an email letting us know last week he was called back into the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office by investigators to take a voluntary polygraph, which he says he was told over the phone he passed.

James says he was told by the investigator that after passing the test that unless something ‘odd’ comes back on in the toxicology reports, foul play has essentially been ruled out by the Sheriff’s Office and the Coroner.

Mesa County Sheriff’s Office officials say they can’t comment on an active investigation.

Dannah’s body was found at the bottom of a cliff in the Knowles Canyon Overlook area last month by Search and Rescue crews. She had been camping with her husband and two friends.

11 News will bring you additional information as it becomes available.
