DENVER (AP) -- Pitkin County investigators are asking the public for help in finding the person or people who shot a man to death and dumped his body in the forest near Aspen 33 years ago.

Sheriff Joe DiSalvo says the remains of a man found in 1979 by mushroom pickers near Lenado are those of Donald Allison, who was a month shy of his 50th birthday. The Denver Post (http://bit.ly/PVTMdb ) tells us investigators from the coroner's and sheriff's offices relied on national databases of missing persons to help identify Allison, and the FBI recently confirmed the man's identity through fingerprint analysis.

DiSalvo says "even the smallest piece of information has the potential to solve this cold-case homicide."
