Paige Birgfeld case presented in Denver

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The Paige Birgfeld case has left local investigators clueless on what happened for years.

Local officials took her story to cold case experts in hopes that a fresh perspective could help them answer key questions about the murder mystery.

Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey, Assistant District Attorney Rich Tuttle and other Mesa County investigators joined 20 to 30 expert cold-case investigators from around the state in Denver on Thursday to present their findings on Birgfeld's disappearance.

"My educated guess is that they'll have some ideas that we think are well worth pursuing so there will be some additional investigative steps from here," Pete Hautzinger, District Attorney.

Hautzinger was briefed by the presenters and he said members asked a lot of questions throughout the presentation and believes it was a productive day.

The cold case experts will make suggestions to local investigators and Hautzinger said he expects a lot more time to pass before local authorities make any decisions on those suggestions.
