Alamosa, Colo. (AP) Alamosa County authorities say a hiker discovered human remains in shallow grave in the vicinity of Great Sand Dunes National Park.
Sheriff Dave Stong said Monday the remains were found on private property on Sept. 10. Stong says it's unclear whether the body was a homicide or suicide victim or had been buried by family.
