GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors and investigators in the case of Paige Birgfeld will present new evidence to a board of Colorado Bureau of Investigation officials in September.

The investigation will consist of a one day presentation from prosecutors and investigators to the board of cold-case experts, in which authorities will present new information to be considered in the case.

DNA tests confirmed that human remains found in 2012 were Birgfeld's, and although authorities consider her death a homicide they have been unable to determine how she died.

In 2007 Birgfeld disappeared from her double life as a devoted mother and escort for hire, and although police say they have a suspect who was a client of Birgfeld's services no arrests have been made.

Assistant District Attorney Rich Tuttle says, "We are at a point in the investigation where we thought it would be a good idea to have a fresh set of eyes look at the investigation and some experienced prosecutors and investigators around the state." Prosecutors also say it doesn't mean the investigation is stalled.
