    100 years from now, it won't matter what kind of car you drove or how big your house was. What will matter is that you were important in the eyes of a child.

    Police do not yet know a cause of death or if the toddler is a male or a female. They have not released any information at this point as to how long the body has been there.

    The owner of the home has been notified. Authorities tell 11 News that there are no "missing persons" in Monument right now.

    Neighbors tell 11 News that the house has been vacant for three months. Neighbors say that before the house was vacant, it was rented by a lot of "partiers." The house is also listed on line as being for sale.

    Still no news on who this might be or how long this baby was stuffed in the crawl space. Very sad that nobody has noticed this child is missing. I mean, obviously the parent/s are behind this, but what about everyone else? Is there no one who had a friend with a baby that suddenly doesn't have one? What about the rest of the family? Daycare? Tragic to think a parent can dispose of their child and almost get away with it!

    Update:

    Authorities say they are looking for the people who last resided at the home and trying to find out if they had a child.

    Our partners at the Denver Post say the body appeared to have been "well-hidden" and could have been there a while.

    Shirk says there are no missing-child cases in Monument.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Prospective buyers interested in a duplex in Monument may have walked a few feet above the decaying body of a dead child in a flooded crawl space.

    "The homicide of a child is one of the most difficult and horrific crimes that law enforcement responds to," Shirk said. "We are all parents and are deeply saddened by this event."

    "How in the world could a child be down there?" Longfield said. "If there is a missing child, someone would report it. Children don't go missing without someone saying something."

    One of the comments on here claims to have heard from a person who found the child that it was in two garbage bags and a burlap sack.

    Wow she was 7 to 10 years old. Not a toddler after all.

    From the article just posted:

    The body found Friday in the basement of a Monument house belonged to a small, 7-10 year old girl, according to preliminary autopsy results released Monday.

    Rest in peace, honey.

    Monument police said an autopsy was scheduled for yesterday, but they’re still waiting on the results from the El Paso County coroner’s office.
    7NEWS asked why it seemed to be taking a while to get the results.

    "I don’t know that this is unusual at all. I know they have a number of things they have to do with an autopsy. We may have the results on Monday, I don’t know," said Monument Police Chief Jacob Shirk.

    snip

    Monument police are getting help from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office as they investigate this death as a homicide.

    "Monument is a small department. I only have 13 commissioned officers. I’ve sent El Paso County our only detective who’s working hand in hand on this case. That’s one of the concerns we have, that these cases become very manpower intensive," Shirk said.

    Shirk said some of the past tenants and owners of the home are out of state. So, it has taken some time to contact people for questioning.

    Neighbors told 7NEWS the house has seen a constant turn over of tenants.

    The owner of the property had put the home up for sale recently. It was temporarily taken off the market on Sunday.

    7NEWS made numerous attempts to reach the owner of the property, who lives in Arizona, but he did not return phone calls.

    " An autopsy on the remains of a child's body found in the basement of an empty home in Monument revealed it was that of a 7- to 10-year-old girl of unknown race."


    "Neighbors told 7NEWS over the weekend that they remember a family living in the house about three years ago. They said a 6-year-old girl disappeared and the family told them the girl had moved back to New Jersey to live with her aunt."

    Saying a presser but didn't see time.

    "Neighbors told 7NEWS over the weekend that they remember a family living in the house about three years ago. They said a 6-year-old girl disappeared and the family told them the girl had moved back to New Jersey to live with her aunt."
    THREE YEARS ago?!? Was there no other friends or family who questioned this little girls whereabouts? How very sad.

    Our local news just had a neighbor on who said the family of the girl who suddenly disappeared referred to her as their "problem child". I pray they can track these people down quick.

    Neighbors told 7NEWS over the weekend that they remember a family with a little girl living in the house about a year and half ago. They said the 6-year-old girl disappeared one day and the family told them she had moved back to New Jersey to live with her aunt.

    Another neighbor said others had called police before about possible abuse at the home.

    "I was even there when police were called. At one point, we talked to (the parents) and they said she was fine," said neighbor Kristin McCollam. "I have four kids so to me it's heartbreaking that anyone could even do that to a child."

    Monument police Chief Jacob Shirk said he can't say yet whether police visited the home in the past, but a spokeswoman with the Department of Human Services confirmed to 7NEWS that department officials had contacted that particular family before.

    Gabrielle Bearsheart's daughter used to play with the girl who lived in the house. She said she too thinks the body belongs to the girl her daughter played with, but she's hoping it's not.
