    CO - Kathy Fortner, 49, found murdered, Mesa County, 1 July 2013

    Body Found Outside of Colorado National Monument


    FRUITA, Colo. - Visitors at the Colorado National Monument made a grisly discovery Tuesday afternoon.

    Authorities with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office say before 12:30 p.m. a group of visitors were driving by the National Monument and pulled over to take a picture with a sign when they noticed a woman's body laying in the grassy area near the road.

    SNIPPED.....................

    It was a nice summer day to explore and visitors were busy snapping photos when they noticed something unusual.

    "My understanding of how they found the body is they stopped to take a picture of the entrance sign to the Colorado National Monument and saw it, they just happened to stumble across it and called us immediately."

    For now the death remains a mystery

    According to what KKCO 11 News crews on scene have heard from Sheriff's Department representatives, the woman was in her mid-20s. She was found near the west entrance to Colorado National Monument, on the north side of Rimrock Dr. by a group of tourists, 300 to 400 feet north of the West Gate.

    The sheriff's office is currently working to piece together a timeline and the events surrounding her death. Details of this investigation will not be released at this time," Deputy Carnes said.

    Anybody who noticed anything suspicious near the west entrance of the monument between Monday night and Tuesday morning is asked to call the Mesa County Sheriff's Office at (970) 244-3263.

    Authorities will be reviewing security cameras placed throughout the park and they're also using a remote controlled helicopter to survey the area.

    One of the guys responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing was a Fortner, I believe.

    Correction: the Oklahoma City guy was Michael Fortier, not Fortner.

    Close but no. It was Fortier. I believe that is the spelling. I believe his first name is Michael.
