    news report with her two children speaking. It sounds like they didn't live with her but kept in touch.

    Hunting and fishing season is in full swing on the Northeastern Plains, if she has not run off, there is hope she will be found. I don't have a good feeling about this one...IMHO

    Teter is 5-4, about 105 pounds, with black hair and eyes and has a number of tattoos. She was last seen wearing a black tank top and black shorts.

    Sheriff's deputies searched an area Friday north of the Platte River east of Highway 52 to east of Dodd Bridge Road, south of Road Y. They searched field roads and unoccupied buildings and structures. It was unknown as of press time if their search turned up any clues.

    The body of a 37-year-old woman, who was reported missing last week, was found Wednesday afternoon in Morgan County.

    The death of Laurie Janae Teter is being investigated as a homicide, according to the Morgan County Sheriff's Office.

    The sheriff's office announced the discovery Wednesday on its Facebook page.

    Her body was found near the intersection of county roads U.5 and 24, northeast of Fort Morgan.

    She was last seen in the area "following a fight with her boyfriend," the sheriff's office said. The sheriff's office announced Teter as missing on Sept. 3.

    Still waiting to hear "cause of death". Morgan County does not have a good track record for solving murders, this is very concerning, I hope they get it right this time....IMHO

    One would hope an even average detective could clear this case. But looking in the news, it does not seem well-covered or generating much interest, IMO.

    This was a cousin of mine. I just got contacted by another cousin asking about her case. The general consensus is that the boyfriend killed her.
    Apparently she was named after my mother. Freaky

    Is there any particular reason why they were living in a tent out in the middle of a field ?

    Were they homeless or simply adventurous ?

    I agree this case is pretty easy to solve.
    The statements made by the boyfriend are absurd.

    Drugs don't make for a Smart Cover up.
    So hopefully even Morgan county can close this one.

    From last month:

    http://www.fortmorgantimes.com/fort-...ce=mostpopular

    Crone said the investigation into Laurie Teter's murder has taken up a significant amount of the sheriff's office's resources since September. He and the other officers on staff have spoken with several possible witnesses, but Crone said not all of those interviews were helpful.

    "We're dealing with a lot of people who have provided rumors and false information," he said. "We've been chasing down a lot of false leads... which, on a major case like this, is pretty common."

    In order to verify the information they receive, they have been searching through county records and hundreds of hours of surveillance footage from the area.

    From March:

    http://www.journal-advocate.com/ster...an-county-jail

    About six months after the body of 37-year-old Laurie Teter went missing, a Log Lane Village man is sitting in the Logan County Jail facing over half a dozen felony charges, including second degree murder...

    "Investigators pored over hours of surveillance video, conducted forensic examinations of cell phones and computers, and analyzed tens of thousands of pages of records. As part of those analyses, evidence of a sexual assault of a girl under the age of 15, along with enticement of a child by use of the Internet was discovered, leading to the other charges," the release stated.
    http://www.fortmorgantimes.com/fort-...e-teter-murder

    Robert Smith, age 37, was arrested at 200 Oak Street in Log Lane Village at 3 p.m. Tuesday on a Morgan County District Court warrant charging him with multiple felonies. They include:

    •Second-degree murder;

    •Attempting to influence a public servant;

    •Tampering with physical evidence;

    •Perjury in the first degree;

    •Sexual assault of a child by one in a position of trust;

    •Internet luring of a child with intent to exploit;

    •Enticement of a child.

    Murder charges dropped for Robert Smith

    http://www.fortmorgantimes.com/ci_30...d-robert-smith

    The Log Lane Village man charged with the death of Laurie Teter will be serving a 22-year prison sentence--but not for murder.

    Robert Smith, 37, who was arrested in March in connection with Teter's disappearance and death in September of 2015, pled guilty on Friday to first-degree assault, first-degree perjury and attempted sexual assault on a child. Chief District Judge Michael Singer sentenced him to 10 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections for assault and six years for each of the other crimes, to be served consecutively. The other charges for which Smith was arrested, including second-degree murder, were dropped.
    But during Smith's Friday hearing in Logan County District Court, Morgan County District Attorney Brittny Lewton, who represented the prosecution, said her side had not been able to prove that he was responsible for Teter's death. She said that because Teter's body had decomposed significantly when it was found, it was difficult for investigators to establish a cause of death or any other definitive evidence. She also said Teter and Smith lived a "dangerous, unhealthy lifestyle" that could have contributed to the former's disappearance and death. As a result, the investigation is still open.

    "We are still in the position that we do not know what happened to Miss Teter," Lewton said.
