    CO-Paige Birgfield Missing since June 2007 COLORADO

    Paige Birgfield has been missing since 30th 2007
    Pagie Birgfield was a single mother of 3 leading a double life.

    Her car was found burn out in a car park

    There is a POI in the case but nothing further has developed from what I an see.

    Here is the AMW story http://www.amw.com/missing_persons/brief.cfm?id=46470

    Here is about the POI

    And here is something I find really sad http://patbrownprofiling.blogspot.co...f-day-yes.html

    Where basically its said she deserved what she got. And Yeah I call a spade a spade to0 ( the person says everyone should get real and call a spade a spade in regards to Paiges double life)

    Whether someone worked as a escort or added in extras that DOESN'T give anyone the right to take away their life by murdering them.

    Some of the articles say she feared her ex husband as well.

    Anyone know anything about this case ?

    Paige's story just aired again.
    So, I am just getting acquainted with the facts.
    It seems the mechanic is the poi.
    But there is not enough evidence to arrest him.
    District attorney says Paige's case will
    probably not be on grand jury agenda this year

    It would be good to see a google map
    of Paige's home, ex husband #1 home,
    where items were found on route 50
    and mechanics home and job site.

    MIssing money alleged in case

    By PAUL SHOCKLEY/The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel

    Thursday, May 14, 2009

    Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey on Thursday said he welcomed FBI scrutiny of his agency’s handling of money evidence in the 2007 disappearance of Paige Birgfeld.

    The Sheriff’s Department found itself scrambling after Birgfeld’s father, Frank Birgfeld, sent e-mails to several media outlets announcing he had asked the FBI’s Public Corruption Unit in Denver to investigate “missing money” in the investigation.

    “I told (FBI), ‘Please look at this,’ ” Hilkey said. “We want to be as transparent as possible. We’ve got $50 seized from a lock box, which Frank already knew about. No other money has been seized in this investigation.”

    At the crux of Frank Birgfeld’s complaints were reports aired last June on the CBS program “48 Hours.”

    “Contained therein was a statement by an informant, described as a ‘contact close to the ...

    Bone in murder probe 'unidentifiable,' cops say

    Saturday, June 27, 2009

    Nearly a year after a hiker in Utah stumbled upon it, a small piece of human skull that piqued the interest of investigators looking into Paige Birgfeld’s disappearance remains a mystery.

    But while questions remain about the roughly silver-dollar-sized bone, Grand County (Utah) Sheriff James Nyland said he’s confident about one thing: who it didn’t belong to.

    “It didn’t appear to be recent enough to be from any of these homicides,” said Nyland, referring to Birgfeld’s case and the murder of Leann Emry, a Washington woman whose partial remains were found in March near Moab. Today marks two years since Birgfeld was last seen alive.

    Birgfeld and MSCO at odds

    Posted: June 4, 2009 10:23 PM MDT

    Updated: June 8, 2009 12:05 PM MDT

    GRAND JUNCTION (KJCT) -- Request denied. Tension is building between the Mesa County Sheriffs Office and the family of a missing Grand Junction woman.

    Frank Birgfeld, father of missing mom of three Paige Birgfeld, asked to have the Mesa County Sheriffs Office removed from the investigation; that won't happen, at least right now.

    In mid-May Mr. Birgfeld asked the Sheriff's Office to transfer the investigation to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Birgfeld is concerned tens of thousands of dollars were illegally taken from his daughters' home after the investigation began.

    It's sad that it took them a year to say that the bones found in Utah didn't belong to any recent missing persons - they were too old. And glad to see several readers bumping on the 2nd anniversary of her disappearance.

    It is my understanding that the missing money was not reward money but money that Paige would keep in her home. Apparentley in the thousands of dollars because of the type of work she did on the side. Her father Frank lodge a complaint due to some sort of "informant" that this money had been taken by some one or some persons when the Sheriffs office searched the home of Paige. Here is in part some of the article:

    At the crux of Frank Birgfeld’s complaints were reports aired last June on the CBS program “48 Hours.”

    “Contained therein was a statement by an informant, described as a ‘contact close to the investigation,’ who reported ‘that investigators discovered a large amount of cash in Paige’s home — tens of thousands of dollars,” Birgfeld wrote. “It has been established that Paige operated with substantial amounts of cash not deposited into a bank account. The monies were very likely hidden in her Grand Junction residence.”


    http://www.gjsentinel.com/hp/content...ld_letter.html


    I know the feeling you describe about the ex. I am speaking of her second ex husband R Dixon not the first. There was alot going on with this guy when he was married to Paige. Here is an article from CNN describing him..there are more:
    ----------------

    Keith Morrison, Dateline NBC: And nothing.

    Frank Birgfield: We've looked in very vast, open areas. We've looked on top of the river, and we've looked under the river. And we have not found her.

    Special dog teams sniffed along the highway leading down to the riverbed. Rescue divers searched underwater, but found no trace.

    With the trail growing cold, police turned their attention to Paige’s second ex-husband, Rob Dixon, the father of her three children. They’d been divorced for a year, and Dixon now lived in Philadelphia.

    But people here in Grand Junction certainly remembered Dixon. And not necessarily fondly.

    Paige's Parents: Rob was a guy who showed up in town and made a splash.

    Paige’s parents knew the story all too well. How Rob Dixon had come into a huge family fortune. How he moved to Grand Junction, bought the big house, filled its garage with exotic sports cars. How he went through his money in a hurry.

    Paige's Parents: I've seen where in a deposition he's admitted he lost over $10 million.

    He went bankrupt, eventually.

    But along the way, Paige’s parents heard, their son-in-law got involved with the local fire department as a board member and benefactor.

    Paige's Parents: The first big gift was a camera that fits onto helmets. And he gave away -- the paper reported $2.8 million of those cameras.


    And then, about the time Paige’s parents heard that her marriage was going south, so did her husband's "gifts" to the fire department.

    Paige's Parents: Well, apparently it turned out that he hadn't purchased them. He had only rented them. And so when the money was dissipated, the rent came due without the resources to pay it.

    Paige's Parents: And so he was in the paper with frequency because of these fire department matters. He was actually made the News Person of the year.

    Stanley Hilkey: Yeah, he did have a reputation in Grand Junction, in Mesa County. Colorful character. And certainly was a person that-- she-- one of the nature of anybody being an ex-husband or having that kind of relationship is a person that is included in any kind of investigation like that.

    Besides, as the sheriff soon discovered, Dixon's legal troubles had not been confined to financial issues.

    Stanley Hilkey: I think Mr. Dixon even had been arrested a couple of times.

    Keith Morrison: For what?

    Stanley Hilkey: For a domestic violence type, harassment type, case.

    To outsiders, Paige and Rob seemed happy. And very successful, living in that spacious new home.

    But inside, as marriages so often are, it was a different thing altogether.

    At least, according to Paige's parents.

    Paige's Parents: They had a troubled marriage from almost the beginning. I mean Rob is the guy who I think of as kind of a Jekyll and Hyde.

    911 Operator: 9-1-1, where is your emergency?

    Paige Birgfield: My husband and I were in a fight, and he was supposed to watch my children while I went to work...

    Paige called 911 in the fall of 2004.

    (911 call)

    Paige Birgfield: And as I was leaving, he didn't seem to be OK so I said I was just going to take the children with me so he didn't have to deal with it. But he wanted the children to stay with him, and he said that I'd come home and find them all murdered.

    She was terrified, she said, that Dixon would hurt the children.

    Police were dispatched.

    And when they arrived?

    Dixon was fine, they decided. No threat to the children, or himself or anyone else.

    No charges.

    Then, less than a year later, after a possibly violent quarrel, Dixon was arrested on suspicion of third-degree assault and misdemeanor child abuse. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of harassment and got a deferred sentence. And then later, the entire case was dismissed.

    But Paige’s friends claimed that she was afraid of her husband.

    Andrea Land: Incidents where her ex-husband was very-- had a very angry temper, easily inflamed by the kids doing normal kid stuff. He would break furniture and break doors


    When they finally divorced, Dixon moved clear across the country and Paige got the children, but worried a lot, said her parents, about retaining full custody.

    Paige's Parents: Quite honestly, she was afraid. She did not want the chance that he might have part custody of the children. She would rather that he see the children when she was around.

    Even though Dixon only flew west to visit occasionally, her friends say Paige seemed terrified of him, that she posted a warning on a website related to one of her businesses.

    "My children would ask me if Dad was going to kill me."

    She was worried, she wrote, about Dixon’s apparent plan to move back to Colorado.

    My kids and I have been so happy and free and safe since their dad moved 2000 miles away! As always, he couldn't hold on to his job, and has found a new one in Durango, which is about 3 hours away in the summertime. I’m thinking this is a bit close for my comfort.

    A few months after she posted that, Paige vanished

    Here is a little more info in regards to the mechanic (POI) Ralph L. Jones:

    Rob Dixon is Paige's ex-husband. Rob Dixon's lawyer, Scott Robinson, released this statement, "Rob Dixon does not and has never known Lester Jones, their paths have never crossed and anyone who says the two of them are aquatinted is not telling the truth".

    On October 2nd of last year, deputies named Lester Ralph Jones the sole suspect.

    "He was calling her all the time, wanting to go out with her.. wanting to get together. She wasn't comfortable around him, she had some threatening feelings," Carol said. Carol remembers a conversation with Paige about Paige's ex-husband Rob. "One of his close friends told her about six months before she disappeared that knowing Rob one of these days he's going to make you disappear, so watch your back," she said.

    Carol says the friend that told Paige this was Lester Ralph Jones. "She was afraid of that, but she said, 'I couldn't live my life in fear, so I just have to continue on." Stan Hilkey Mesa County Sheriff says, "He is someone clearly on our radar screen." Jones' house has been searched several times by investigators. Several items have been confiscated as evidence.


    "We're living a parents worst nightmare," said Frank Birgfeld, Paige's father. His daughter is still missing, and the case still not solved. "We want to present our district attorney a case that is solvable and provable to a jury, so the successful prosecution of holding someone accountable," said Hilkey.


    Carol says she would like to know what happened to her friend, and is haunted by a conversation she had with Paige just before she went missing. "She was not comfortable regarding her ex-husband and Lester Ralph Jones, he's a dangerous man," Carol said.

    Ex-Con Named 'Person of Interest' in Missing Mom Case

    Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hikley has said their investigation was focusing on the escort service, Models, Inc. Sources told MyFoxColorado.com that Jones was a client of the escort service.

    Lester Ralph Jones, a repairman at an RV company in Grand Junction, has a history of domestic violence. In 1999, Jones reportedly forced his former wife's car off the road, kindapped her at gunpoint, and fired shots at the male passenger in the car, MyFOXColorado.com reported. Jones pleaded guilty to assault with a deadly weapon in the heat of passion and felony menacing, and served five years in prison, according to the Rocky Mountain News
