Guessing you are local? Do you recall police taking voluntary dna samples? Did anyone ever find out who might have declined? Also - didn’t the police say the have some dna? if so shouldn’t we know if those two “suicide victims” are possible matches? So sorry- but a cold case like this hard to keep facts or tidbits straight... do you have insight?
Maggie Long's family to sell Park County home
Man. I couldn't even bring myself to finish the article or look at the pictures of the house. I saw the first one and my stomach turned.
I agree her poor parents no wonder they've never gone back there.
I just saw this. The task force web page seems to be changed around and it looks like they are now saying a young female might have been involved. There is not a sketch of this new suspect.
A fourth person may have been involved in the December 2017 killing of 17-year-old Maggie Long inside her Bailey home, according to a spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
A silhouette of that person was added to the Maggie Long Task Force website, which was created in January of this year to help generate new leads in the case.
"It could be a male or a female, but we believe there is possibly a fourth person that is either involved int he burglary on Dec. 1, 2017, or that might be a key witness that we would like to talk to," said FBI spokeswoman Amy Meyer.
Fourth person may have been involved in Maggie Long's murder
Dec. 1 marked two years since Maggie Long’s murder. A task force continues to work the case, but no arrests have been made and no suspects have been named.
“I listen to a lot of murder podcasts and like true crime stuff and I think that’s – we’re sitting here with you today because this is not a cold case,” Lynna Long said.
For sisters, two years still feels like yesterday.
“Having to deal day to day with not being able to talk to her, know how she’s doing or not being able to follow her on her journey through college or finding herself. That part sucks.” Connie Long said.
The Long family no longer lives in the home off County Road 43. It’s sat empty since that night in December 2017. The family has since left Bailey altogether.
“That time is passed and like her not being around anymore changes how I view Bailey as a place that I grew up because it doesn’t feel like the place I grew up anymore without that presence,” Lynna Long said.
Home lost its feeling, but Lynna and Connie Long find comfort in words their sister left behind.
“This the yearbook from her senior year,” Connie Long said. She opened the yearbook to a page dedicated to Maggie Long.
'This is not a cold case': Maggie Long's sisters not giving up two years after teen's murder
This case is just so sad. Clearly, whoever did it knew of the Longs in one way or another. Why kill Maggie? One reason could be they knew she could identify them or at least one of them. Of course, it was totally random that she went home from school at that exact moment. It's heartbreaking. I feel that it was an ex-employee, or someone linked to an employee that knew that the Longs had a lot of cash. Either that or the boarder/roomer that lived there or perhaps even someone from Maggie's high school. I'm sure the Longs network is large so maybe it will continue to take time to investigate all the possibilities. Was it a one-time hit, or have there been other (non-lethal) robberies in the area?
Still no arrest in Maggie Long murder
Reposting this article even though it's an old one because I feel like it has some details I'd forgotten that I think are worth reading again.
I am local, and yes, PCSO did obtain voluntary DNA samples from family members and associates of the Long family but would not comment as to why or if anyone declined. It is the running belief that the former sheriff botched the case pretty badly. At first we were all told she was missing. We offered to organize search parties. They told us no. No Amber alert, nothing. Then, a week later, they say they found her in the house. Then BOLO issued. Then they say that wasn’t meant for the public, but everything is fine, there’s no danger to the community. Blah blah blah. They clearly were not doing their best work. They released the home and property back to the family one day after the crime took place. It is notable that the ranch was gated, meaning one had to have access to enter. No explanation as to how/why multiple vehicles would’ve been used for a burglary. The male tenant (we know gender because of radio transmissions reviewed by editor of the flume) presumably has not been identified publicly out of fear/concern for his safety and well-being. Everything smells fishy; there are also a good number of RSOs in relation to the small population, but their DNA should be in the system. Lots of rumors swirl but nothing concrete. It is sad and infuriating at the same time. No one has been talking about the suicides being related to Maggie’s murder, at least not that I’ve heard. I don’t know these boys, but the violent behavior is concerning. Older vehicles, particularly trucks, are not uncommon here, as Bailey is a small community, but there are countless people passing through, as Bailey is right on highway 285, a major route from Denver down into New Mexico. I believe the recent uptick in tips was due to the podcast, which is great. Any news coverage is good. Please don’t forget. Please keep digging.
Someone sent this to me a while back. Interesting comparisons.
The Long's could have been aware of Maggie's death as early as 8.30 that evening. A CARE team was sent to the location around 9.00 that evening. I am confused about the several hours comment the sisters made. I saw this on a Facebook group dedicated to Maggie Long.
