About this Case:

The victim was last seen hitchhiking south from the town of Breckenridge. Ms. Schnee was last seen at approximately 4:45 P.M. on Wednesday January 6, 1982. Ms. Schnee's body was located 6 months after her disappearance/death on July 3, 1982 in rural Park County, Colorado approximately 20 miles south of Breckenridge. She was shot outside in a rural, isolated, mountain valley area where there would be no witnesses. It would have been dark, possibly snowing, and very cold (-20 degrees F). The death was due to loss of blood from a single gunshot wound to the back, and appeared to have occurred at the location where the body was found. The body was found face down in a small stream, fully clothed, but with clothing in disarray. Cold weather and cold water preserved the body for an autopsy. The weapon used was possibly a .38/.357/9 mm handgun. No bullet was found in the body.
