About this Case:

August 16, 1976, a fisherman discovered a plastic bag on the banks of the Pueblo Reservoir. Inside was a woman's arms, legs, and breasts. Hours later, a woman's head, torso and other body parts were discovered in another plastic bag 20 miles away on Pueblo's east side. The investigation quickly identified the body as Sharon Marie Copp, 34, a mother of three girls. Sharon Copp had been beaten, sexually assaulted and tortured. She died of multiple skull fractures; her body was dismembered after her death. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pueblo Police Department.
