About this Case:

On April 6, 1975, Denise Oliverson set out on a bicycle ride from her home at 1619 LaVeta Street en-route to her parents house. The next day, a search party found her bicycle and shoes under the Fifth Street Bridge, near the railroad tracks. She was last seen wearing a green long-sleeved Indian print blouse and dark Levi pants. Authorities suspect that Ms. Oliverson was killed by serial killer Ted Bundy. In 1989, days before his execution, Ted Bundy told investigators he had disposed of a body in a river about five miles West of Grand Junction, Colorado. A time-line created by the FBI places Ted Bundy in Grand Junction through April of 1975. Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to please contact the Grand Junction Police Department.
