Three suspects from Wyoming are accused of killing a Colorado woman whose body was found nearly two months after she went missing, authorities said.
The 29-year-old victim, who police have not yet publicly identified, was last seen alive on Nov. 6 in Aurora, Colorado, where she was reportedly kidnapped.
According to Aurora Police Major Crimes Unit investigators, a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu was spotted in the area a day later.
Investigators connected the Malibu to two men and a woman — Casey Childers, 39, Leo VanBuskirk, 23, and Shantel Edlund, 43 — and seized the vehicle.
On Dec. 29, officers in Sheridan, Wyoming, arrested Childers, VanBuskirk and Edlund on unrelated charges, and detectives from the Aurora Police Major Crimes Unit traveled to Wyoming to interview the three about the missing woman.
