The Maggie Long Story
On December 1, 2017 at approximately 7PM, deputies with the Park County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a house fire located at 3763 County Road 43, Bailey, Park County, Colorado.
Park County Communications advised the reporting party called 911 and stated that people were inside the residence causing damage. The witness observed at least one male party on the property. It was learned by responding officers that this residence is owned by the Long family.
After the fire was extinguished at the Long ranch, Maggie Long’s remains were discovered by fire and rescue personnel. The area surrounding her body was badly damaged by fire and the El Paso County Coroner’s Office ruled her death a homicide. Investigative efforts at the scene revealed a physical altercation took place between Maggie and her assailants before the fire started. Law enforcement believe the intent of the fire was to conceal actions of these assailants, such as the physical altercation and subsequent robbery.
This website was created to allow the Maggie Long Task Force to engage with the community and provide a venue for community members to share any information they may have directly with the task force. Oftentimes, members of the community have information of value but do not come forward because of concerns that it may not be important or may be information law enforcement already has. Please provide any information you have or other details you are aware of, even if you have previously provided the information. There’s currently a $50,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible.
