TRINIDAD, Colo. – In the southern-most part of Colorado, a rancher and his wife in Trinidad have been stumped by something mysterious.

For the past couple of decades, someone or something has been killing Tom Miller’s cattle and leaving the bodies in random places.

“In cases with Tom, some of the animals are dropped or placed at such a hard impact that there was one case where the rib cage was broken. In this last case, the rib cage was actually separated from the back bone,” said Chuck Zukowski, a paranormal investigator.

Zukowski has worked a couple cases on Miller’s ranch and still finds himself baffled.
