PARK COUNTY, Colo. — The Park County sheriff announced Thursday a reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone involved in the Maggie Long homicide case.

Long was reported missing more than a month and a half ago. Her remains were discovered at her burned home off County Road 43 in Bailey in early December. Arson is suspected.

The reward is $15,000. Park County deputies along with agents at the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are hoping the money will lead to a killer or killers.

Since her remains were found, detectives have stayed largely quiet.

“I just think with a high-profile murder case they’d be after it a little better,” a Bailey resident said Thursday.

Opinions on the progress or lack thereof of the investigation vary.

“I have a lot of faith in our sheriff,” a Bailey man said. “I’ve known Fred for many, many years. I think they’ll be doing a good job.”

Last week, investigators confirmed they were collecting DNA samples of young men in the area associated with Long or her family.

News of a reward has some people believing authorities are no closer to finding Long’s killer or killers.

Anyone with information is asked to call 303-239-4243.
