ASPEN’S FIRST MURDER IN 12 YEARS INVESTIGATED
Aspen—The murder of 57 year old Aspen native Nancy Pfister remains shrouded in mystery. Homicide investigators with the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation aren’t saying much about how she was killed, only that she was murdered. No arrests have been made in the case. Pfister was found dead in her home last Wednesday. An autopsy was done the next day but the results are still under wraps. Other than murder-suicides, this is the first murder in Pitkin County since 2002.
BASALT RECYCLING CENTER CLOSED
Basalt—Thanks to people dumping old tvs, batteries, couches and other junk, the Basalt Recycling Center was forced to close today. Town officials posted signs about the impending closure two weeks ago because the trash-dumping got out of hand and it’s going to take some time to sort through everything. Officials say the recycling center became an easy place for illegal dumping because there are no gates or security cameras. If you need to drop off some items for recycling, the new site is run by Waste Management in the Basalt Industrial Park.
