BIRGFELD MURDER TRIAL
Grand Junction—She was only 8 years old when her mother failed to come home from work. Little did Jess Dixon know, her mom, Paige Birgfeld had been killed. Today in Grand Junction, Jess, now 17, took the stand in the first degree murder trial of the suspected killer, Lester Jones. According to investigators, Birgfeld led a double-life as a prostitute and Jones was a client. Dixon told prosecutors her mother was a typical “soccer mom” who took her and her two brothers to games and school and was very loving and caring. Meanwhile defense lawyers say there’s no physical evidence connecting Jones to the murder and say one of Birgfeld’s other clients could have killed her in 2007. Her remains weren’t found until 2012.
