On September 17, 1986, two employees were loading gravel on outlying Coors property, east of Highway 58 and McIntyre Street. They found a badly decomposed body in the nearby brush. Investigation determined that the body was that of 26 year old Julia DeTemple. She was last seen on August 18, 1986 when she hitchhiked to the 40 High bar and later obtained a ride to the Tap Inn. After 8 pm she was issued a Denver Mountain Parks Ticket in Red Rocks Park. DeTemple was wearing blue jeans, a light blue short sleeve sweat shirt and brown boots.
