Stagecoach State Park open after brief closure

Law enforcement mum about incident that closed popular recreation site


— An incident that closed Stagecoach State Park to all public access for several hours Thursday afternoon has been resolved peacefully, Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall said.

Wall could not provide any details about the incident, which brought Sheriff's Office deputies to the park in South Routt County.

"It was complicated, it was a domestic issue, and there were a lot of details that I'm not prepared to talk about," Wall said. "Several people were involved :we're still trying to figure it out."

Wall said the incident is still under investigation but resulted in no injuries or property damage.

Dr. Anne Wentz of Beaver Creek said she attempted to enter the park early Thursday afternoon for a few hours of fishing, but was turned away by park rangers and other law enforcement who would not comment about the incident.

Wall said at 5 p.m. Thursday that to his knowledge, law enforcement had left the scene and re-opened roads to the park after the incident was resolved.

It just gets curiouser and curiouser.

That doesn't look right but I did spell check on it and that is what it came up with.

"More curious" perhaps? Or "more and more curious"? Just a thought.

Wall could not provide any details, how about a few generalizations? What are they trying to cover up now? Where are you id, don't you have a conspiracy theory here? Oh, sorry, in this scenario the conspirators would include Wall, not be against him.
