Overview of 2000 Pueblo Colorado John Doe
A woman on horseback came across a camp where the victim's skeletal remains were found reclining on a sleeping bag. The camp was located on the prairie about a mile north of the Walking Stick housing development, north of Pueblo. There were no indications of foul play. At the camp area there was a tent that had not been pitched, a second sleeping bag, several canteens and several changes of clothing. A witness told investigators he had encountered a man camping on the open range in August 2000. According to the witness, the man said he was from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was working his way to Denver. The man had dreadlocks in his hair that were about 4 to 6 inches long. The transient was told he couldn't stay on the land and would have to move. Apparently, the man moved, but only about a half a mile. The victim was possibly mentally ill and was either released or walked away from a mental hospital.
