Thank you. Please let us know about the investigation before it gets filed away with the others that are still unsolved.


Maybe you should go ahead and get schooling in investigating and volunteer your time! Do you think these investigators just sit on their butts and so nothing! They work hard to keep us safe in our county, yet we still have people such as yourself always making derogatory remarks about them!


I can't even get them to report the actual location of recent Apache County flood photos so don't act surprised that someone is critical of the reporting process.
