(Real Vail) Following the discovery of skeletal remains last week, a Vail police detective this week said there’s only one active, adult missing-person case in the ski town of more than 5,000 residents: Julie Cunningham, a victim of serial killer Ted Bundy in March of 1975.
But Detective Sgt. Annette Dopplick said it’s too early to know if the human skeleton unearthed during a hotel demolition project last week is the 26-year-old ski instructor and ski-shop worker whom Bundy said he kidnapped, strangled, dumped near Rifle and later returned to bury.
"The Vail Police Department has only one active missing adult case: Julie L. Cunningham," Dopplick wrote in an email Tuesday. "It is still early in the investigation and the Vail Police Department investigations team is considering all possibilities."
