Fourth person may have been involved in Maggie Long's murder

Maggie Long, 17, was killed on Dec 1, 2017. Nearly two years later, the case remains unsolved.

BAILEY, Colo. — A fourth person may have been involved in the December 2017 killing of 17-year-old Maggie Long inside her Bailey home, according to a spokesperson for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

A silhouette of that person was added to the Maggie Long Task Force website, which was created in January of this year to help generate new leads in the case. 

"It could be a male or a female, but we believe there is possibly a fourth person that is either involved int he burglary on Dec. 1, 2017, or that might be a key witness that we would like to talk to," said FBI spokeswoman Amy Meyer.

Around 7 p.m. on Dec. 1, deputies with the Park County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a fire at the Long home at 3763 County Road 43 in Bailey.

The witness who called 911 said that people were inside the residence causing damage, according to the task force website. That witness also saw at least one man on the property. 

Fire and rescue crews found Maggie’s body inside the burned home, but the public wouldn’t know the 17-year-old’s fate until six days later when a gag order was lifted.
