Investigators are expected to provide an update regarding the death investigation of 17-year-old Maggie Long, whose body was found in early December after her family’s home was intentionally set on fire.

The Park County Sheriff’s Office will be joined by representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Long was first reported missing on December 1, the same day a fire ravaged her home along County Road 43 near Bailey.

Her death has since been ruled a homicide, but investigators still have not named a suspect in the case.

In January, the Park County Undersheriff confirmed to 9NEWS that they had taken DNA samples from family members and others associated with the Long family, but that they were not taken based on suspect information.

Before her body was located, a judge issued a gag order in the case, which prohibited the release of any information about the case by first responders, law enforcement, court personnel, the coroner’s office, the district attorney’s office or anyone associated with these agencies.

Over the course of the investigation, law enforcement has offered a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of anyone involved in her death.

The news conference is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. at the Platte Canyon Fire Protection District.

9NEWS plans to stream the conference online and on Facebook.
