Skeletonized Remains Found


Montrose, CO—The skeletonized remains discovered on December 1, 2017, at 59741 US Highway 50 in Olathe, Colorado have been definitively identified as those of Gary G. Goldman, 77 of Olathe, Colorado.

Mr. Goldman was reported missing from Colorow Care Center on July 17, 2017, and has been the subject of many hours of searching by the Olathe Police Department, the Montrose County Sheriff’s Office, the Montrose County Sheriff’s Posse, the Montrose County Coroner’s Office of Medical Investigations, Service Dogs of Colorado, Delta County Search and Rescue, Olathe Spray Service, Uncompahgre Valley Water Users, Olathe Fire Department, State of Colorado Fire Control helicopters, Colorow Care Center and multiple other agencies and volunteers with many thousands of dollars of volunteer labor time and equipment utilization.

A forensic autopsy was performed by Dr. Michael Benziger, MD at the forensic science laboratory at Montrose Memorial Hospital. Based upon the forensic autopsy results and the multiple materials recovered by investigators the body has been definitively identified by the Montrose County Office of Medical Investigations as that of Mr. Goldman. This identification is based on the physical characteristics of the autopsied body as compared to Mr. Goldman’s medical records, dental examination as compared to antemortem photographs, personal items located with the body including clothing on which has his name was written, and the circumstances of the body location near Colorow Care Center.

Although the remains have been definitively identified as those of Mr. Goldman, the cause and manner of death are both certified as undetermined due to the lack of physical evidence.

His family has been notified and is making arrangements for his final internment.
