Pfister returned from a vacation in Australia on Feb. 22, and she was found dead four days later. A friend discovered her body in an upstairs closet at Pfister’s home on the evening of Feb. 26. A cause of death has not yet been released.
Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said the investigation is ongoing, and he did not rule out the possibility of more arrests. The sheriff’s office curbed public access in the courthouse and put up barricades to sequester scores of people interviewed in the past several days after Pfister’s body was found.
DiSalvo said both suspects were questioned early in the investigation, but authorities lacked enough probable to arrest them. He declined to discuss the investigation further, and court records were sealed.
I first visited Aspen more than 45 years ago. It was a weird fucking town then, and it is a weird fucking town today. I’m not sure whether Hunter Thompson’s suicide made it more or less weird, either.
