Body found in Arvada may be identified

DENVER — Authorities say they will soon have more to say about a body found in a Denver suburb.

Police have refused to suggest any connection between the body and a missing girl from another suburb.

Police in Westminster say they will have an update about the investigation on Friday.

Ten-year-old Jessica Ridgeway of Westminster was last seen leaving for school on Oct. 5. The body was found Wednesday in the Pattridge Park open space in Arvada, about seven miles southwest of Jessica’s home.

The open space is south of the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge and is dotted with abandoned coal mine shafts. The area is favored by mountain bikers and model airplane flyers on weekends.
