Body that of missing woman
A body found in the Colorado River outside Parachute on Monday is that of a woman who was reported missing this week, according to Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire.
Daisy Ferguson, 43, Parachute, was reported missing on Aug. 6.
Garfield County sheriff spokesman WaltStowe said the body was spotted on a sandbar by people tubing on the river with their families. They called 911 and sheriff deputies responded to the scene.
The cause and manner of her death are under investigation, but foul play is not suspected, Glassmire said.
Man arrested in altercation
A 48-year-old man was arrested at the Mesa Inn early Tuesday morning after allegedly brandishing a knife at another man who was wielding a pool skimmer, an arrest affidavit said.
Craig Lawrence Sellers could be charged with felony menacing, felony driving under the influence and driving without a valid driver’s license after the incident at the motel at 704 Horizon Drive.
A Grand Junction police officer wrote in a report that the motel manager called police at about 12:46 a.m. Tuesday to report a man had pulled a knife on him. The man said he saw Sellers walking toward him, and asked him whether he was staying there. When Sellers said no, the staff member asked him what he was doing.
“Craig responded, ‘Walk away,’” the affidavit said. “(The manager) looked down and noticed Craig was holding a knife in his right hand.”
The motel manager said he grabbed a pool skimmer to use to defend himself, but Sellers walked away.
Officers pulled Sellers over in his car nearby, and noticed his “thick and slurred speech,” the smell of alcohol and a knife in his front pocket. Sellers had four previous drinking and driving charges in his criminal history, the report said.
He appeared Tuesday afternoon in Mesa County Court, where Judge Craig Henderson issued him a $10,000 cash-only bond.
