GRAND JUNCTION (AP) - The family of a Colorado mom found dead in Delta County wants her remains back.
According to the Denver Post, Mesa County authorities say they have not released the body because they have been unable to determine the cause of death since her remains were found last March.
DNA test results confirmed that skeletal remains found in western Colorado are that of Grand Junction resident Paige Birgfeld, who disappeared in 2007.
Authorities say it appears Birgfeld's body was buried, but erosion eventually exposed it.
The 34-year-old mother of three sold kitchen products, did odd jobs and ran an escort service.
