FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A park ranger has found the body of a northern Colorado woman who had been missing since early December.

The Coloradoan reports 41-year-old Kimberlee Graves was found dead in Lory State Park west of Fort Collins on Tuesday. Her death has been ruled a homicide, but investigators have not said how she was killed.

Graves was last seen at her home the night of Dec. 4, and a friend requested a welfare check from police Dec. 8. Officers checked her Fort Collins home, but no one answered the door. Graves’ car also was missing.

On Dec. 10, the same friend entered Graves’ home and reported to police that it had been ransacked. Graves’ car was found three days later abandoned in a parking lot.

Police have not said if they have identified any suspects.
