A suspect is in custody following the death of 43 year old Shane Arrendondo.  The Craig Police Department, which is heading up the investigation, is still gathering facts following an apparent assault in the parking lot on the west side of the 400 block of Yampa Avenue. The suspect, 51 year old Leroy Fief was booked into the Moffat County Jail on suspicion of 1st degree murder. According to a release, the incident occurred shortly after 12 Saturday night. The Police Department is requesting that anyone with information about suspicious activity or a confrontation in the area of the parking lot around that time, contact the department at 826-2367.


The 33rd Annual Yule Log Hunt, sponsored by the Tread of Pioneers Museum and the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association, will begin tomorrow. KRAI and 55 Country will air the clues each day. A new clue will be released each weekday.  The 2012 hunt starts at the site of last year’s hiding place near Casey’s Pond. Clues often include information that refers to community history or past events. Unless the Log is found sooner, the 10th and final clue will be released on Friday, December 21st.  When the log is found, the finder should immediately call the Tread of Pioneers Museum at 879-2214 to end the search and have their name announced.  The winner will get a $150 Steamboat Chamber gift certificate and a framed piece of historical artwork.
