Authorities presumed Michael Kevin Leese died in this cabin fire up the Frying Pan on Sunday morning. But after fruitless searching with cadaver dogs and hand-combing through the wreckage, Eagle County investigators are stumped about last weekend’s cabin fire ... and Leese is now the subject of a missing person case.

KDNK's Morgan Neely has Thursday's news, including a possible infusion of housing in New Castle. And, the man officials assumed burn to death in a cabin fire up the Frying Pan is nowhere to be found, and is now considering a missing person. Meanwhile, Colorado lawmakers want to add guardrails to the wolf reintroduction process in the state, and without an expansion the Pitkin County Landfill could be full in seven years. Also, Gov. Polis is in Japan, and West Slope Legislators team up for a virtual bipartisan town hall meeting as the Colorado Legislature nears the midway point of the session.

Morgan is KDNK's News Director. He comes to KDNK with public radio passion and experience. He was a news host, reporter, and operations/programming director at KAJX-Aspen, and has extensive experience working in municipal government.
