September 27, 2018
FRISCO — The Park County Sheriff’s Office discovered skeletal human remains earlier this month that are presumed to be the remains of a man who went missing in the area in April 2017.
On Sep. 5, the remains were discovered by a group of Colorado Forensic Canines near Guffey, a rural town off Colorado Highway 9 between Fairplay and Cañon City, while conducting a search associated with William Iovenko, who was 47 years old when he went missing.
The search area was near where Iovenko’s car was found in 2017, according to a release from Park County Coroner David Kintz Jr. The Park County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner’s Office conducted a field search and recovery of the remains. Identification is pending receipt of dental records for comparison by a forensic odontologist. The Coroner’s Office will conduct an anthropological exam on the remains.
The cause and manner of death remain under investigation pending the completion of all exams.
