UPDATE: 7/4/13 – Fort Morgan police said last week they had found new evidence in the case, then on Thursday, June 27 they confirmed they found human remains in the 19500 block of Morgan County Road W. The remains were found about a mile east of Highway 52 and the Fort Morgan Municipal Airport.
The remains were found to belong to Kayla Chadwick. Her cause of death remains unknown at this time.
Officers rearrested Chadwick’s boyfriend, IVan Torralba and arrested his mother, Lucila last month on charges that she committed perjury while testifying before the grand jury and for attempting to influence a public servant.
Ivan Torralba was initially arrested in November 2012 after a grand jury indicted him for perjury, tampering with evidence and attempting to influence a public servant. Authorities have said Torralba gave false testimony to a grand jury and tampered with evidence in the investigation into Chadwick’s disappearance. However, he has not been charged with committing a crime against Chadwick. Ivan was rearrested on June 18, when the police came to the home with a search warrant and found he was in possession of marijuana.
