Sheriff’s Office handles suicides, murder cases
Three separate incidents over the weekend
March 13, 2006
Man found dead near Granite Creek
On February 9, the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office responded to an assistance request from Teton County Sheriff’s Office for help in locating a suicidal subject in the Granite Creek Area. Deputies found the vehicle of Jan Kurty in the Granite Creek parking lot, but Kurty was not in the immediate area. Search & Rescue teams from both counties were called in and combed the area, but were unable to locate the missing man due to the amount of snow and lack of any visible tracks. The search was suspended. A month later, on Saturday, March 11, Mr. Kurty's body was found by an off-duty Teton County Deputy who was in the area coyote hunting. The cause of death has not yet been determined.
Man killed in Boulder
On Saturday, March 11, Sublette County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call on Big River Road in Boulder and found the body of a male subject in a residence. A female subject who resided at the same address was located, questioned and arrested. She is currently being held in the Sublette County Jail. No names or further details were released by the Sheriff’s Office. The incident is currently under investigation.
Boulder man commits suicide
On Saturday, March 11, a man living in Boulder, Wyoming, was found deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound. Name information is being withheld until family members can be notified. This incident is under investigation. It has been determined this incident was totally unrelated to the death of another man nearby in Boulder around the same time.
