Everyday, I check The Doe Network for site updates. Yesterday they added the case of three individuals who police believe are victims of a Homicide. The Bodies have never been recovered in this case dating back to 02/07/1999.
Sarah Skiba, age 9, her Father, Paul Skiba and his employee Lorenzo Chivers were supposed to go to a moving job in Morrison, CO. on 02/07/1999. Sarah tagged along as she was visiting her Father for the weekend.
A week went by with no word from any of the three. Sarah's Mother went to the Moving Company's lot in Westminister with a friend, where they discovered the moving truck parked . It had bullett holes, blood and a piece of a bloody scalp inside. Later, DNA tests wouild confirm that the blood belonged to Sarah and her Dad and it was his scalp.
Authorities have heard that there was a dispute over drugs, and Sarah was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Police also believe the three were murdered at the lot at 72ND St and Raliegh St. in Westminister, and their bodies were taken in the truck to an unknown destination. The truck left the lot at around 9:00 PM and was returned about midnite.
I realize that this particular, heinious crime is 9 years old. That's how old Sarah was when she disappeared. Police want to know if anyone, anywhere saw this moving van that night. It is described as a 1978 Chevy, 25 Ft. (app) white moving truck. It has red crescent designs on both sides.
There are rewards being offered in this case. Regardless these families and friends of the victims need to have closure, and the persons responsible have to be brought to justice for this crime. Think about it for just a second. Somewhere, out where we live, a person or persons are walking around free while these families and friends suffer every single day not knowing where their loved ones are. They can't even be laid to rest. They all deserve that dignity.
Please contact the Thornton Police Department at (303) 538-7461 if you have any information that can help to solve this crime and bring justice to the victims.
