I saw them with her body in Clear Creek Canyon. I called Edgewater PD but never received a reply. They had her car accompanied by a large dark truck and three people were with her. I saw them. They had her by the tunnels but must have decided against that. She was already wrapped up and nothing was really on the news yet, I dismissed it at first because I did not know how short she was so I assumed it could not have been an adult and therefore not her until they found her body. When they found her car I recognized it as the car and I knew she must be up there somewhere. I work in that canyon.

For Immediate Release - Dec 15, 2011
A Jefferson County grand jury has indicted two men and a woman in the death of 30-year-old Heather Jean DeWild in 2003. Daniel Donald DeWild, 39, who was Heather’s estranged husband, his identical twin brother David Norman DeWild, and Mary Roseanne DeWild, 50, were indicted on December 9, 2011. Roseanne DeWild was the live-in girlfriend of David DeWild at the time Heather was murdered. They have since married.
According to court documents, on July 24, 2003 Heather went to 2031 Fenton, in Edgewater, at around noon. Daniel DeWild lived there with his brother David and Roseanne. Daniel is alleged to have created a “ruse” in order to get Heather to come to his home. Their final divorce hearing was scheduled for the following week. Daniel knew that Heather would bring their two small children with her. The children were three and five years old.
On September 4, 2003 the badly decomposed body of Heather DeWild was found in a shallow grave just off of westbound Highway 6, near mile marker 262.5. She was wearing the same clothing that she wore on the day she disappeared, July 24th. Heather’s neck and wrist were loosely bound with rope. Her body was wrapped in trash bags and secured by duct tape.
“Solving this homicide has been my priority since I took office in 2005. The investigation has been a long time coming, but investigators in my office, the Jefferson Sheriff’s County Office, the Arvada Police Department, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the Edgewater Police Department have never forgotten Heather DeWild,” said Jefferson County District Attorney Scott Storey, “Homicide cases become much more difficult to solve with the passage of time. The tenacity of our investigators allowed us to take this to the grand jury. We are pleased that they have returned this indictment.”
Daniel DeWild, David DeWild and Roseanne DeWild were arrested this morning and are each being held on a $1M cash bond. They were each indicted on one count of first degree murder, after deliberation, and one count of conspiracy to commit first degree murder. Their first court appearance will be Thursday morning, December 15, at 10:00 in Courtroom 1B of the Jefferson County Courthouse.

MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE - AFTER DELIBERATION, C.R.S. 18-3-
On and between July 24, 2003 and September 4, 2003, in and triable in the County of Jefferson, State of Colorado,
CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE – AFTER DELIBERATION, C.R.S. 18-3-102(1)(a)(F2)
act in pursuance of such conspiracy was committed by one or more of the conspirators; in violation of sections 18-3-102(1)(a), C.R.S. and 18-2-201, C.R.S. contrary to the form of statutes in such case made and provided, and against the peace and dignity of the People of the State of Colorado.
The facts supporting Counts One and Two are as follows:
At or about noon on July 24, 2003, Heather DeWild went to the home of her estranged husband, Daniel DeWild, at 2031 Fenton Street in Edgewater, Jefferson County, Colorado. This occurred after Daniel DeWild’s failed attempt to reconcile his marriage with Heather DeWild on July 22, 2003 by going to her parents’ home in Arvada, CO with a card and
flowers. Daniel DeWild left the Arvada residence angry and then set up a ruse to get Heather DeWild to come to his home on July 24, 2003. Daniel DeWild was aware that Heather DeWild would bring their two children with her to the Fenton Street residence at that time, as Heather DeWild had never met with him alone during the separation. Daniel DeWild lived at this residence with his identical twin brother, David DeWild, and David’s live-in girlfriend, Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild). On July 24, 2003, Heather DeWild took her two children with her to the Fenton Street residence: son, age 5, and daughter, age 3. Heather DeWild presumably went to the residence to sign a mortgage check and pick up insurance cards for the children, despite the final divorce hearing scheduled just one week later on July 31, 2003. When interviewed on July 25, 2003, the male child tells Denver police that while at
the residence, Daniel DeWild was "sneaking up on her [Heather DeWild] back." The male child also told police he didn’t "know what they [Heather and Daniel DeWild] were fighting for." Heather DeWild was never seen alive again by anyone other than Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, or Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild). The two children remained at the residence until picked up later in the evening by Heather DeWild’s mother. Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) was at the Fenton Street residence during the time Heather DeWild was present.
Heather DeWild was murdered between July 24, 2003 and September 4, 2003. (Murder is an on going criminal activity that does not conclude with the death of the homicide victim. Murder necessarily includes the cover up of the actual life taking conduct as well as the disposal of the murder victim’s body. In order to "accomplish" the murder of Heather DeWild, Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) subdued Heather DeWild and removed her from the Fenton Street residence. In addition, Heather DeWild’s car and body were then disposed of, staged, and a code of silence was put in place. Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) were engaged in a "common enterprise," "promoting and facilitating" the murder and cover up of Heather DeWild’s murder.
Nissan Sentra left the disposal location in a vehicle headed eastbound on 43rd. Around lunchtime on July 24, 2003, a witness observes a male sitting in a cherry red convertible with a black top parked along the street on 43
On and between July 24, 2003 and September 4, 2003, Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) did aid, abet, and act in furtherance of the conspiracy to murder Heather DeWild and cover up the murder of Heather DeWild. By agreement and cooperation, Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) actively communicated as evidenced by their actions and the phone call activity surrounding
the disappearance of Heather DeWild on July 24, 2003, some of that phone call activity is reflected as follows:

In support of an agreement to cover up the murder of Heather DeWild and/or thwart any suspicions, Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) staged Heather DeWild’s body. Staging is the intentional introduction of spurious evidence in an attempt to redirect the investigation. Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) put a silver duct tape "mask" on Heather DeWild’s face and tied rope loosely around her neck and wrists. The knots of the rope were wrapped in black
electrical tape. They also put Heather DeWild’s body in trash bags and secured the bags with duct tape. Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) then buried Heather DeWild in a shallow grave in the canyon along westbound US Highway 6 near mile marker 262.
Following Heather DeWild’s disappearance, a witness sees Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) attempting to discard Heather DeWild’s body and white vehicle. The witness observed the three of them up in the canyon around 4:00 a.m. along eastbound US Highway 6 between tunnels two and three, in a pull off near the river.
Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne Knowles (Roseanne DeWild) were standing off to the side of the road by a white Nissan Sentra and a black truck. The witness observed a shorter body wrapped in plastic with two lighter colored straps around the plastic, lying on the ground behind the white car.
On July 30, 2003, a bloodhound decomposition search was conducted on David DeWild’s brown Chevrolet Suburban with positive results. On July 31, 2003, Detectives inform David DeWild of the positive indication of decomposition on the Suburban. The following day, August 1, 2003, David DeWild and Roseanne DeWild get married. Roseanne DeWild says the marriage occurred "Just in case something happens" and "So I couldn’t testify against him [David DeWild]."
Heather DeWild’s white Nissan Sentra is recovered on August 4, 2003 in a parking space at the Newgate apartments in Wheat Ridge, Jefferson County, Colorado, across the street from where it is initially observed by witnesses on July 24, 2003. This is the same general location where David DeWild’s cell phone registers a signal off a tower at 1:11 p.m. on July 24, 2003. The white Nissan Sentra was moved from the initial parking place in the greenbelt where Daniel DeWild, David DeWild, and Roseanne DeWild decided to park it on July 24, 2003. Based upon bloodhound scent lineups, Daniel DeWild is determined to be the last person who drove the vehicle.
On September 4, 2003, Heather DeWild’s badly decomposed and obviously staged body is recovered from a shallow grave in a pile of dirt along westbound US Highway 6 at mile marker 262.5. Heather DeWild was wearing the clothing she was last seen in on July 24, 2003. Rope was tied loosely around her neck and wrists, binding them together, and a silver duct tape "mask" made of several pieces of vertical and horizontal duct tape is found. There
was no indication of sexual assault or redressing of Heather DeWild’s body. Heather DeWild’s body was wrapped in two trash bags secured by two separate sections of silver duct tape. One of these trash bags matched the general class characteristics of a trash bag recovered from the Fenton Street residence.
An autopsy is conducted on September 7, 2003 by the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office. The final manner of Heather DeWild’s death is determined to be: Homicide.
