On a bitter cold night in January of 1982, two young women disappeared in the vicinity of Hoosier Pass, between Summit County and Park County. They were found murdered in different locations, but the cases appear to be connected. Annette Schnee (left) was 10 days shy of her 22nd birthday when she left Breckenridge on January 6, 1982. Barbara "Bobbie" Jo Oberholtzer was celebrating a promotion at work before heading home to Alma on that snowy winter night.
The case captured the enduring interest of a few investigators who keep the memories alive to this day. They are asking for the public's help in finding missing pieces of information or old memories which may not have been included in the investigation. The search is going out worldwide with a new website launched this weekend containing details of the case, time line information, and case file photos and evidence.
Please visit this new website for Rocky Mountain Cold Case (updated with two additional photos November 8, 2005) and get to know Annette and Bobbie Jo, or refresh your memory on the events of that winter. The site lists contact information for anyone with any bit of information, no matter how small or obscure it may seem. An anonymous contact number for Crimestoppers is also listed.
