Sioux Falls Man Identified In 1987 Colorado Cold Case

(Sioux Falls, SD) — A former Sioux Falls man has been identified as the victim of a 1987 cold case in Colorado. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado announced this week that the man found dead more than 35 years ago was Jerry Mikkelson of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Mikkelson was found on a forest service road near the border of Wyoming, and investigators believe he was murdered in Wyoming and brought to Colorado following his death. The body was identified after new DNA samples were taken earlier this year while also discovering a surgical titanium rod in Mikkelson’s right femur.
