DENVER – Eagle County sheriff’s officials say human remains were discovered in a backcountry area of Vail Pass during a search as part of an FBI investigation.

FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright confirms that agents were in the area Monday. Wright declined to say whether the search was part of its investigation into Scott Lee Kimball, 42, who has connections to four people who disappeared in 2003 and 2004.

Kimball is a former cooperating witness for the FBI. In March, he led investigators to the remains of a 24-year-old woman in a remote canyon in eastern Utah. He also claims to know the whereabouts of another woman’s remains in the same area.

Scott Kimball has not been charged in any of the disappearances or deaths.
