Teen girl at center of massive manhunt in Colorado died by suicide, was seen running naked through woods, carrying a gun before she died: Report


Multiple sources are reporting that Sol Pais died by suicide.

Citing “high-ranking” law enforcement sources, the Denver Channel reports that Pais, 18, died by suicide near the base of Mt. Evans in Clear Creek County.

Colorado authorities are expected to deliver further details at a press conference late Wednesday morning.


Shortly before she was reportedly found dead at the base of a mountain in Colorado, 18-year-old Sol Pais was reportedly seen naked running through woods in Clear Creek County.

Multiple Denver-area news stations have cited law enforcement officials in announcing that Pais had been found dead amid a massive manhunt in the area. Temperatures in Clear Creek County were barely above freezing on Wednesday, and temperatures were likely colder at higher altitudes.

It is unclear how Pais died, but an FBI agent reportedly told a CBS Denver reporter, “We got her.”

Area schools were closed due to what authorities described as a credible, but unspecified, threat as Pais reportedly traveled from Miami to Denver on Monday and bought a firearm and ammunition. She was believed to be “infatuated” with the Columbine school shooting, which had its 20-year anniversary this week.
