About this Case:

Since February 1999, the Westminster Police Department and Thornton Police Department detectives have investigated the suspicious disappearance of nine year old Sarah Skiba, her father Paul Skiba and Lorenzo Chivers an employee of Paul's moving company and storage facility (Tuff's Moving) near the 7000 block of Raleigh Street, Westminster. Physical evidence was located at the moving and storage facility and in or on two moving trucks owned by the business. Blood found at the facility was confirmed to be human blood by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and identified through DNA as being from Paul and Sarah Skiba. On February 17, 1999, a vehicle belonging to Lorenzo Chivers was located several blocks away from the moving and storage facility at the apartment complex parking lot of the 3800 block of West 68th Avenue, Westminster, and on February 27, 1999, the vehicle belonging to Paul Skiba was located in an apartment complex parking lot near the 3100 block of Arkansas St, Denver. The investigation and forensic evidence indicate Sarah and Paul Skiba and Lorenzo Chivers were likely murdered near 72nd Avenue and Raleigh Street in Westminster on February 7, 1999. Their bodies have never been recovered. The case has been reclassified as a homicide investigation. ***We encourage anyone with information regarding this case to please contact the Westminster Police Department
