Back in May of this year, Jeff Garrett of Aurora, Colorado was mistaken for a turkey and shot and killed. Garrett was Assistant Vice President of Qwest in Colorado, married and had two children.

Police believe that while Garrett was quite well hidden in heavy brush and calling turkeys, someone mistook him for a turkey and shot him. The suspect fled the scene and until recently nobody had been charged with the crime.

Now authorities believe the shooter was a Mexican national working at a nearby ranch clearing brush. The rifle that was used in the shooting has been found and one person has come forward as a witness. The suspect is believed to have fled back to Mexico but police are confident that justice will be done.
