On Saturday, November 20, 2021, at about 4 p.m., the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a local resident who had discovered what she believed were human remains while hiking east of Rustic Road, a little over 4 miles east of Black Hollow Road. Deputies and Coroner’s Office investigators responded and recovered the remains. Following the official identification of the remains as Diana Brown by the Coroner’s Office, we are relieved the Brown family will be able to put her to rest and have closure to the terrible loss they experienced on July 20th, 2021. All the victims of the Black Hollow Flood have now been located, recovered, and identified.
