Local authorities say they are awaiting analysis of fingerprint and DNA evidence discovered in the murder of Karl Fred Kohler, whose body was found May 19 near a trailhead in Breckenridge.
The analysis could take weeks, according to a statement from the Summit County Sheriff's Office.
Authorities have pursued hundreds of leads and interviewed dozens of witnesses in the two weeks since the body was found.
Still, authorities have not named or even confirmed that they have a suspect in the case.
"It's not like the crime shows you see on TV," undersheriff Derek Woodman stated in the release. "To conduct an effective investigation takes time, and to do it right means it doesn't get wrapped up in an hour."
Forty-five-year-old Kohler's body was found near the Burro Trail Trailhead on Peak 9 May 19. His death was ruled a homicide due to blunt force trauma.
Kohler had lived in Breck for approximately 10 years prior to his death, primarily camping in the woods near town and working at local restaurants.
Secondhand information suggests he was killed by a baseball bat.
