Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Casey Berry was last seen at approximately 9:00 am leaving his residence with a friend, Duane Kulakofsky, to go to an acquaintance's residence in a very rural area of Blanca, Costilla County, CO.
The acquaintance was a Native American man known only as Bob; he was known to be violent and always carry a rifle. According to Kulakofsky, when Berry did not return from Bob's residence, Kulakofsky went looking for him and found Berry's body and a lot of blood at Bob's home. Bob told them they had got into an argument and that he had shot Berry five times in the head. Bob forced Kulakofsky at gunpoint to help him clean up and put Berry's body in an old car which was set on fire.
Kulakofsky agreed to assist in the investigation, but then left town and has not been heard from or seen since.
