Well, so much for moving the investigation. KJCT Television in Grand Junction is reporting that Frank Birgfeld's request to have the investigation of Paige's disappearance removed from the Mesa County Sheriff's Department to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been denied.

Tension is building between the Mesa County Sheriffs Office and the family of a missing Grand Junction woman. Frank Birgfeld, father of missing mom of three Paige Birgfeld, asked to have the Mesa County Sheriffs Office removed from the investigation; that won't happen, at least right now. In mid-May Mr. Birgfeld asked the Sheriff's Office to transfer the investigation to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. Birgfeld is concerned tens of thousands of dollars were illegally taken from his daughters' home after the investigation began. Heather Benjamin, with the Sheriff's Office, says the Birgfeld case is not being transferred to the C.B.I. She says the Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been involved with the Birgfeld case since day one, and because of this there is no need to hand it over. She says the C.B.I is working on certain parts of the investigation and the case will remain with the Sheriff's Office. This does not satisfy Mr. Birgfeld. He has asked the F.B.I to conduct an investigation by its Public Corruption Unit. "There doesn't seem to be a right smell about this. There's something wrong. That's one reason I'd like to have somebody independent and objective start picking this up. It's also a reason why I asked the evidence file to be protected," said Birgfeld. When asked today for a response, the Sheriff's Department politely refused. Mr. Birgfeld plans to continue his efforts, but will not disclose what those next steps will be. Paige Birgfeld went missing on June 28th, 2007. A few days later her car was found on fire. No suspects have been charge and a body has never been found.
