Cold case: Suspect in 1979 disappearance of 15-year-old Craig girl dies

A 51-year-old man long considered a suspect in the death of a 15-year-old Craig girl in 1979 fell down a set of basement steps and died Thursday, his mother confirmed. Stephen Skufca was on parole for a drug dealing and harassment conviction and was engaged to be married, his mother Ruth Skufca said Saturday. "We're just devastated," Ruth Skufca said. "He was just getting his life together." Ruth Skufca, 76, expressed bitterness that her son had been hounded for years about a crime she said she is confident he didn't commit.
