GOLDEN — Authorities have identified a woman whose body was dumped on Lookout Mountain west of Denver.

Jacki Kelley, spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, says 38-year-old Sandra Mercado was stabbed to death. Investigators originally said Mercado had no known connection to Colorado, but they now say she lived and worked in Aurora.

Authorities also say she has relatives who live out of state, but investigators did not release any details.

A hiker found the body near Windy Saddle Park and the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave on Thursday morning. Investigators believe the woman was killed within 24 hours of her body being dumped.
