PRESS RELEASE: On Sunday, October 11, 2020, at 1600 hours, Alamosa County Sheriff’s Office took a report from family members of Joy Cipoletti, age 60, of Colorado Springs, CO. They advised that she was overdue from a hike to the summit of Ellingwood Point, which is one of the 14ers in Alamosa County. Family members advised that they received a phone call from Joy on Saturday, October 10, 2020, at approximately 1500 hours and that she was at the Ellingwood Point summit and that she had a long hike back to her vehicle and would be returning later that date to her home in Colorado Springs. Family members advised that she was an experienced, well-equipped hiker.

On Sunday, October 11, 2020, the Alamosa Volunteer Search and Rescue (AVSAR) responded to Zapata Falls Trailhead parking lot and deployed search and rescue teams in that area based on information gained through Deputies from the Alamosa Sheriff’s Office. Over the course of the next 4-days, numerous teams including aircraft support searched the basin for Joy with no results.

On Thursday, October 15, 2020, a Blackhawk helicopter from Buckley AFB spotted a red back pack that belonged to Joy. A drone team from Park County Search and Rescue was immediately inserted into the area. Joy’s body was located in the area and recovery teams were inserted to the location. It was evident upon arrival that Joy had fallen a great distance. After a lengthy extraction she was taken to a landing zone and removed from the mountain side by Flight for Life. Joy’s family was involved throughout the rescue.

We would like to thank everyone that was involved in this search. Sheriff Jackson will provide a list of all involved at a later date.

10/16/2020

The Cipoletti Family has shared the following message with the Alamosa Sheriff’s Office. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that the Cipoletti family says goodbye to our amazing Joy, who we love beyond words.

Joy's strength and love of life impacted everyone who knew her. She played a deeply caring, active role in the lives of her three children, parents, three sisters and four brothers. As an avid hiker and outdoor adventurer, nature was Joy's happy place. She shared this love of the Colorado outdoors with many people in her life.

Our hearts are broken by this sudden loss of our dear Joy.

Our family would like to thank the Alamosa Volunteer Search and Rescue, the Alamosa County Sheriff's Department and the dozens of other amazing search and rescue volunteers and professionals who dedicated their time and expertise to search for and eventually find Joy. We can't begin to show our appreciation and gratitude for how you searched for our Joy with the determination and care that you would show as if she were a member of your family. You are heroes to us and we are forever grateful to each and every one of you.”

Alamosa Volunteer Search And Rescue

At 1340 on July 23rd, AVSAR was contacted by the Alamosa County dispatch Center about a Hiker in distress who was on Lake Como Rd. The hiker was complaining of chest pains and light headedness. AVSAR paged out the team along with two of the 4×4 drivers. Alamosa EMS staged an ambulance at Incident Command to evaluate the hiker once he was brought down. Two truck teams were sent up the mountain and made contact with him at 1559. After the hiker was evaluated, he was evacuated via the 4×4 trucks and then was, once again, evaluated by Alamosa EMS upon arrival to Incident Command. All teams were back to Incident command at 1708.
A huge thanks goes out to Undersheriff Shawn Woods for initially driving his patrol vehicle as high as he could up Lake Como Rd to try to reach the hiker and to Sheriff Robert Jackson for always being our biggest supporters!

Alamosa Sheriff's Office would like to share some pertinent information due to some misinformation in our community regarding Defendant James Marshall bonding out of jail.

James Marshall was arrested on Thursday, June 4, 2020, on the following charges:

Criminal Attempt - 2nd Degree Murder (F3)
1st Degree Assault (F3)
Reckless Endangerment (M3)
Felony Menacing (F5)
Criminal Mischief (M1)
Illegal Use of a Firearm (F5)
Prohibited Use of a Weapon (M2)

Bond was set at $60,000 and Mr. Marshall was financially able to post that bond. Mr. Marshall chose to exercise his constitutional right and posted his bond to get out of jail. This is the same right available to all American citizens.

According to the United States Constitution and the Colorado Constitution, every person arrested for any crime is entitled to have a monetary bond set based upon the crime committed. When a person is arrested, they are processed at the County Jail and bond is set according to a bond schedule that is set by the Colorado Judicial Branch. Mr. Marshall’s bond was originally set at $50,000.00. Initially, Mr. Marshall did not post that bond. Mr. Marshall had a hearing in front of the Alamosa County Judge on Friday June 5, 2020; during that hearing, the defendant’s attorney requested a bond reduction, that request was denied by the Alamosa County Judge. At that hearing, the judge actually increased the bond from $50,000.00 to $60,000.00 which was the proper amount required based upon the charges against the defendant.

We recognize that this type of crime and these types of allegations are concerning to the citizens of this community. Please understand that the Sheriff’s Office and local law enforcement take your concerns very seriously.
