Almost five years ago, Paige Birgfeld, a mother of 3, disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Today, Birgfeld’s missing person’s case was officially labeled a homicide when remains found in a Colorado creek bed were positively identified as belonging to the missing woman.
In June 2007, Birgfeld’s car was found burning in a parking lot near her home shortly after she went missing and her personal belongings were scattered along the highway outside of town. Birgfeld, described as a supermom by friends, allegedly led a double life.
According to acquaintances, Birgfeld ran an escort business in private and went on most of the dates herself. Longtime friend, Jamie Silvernail, spoke about the mom’s secret business to People. ”There is a very clear line between legal and illegal and she made sure that line was never crossed. She knew if she crossed that line, she could jeopardize her kids,” she said.
Despite the fact that Birgfeld’s remains have been found, her father tells the Post the discovery has not brought him closure. ”I think of my daughter at least three or four times a day every day. The fact that we found out where she is, I don’t know that this is going to change that.”
To date, no one has been charged in Birgfeld’s disappearance. Authorities are hopeful that the remains and personal effects found at the scene will provide clues that will lead to an arrest in the case.
