Human remains found near Rawlins identified as hunter who went missing in 2019

CHEYENNE Wyo. — Human remains discovered last week in a wooded area south of Rawlins have been identified as Mark Strittmater, a hunter who went missing three years ago, the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office announced Wednesday.

There is no evidence of foul play, the CCSO said.

The discovery of a firearm by hunters in the area on Sunday, October 16, lead to the search. The remains were found in a densely wooded area about 325 yards from the initial missing-person searches carried out three years ago.

The identification was made through dental records.

The CCSO said it is pleased to have some resolution in the long-running case, and extends its sympathies to Strittmater’s family and friends.
