On today’s date at 7:18 pm the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a plane that had gone down in a field approximately ¼ mile north of Harriet Alexander Field, which is just west of Salida, Colorado.

Chaffee County Sheriff personnel responded to the scene and found a single engine Cessna 210 in the middle of a hay meadow. The pilot, Serena Welcher, age 34, from Page Arizona, had walked away from the crash and contacted emergency personnel.

Welcher related that she was in route from Page and was planning to spend the night in Salida. She stated that on approach to the airport she experienced engine failure and lost power and set the plane down in the field making contact with a center pivot sprinkler system causing moderate to severe damage to both the plane and the sprinkler system. Welcher sustained no injuries.

The plane will remain on scene overnight and the NTSB is expected in Salida on Thursday, April 20th, to investigate the accident.

On April 13, 2017 at approximately 2:07 pm the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office received a call of a domestic disturbance between a father and son in the Granite area. The complainant advised that his son, Daniel J Korte, age 36 from Des Moines, Iowa was very intoxicated and had been threatening him with a large knife. The complainant also stated that his son made statements that he would shoot it out with police if they showed up. The complainant advised that his son was extremely agitated and was very delusional and would no doubt show hostility towards law enforcement. The complainant stated that there were firearms in his son’s possession as well in the home.

Deputies from the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and secured a perimeter with the assistance of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Due to the fact that the father was able to leave the home deputies attempted to make contact with the suspect via a cell phone, however this proved fruitless. Based on the threats the suspect made previously, the fact that he was armed and due to his aggressive nature the Chaffee County Tac Team was called to respond.

Upon arrival the tac team secured the perimeter and attempted to make contact with the suspect once again. After several attempts failed a percussion grenade was used outside the residence in an attempt to rouse the suspect in case he was sleeping due to his level of intoxication. A short time later the suspect came to the door but refused to come out stating that the only way he was coming out was if he was shooting. Tac personnel maintained verbal contact and were eventually able to persuade the suspect to exit the residence where he was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was secured and was being led to a police vehicle when he became violent and kicked one of the tac team members in the face. The subject was then restrained further and was transported to the Chaffee County Detention Facility.

Daniel Korte will be charged with Felony Menacing, Assault to a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.

A search of the residence revealed that Korte was in possession of firearms in the residence, one of which was a loaded shotgun next to the door where he threatened to come out shooting.

On April 10, 2017 at 12:58 pm the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office received a call from hikers who stated a party fell while hiking on the south side of Mt Princeton in the Chalk Cliff area.

The Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office along with Chaffee County EMS, Chaffee County Search and Rescue, North and South, and Chaffee Fire immediately responded to the area.

When sheriff personnel arrived they were met by hikers that advised that they were headed up the trail and heard a rock coming from a cliff area just to the west of them. They stated that they then looked up to the area where the rock was rolling and observed a male falling down the slope. They advised that this same male was now lying at the foot of the cliff and was being attended to by his two friends who were climbing with him.

Emergency personnel headed into the area and contacted two parties who were with an injured male, later identified as Matthew Wayne Lackey, age 31, from Boulder, Colorado. Mr Lackey was suffering from serious injuries sustained from the fall. Emergency crews immediately began administering first aid to the victim and REACH air ambulance was called to the area, however attempts to treat and revive Mr Lackey failed and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Chaffee County Coroner was called and responded to the scene and took possession of the victim.

Further investigation into the incident revealed that Mr Lackey and his companions were climbing on a rock face with no climbing equipment. The victim grabbed a large boulder dislodging that same rock causing the victim to lose his balance. His companions estimate that the victim fell approximately 40 feet to the ground below and then tumbled an additional 100 feet down a rocky slope. His companions then moved him to flatter ground and awaited arrival of emergency personnel.
