Westminster police tell 11 News they are working harder than ever to find the suspect responsible for the death of Jessica Ridgeway, but fear the case could become more difficult to solve as time goes on.

In the wake of Jessica's memorial service and funeral, the FBI says they are concerned the search for her killer could become even more difficult if it doesn't stay in the public eye.

Westminster police say they are still accepting tips and they are working feverishly to go through the hundreds of tips and potential suspect information they have. It is still considered a very active and fluid case.

Right now details of those tips have not been released, but a retired FBI agent shared his experience with our sister station KCNC in Denver.

“They may have no suspects,” said Kenneth Lanning, a retired FBI behavior analyst who is now a consultant specializing in crimes against children. “But likely at this point, they have so many suspects and now they’re trying to sort through them.”

Investigators are also continuing to gather information from Jessica's body and the areas they are canvassing.

And with someone out there targeting children, police are making any child luring calls a top priority.

If you have any information to help track down the suspect in the Jessica Ridgeway investigation, call the Westminster Police Department at 303-658-4336.
