All of the investigators met at the crime scene to determine primary jurisdiction in the case and to assist each other. After all investigators did a walkthrough of the crime scene it was determined that the jurisdiction belonged to the FBI. While the five investigators surveyed the crime scene a discussion took place among them. My partner and I learned the following from that discussion. Marshal Duschene advised that Anthony ‘Tony’ Zepanski is a non-Indian and was renting the house on the SUIR, CO, near the town of Ignacio, CO. Zepanski moved from Tucson, Arizona to Colorado over a year ago.
He had been a minor drug user. He was never a drug dealer. His drug use led to his divorce and he had to come to Colorado for a fresh start. Zepanski did not presently own a vehicle and did not have telephone service at his house. He lived somewhat of a hippie life style and earned money through odd jobs such as woodcutting. This past summer the Southern Ute Tribe employed him as a supervisor of a youth work program. Zepanski had the reputation of being very hospitable and a excellent cook. He often invited friends over for a meal.

Agent Silverheels identified the female victim as Colleen Browning. She resided in the town of Ignacio, Colorado and is part Tlingit Indian. She was employed as a part-time teller at the bank of Ignacio and she was attending Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO. Browning had the reputation of being a very nice young lady. Everyone at the crime scene, who knew her, was surprised to see her as a crime victim. Zepanski apparently liked her and had met her at the bank where he had a checking account It appeared from the crime scene that Zepanski had invited browning to his home for a meal.
After the initial survey of the scene, the formal crime scene investigation was initiated. The first key pieces of evidence were located next to the dirt driveway in front of the house, i. e a Colorado hunting license (Copy Attached) in the name of Terry Irvin, six Winchester . 357 magnum shell casings and tire tracks. Following the discovery of the Colorado hunting license and the Winchester . 357 shell casings a conversation took place among the five investigators. My partner and I learned the following additional information from Marshal Duschene and Agent Silverheels.
Marshal Duschene identified Terry Irvin as a prominent citizen of Ignacio, CO, and that he is an unlikely suspect in this case. Marshal Duschene advised that he has known Mr. Irvin for many years and that he is the owner/operator of irvins Rocket Chevron in Ignacio, CO. Marshal Duschene said that one week prior Irvin’s ? ton green Chevrolet truck was stolen from his residence. Other items in the truck included Irvin’s wallet containing the Colorado hunting license, chevron credit card, Sinclair credit card $100 in cash, driver’s license, and a Smith & Wesson . 57 Magnum revolver. Marshal Duschene stated that a copy of the Auto Theft Report is available at his office in Ignacio, Colorado. He also stated that he has identifying information on the two individuals that reported the double homicide to him, i. e. Mr. Richard Betcher and Ms. Nancy Stuart. Agent Silverheels said, after the hearing Marshal Duschene’s remarks about the stolen truck, that recalled that there has been a rumor on the SUIR that some guy named ‘Smith’ had been driving around the reservation in a green truck.
