The bodies in the National Forest were a trio living “off the grid” in Colorado

This stock photo shows winter camping in a tent.  A Colorado trio was found dead near a remote campsite, and investigators believe they tried to "live off the web" as they died of exposure and malnutrition during the winter.

Three decomposed and partially mummified bodies discovered in Colorado’s Gunnison National Forest earlier this month have been identified as two adults and a teenager who tried to “live off the web,” according to Gunnison County Coroner Michael Barnes.

As previously reported by USA TODAY, hikers in the Rocky Mountains alerted authorities after stumbling upon a tent with a body outside on July 9. When the sheriff’s office investigated the scene the following day, two more bodies were discovered zipped inside the tent.

The bodies have since been identified as those of Christine Vance, 41, her sister Rebecca Vance, 42, and Rebecca’s 14-year-old son, who has not been named because of his age. All three came from Colorado Springs, Colorado.
