Just curious as I didnt see any mention of this. My sisters cleaning crew at Timberline told her about it then I found several articles on theintermountain.com.

Very strange case to say the least. 2 guys from Brazil (by way of Florida) raped a 13 year old girl in the parking lot one afternoon.

Go to website for intermountain and search for Timberline. Will bring up all the stories.

This is most unfortunate, but the Ski Patrol seemed to handle the situation (which is hardly a part of their traditional duties) exceptionally well. We're fortunate indeed to have such a professional NSP group at the mountain. They apparently apprehended the perpetrators until law enforcement from Parsons could get to the scene:


After the alleged incident, the girl sought help from the resort's ski patrol who then contacted the state police. The ski patrol were able to detain Costa and Diniz until the officers arrived.


BTW, for next season, we should have a federal law enforcement officer living on Freeland Rd near the refuge. I don't know if this person will be able to respond to non Wildlife Refuge emergencies but he will at least reinforce the "very thin blue line" of law enforcement that exists in Tucker County. I hope with the increases in property taxes, we can get a permanent sherrif's deputy to patrol the Davis/Thomas/CV area SOON! We need one and its a good job for a local citizen.

Yup, they don't call Tucker County the "wild west" for no reason. I know T-line has their own security person on staff in the evenings, or used to. Getting law-men/women to respond in that area of Tucker County can take 30 to 50 minutes depending upon where the squad car is at any given time. State Police can be even worse. Given all things, the valley folk do a good job maintaining security where needed and there is always someone ready to step in and help in an emergency.
