• Human Skull Found In Front Yard
    It's not a happy ending, but authorities believe they've found the remains of a man who went missing in the Twisp area two years ago. The Okanogan County Sheriff's office believes the remains are that of 21-year old Nicholas Tortora of Twisp.  Chief Deputy Dave Rodriguez says authorities were tipped off about the bones when Twisp Police Chief Paul Budrow noticed a human skull in his front yard. Budrow lives four miles south of Twisp off highway 153. Deputies later combed the area and found more human bones a half mile south from Budrow's property in a heavily wooded area. But as to why Tortora disappeared, Rodriguez says foul play has been ruled out.  An autopsy to determine the exact cause of death has not yet been scheduled.
