BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- A goat head that was found in a cemetery contained a threat to a judge, CBS Denver station KCNC-TV reports.
The severed head was discovered over the weekend at the Olinger Evergreen Cemetery in Broomfield.
KCNC-TV confirmed it contained a threat against Magistrate Frances Simonet, who oversees juvenile cases in Adams County.
An increase in security measures has been taken at the Adams County courthouse as a result.
Court officials told KCNC-TV that police are close to making an arrest, believing the suspect had a case before the judge.
