John Mike Crites

On October 5, 2011, two forest service workers made a gruesome discovery when they stumbled upon a garbage bag filled with dismembered human remains on MacDonald Pass 

The incomplete skeleton was identified as the remains of John “Mike” Crites, a Helena area man who had been missing for several months. His severed head was discovered on the other side of MacDonald pass several months later. To this day, no one has been charged for his murder.  

If you have any information, please call the Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's Office at (406)447-8293 or Helena Crimestoppers at (406)443-2000.
