Colo. police seek help with high-profile cold case

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado investigators are asking for help finding a man suspected of killing Sid Wells, a 22-year-old college student who was dating actor-director Robert Redford's daughter when he was shot to death three decades ago.

Boulder police issued a statement Wednesday saying they're looking for Thayne Smika, who is still being sought after a murder warrant was issued for his arrest in 2010. They're seeking the public's help on the 30th anniversary of Wells' death.

Wells' brother found his body Aug. 1, 1983, in Wells' condominium. He had been shot in the head with a shotgun.

The case attracted worldwide media attention when Redford halted production of "The Natural," being filmed on location in Buffalo, N.Y., and came to Boulder for Wells' funeral.
