An investigation is underway after a 20-year-old woman was stabbed to death at a home on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation in southwestern Colorado.

Jeff Dorschner, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, says no arrests have been made in early Monday's death of Keisha Meya Colorow, of Towaoc. The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the FBI are investigating the death.

The Cortez Journal reports that, according to Colorow's obituary, she was the great-great granddaughter of Jack House, a traditional Ute Mountain Ute chief.

Investigators have not said what led to the stabbing.
