Authorities started fires in heavy brush along the San Juan River near the village of Montezuma Creek in hopes of smoking out a pair of alleged cop-killers believed to be hiding in southeastern Utah's rugged canyon country. The FBI and the Navajo Nation have sought Jason McVean, 26, of Durango, Colo.; and Alan "Monte" Pilon, 30, of Dove Creek, Colo., since May 29. They were among three men wanted for the killing of Cortez, Colo.

As far as hiding places go, this rough-hewn land of remote caves, deep twisting canyons and impenetrable underbrush is as good a place as any to hide. This is where three modern-day desperadoes went to ground, in the rugged badlands of the Four Corners. This is where an eruption of violence on a spring day brought back memories of the region's bloody past: shootouts with lawmen, a frantic chase by a posse and a careening escape across the desert and into the wild.

Authorities scaled back a massive manhunt for two suspected killers believed to be in the red rock canyons of the Four Corners region--a historic hide-out for fugitives. Searchers conceded that the two men may never have been in the Bluff area, and they planned to center the search again in Cortez, Colo. Cortez is where the manhunt began May 29 after three men riddled a police car with automatic weapon fire, killing a police officer who pulled them over for driving a stolen water truck.

A lawman was shot in southeastern Utah on Thursday, and hundreds of police officers combed the area looking for three men accused of killing one officer and wounding two others in a Colorado shootout. San Juan County Deputy Kelly Bradford, who was in critical condition, was responding to a report from a man who said a camouflage-clad gunman had fired at him while he was having lunch along a riverbank.

One of three suspects on the run since a fatal shootout with police in southwestern Colorado last week was found dead Thursday with a gunshot wound to his head. The camouflage-clad body was found near where a police officer--responding to a call that a man had shot at a passerby--was wounded earlier. Two of the suspects in last week's killing of a Cortez, Colo., police officer remained at large.

Navajo trackers joined hundreds of law officers in an expanded search of rugged canyon country where two men suspected of killing a Colorado policeman are believed to be hiding. Searchers that converged on the small town of Bluff when a third suspect turned up dead along a riverbank were moving westward and back toward Colorado. The men being sought were identified as Alan "Monte" Pilon, 30, of Dove Creek, Colo., and Jason Wayne McVean, 26, of Durango, Colo.
