  • Case History

    The victim was found deceased in a train boxcar in a railroad yard in north Fort Collins. He had sustained massive blunt trauma injuries to the head, consistent with being caught in the slamming door of the boxcar of an abruptly stopping train.

    The train arrived in Denver from New Mexico on September 15, 1994, before arriving in Fort Collins at 2:00 AM on September 16th.

    He is believed to be an illegal immigrant coming from Mexico, and had possibly been living a transient lifestyle.

    Some agencies list October 16, 1994 as the date of discovery.
