Case History
On June 12th, 2002, the body of the victim was found on a walking trail up Jacobs Gulch. He had died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the right side of his head. The gun, recovered from beneath the body, was a 9mm semiautomatic Smith & Wesson Model 915. He was well dressed, well nourished and did not appear to be a transient type person.
Fingerprint comparisons against missing men from several surrounding states produced no leads.
The gun used was traced to a man who had sold the gun in Houston, Texas in 1996. He has since destroyed the records of that sale.
