The Weld County Sheriff's Office is asking for information regarding Nathan Combs, 49, of Burns, found near this Blue 2007 Peterbilt 379 at Weld County Road 136 and Weld County Road 77 west of Hereford on May 18, 2017.

Two months after the death of Burns resident, Nathan Combs, the investigation is still ongoing but unresolved and the Weld County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) is asking anyone with information that might aid in the investigation to come forward.

Combs was found by his found near his Blue 2007 Peterbilt 379 at Weld County Road 136 and Weld County Road 77 west of Hereford two months ago on May 18, 2017.

Officers were dispatched to the scene at 3:20 p.m. on that date and according to information disseminated by the WCSO, the initial examination at the scene, suggested that Combs was performing maintenance on the truck when the vehicle unexpectedly moved and that Combs was possibly run over by it. Combs was pronounced dead at the scene.

Upon further investigation sheriff's deputies determined that Combs had not been run over by his vehicle but had, in fact, suffered an apparent gun shot wound and evidence at the scene indicated that this wound was not self-inflicted.

According to Corporal Matt Turner Public Information Officer for the WCSO, no new information is available to the public at this time. However, they are calling on the community for any information that might help bring justice to the Combs family and are asking that anyone who might have any information to contact them at 970-356-4015 or the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or 1-800-444-3776.
