ADAMS COUNTY, CO – A body found in Adams County, Colorado, is believed to be that of a 19-year-old who has been missing since December 28, according to reports.
The Adams County Sheriff’s Office and the Broomfield Police Department are now investigating the apparent murder of Natalie Bollinger — including the chilling Facebook messages she posted a few weeks before her death in which she claimed she was being stalked.
On Friday, a body was located on the property of McIntosh Dairy at 116th and Riverdale.
Though police have not released the identity of the deceased, Bollinger’s father told CBS4 that it was his daughter’s body. He also apparently posted a comment underneath a local TV station’s story covering the disappearance in which he states that his daughter was “murdered,” according to The Count.
The sheriff’s office has also reportedly investigated allegations Natalie wrote on Facebook involving a man she claimed had been harassing her before her disappearance. Natalie wrote in a Facebook post that Shawn Schwartz drove across the country to see her, and “slept behind her work for weeks.”
“When I told him I didn’t want to see him anymore, he sent me hundreds of texts and calls,” she wrote. “He parked his car in front of my house, blocking Military Highway for hours… laying on his horn.. he was arrested. Since then, I’ve asked him to leave me alone … and he won’t.”
Broomfield Police told CBS4 they interviewed Schwartz about Natalie’s disappearance, but did not comment on whether or not he is a suspect at this time. To be clear, at this point, Schwartz has not been charged with any crime. That doesn’t mean that some of his online rants directed toward Natalie aren’t disturbing, however.
Schwartz posted his own Facebook video urging friends to help find Natalie, and indicated that he was not involved in the disappearance.
“Laws don’t mean s*** in the court of public opinion,” he wrote on Facebook. He also posted that the police had questioned him for several hours. “I spent a lot of time at the cop shop today trying to help,” he wrote. “Cops scratched me off their list.”
The following video was posted by Schwartz on Christmas Day, and contains a lot of angry and NSFW language, so play at your own risk.
A comment on the Broomfield Police Department page reads: “Because this is still an active investigation, we can’t comment right now. So as not to jeopardize the investigation, we need to be cautious in releasing information. As soon as possible, information will be updated. Thanks for understanding.”
