NORTH DENVER -- Four days after being murdered while on a Dominos delivery, the family and friends of a 27-year-old are hoping community pressure will find an unknown killer.

Nathan Leon, whose body was found in Golden late Sunday, was a husband and father of three who vanished while delivering a pizza ordered from a customer inside a Commerce City gas station. That customer allegedly asked for the pizza to be delivered to a remote industrial area in North Denver where police later found the delivery vehicle abandoned.

"I think the shock is over and now the anger is setting in," said Erin Oswalt, the victim's sister-in-law during a small memorial on Wednesday afternoon.

Denver Police have not named any suspects or released a description of the killer, but family members are hoping through media outreach new tips will be phoned in.

"Nate didn't have any enemies, he wasn't that kind of guy," added fellow family members.

Dominos and Crime stoppers are offering a $7,000 reward for information in the case. Family members have also setup a donation account at Bank of the West under Nathan Leon. A funeral is expected to be held on March 27th in Lafayette.

If you have information, police are urging you to call Crime Stoppers at (720) 913-7867. You can also send information via text to 274637.
