DENVER (CBS4)- The family of murder victim Richard Limon has released a statement regarding his memory.
Michelle Limon, Richard’s daughter, sent this statement to CBS4 on Friday:
“I would like to start by saying thank you to the cyclists involved in locating my father Richard Limon. I know it took a lot of courage.
“In addition, our family would like to thank the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office for their persistence in regards to any and all arrests, as well as their empathy and concern towards myself and our family during this difficult time.
“To our community, we would hope any unnecessary comments made in regards to my father be disregarded, and for him to be remembered for the man he was.
“My father, Richard Limon, lived his life passionately as a giving person. We know in our hearts he spent his life sacrificing for others.
“Please allow us our privacy to grieve and mourn for our loss.”
The body of Richard Limon, 69, was discovered on Lookout Mountain on August 17, 2011. Three suspects, Raul Nunez-Soto, Tina Moya and a 17-year-old girl, are currently in custody in the case and are facing murder charges.
Investigators in Jefferson County are looking for a man who they say is a person of interest in the murder case. Edwin Rivera is a person of interest in Limon’s death. Rivera may be known as Ernestor Rivera to some, and he apparently has ties to the La Mara Salvatrucha gang.
They are asking anyone with information about where his might be to contact them.
Rivera was described as being 5-foot-10, weighing 170 pounds and with short brown hair. He has no facial hair and no glasses. He is believed to be about 23 years old.
