Family remembers slain Colo. pizza delivery driver

A memorial service is being held for a Colorado pizza delivery driver who authorities believe was shot to death by the man suspected of killing the state’s prisons chief.

The service for 27-year-old Nathan Leon, a married father of three, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Wednesday in Lafayette.

The Commerce City man was reported missing after leaving to make a pizza delivery March 17. Police later found his body with gunshot wounds in Golden.

Denver police say they’re confident the suspect in Leon’s death is the same man who was killed in a shootout with Texas authorities last week. El Paso County sheriff’s officials say the gun that suspect Evan Ebel (EE’-bul) used in Texas was the same weapon used in the death of Colorado Department of Corrections director Tom Clements on March 19.

Investigators are trying to determine whether Leon’s slaying was to procure a pizza box and Domino’s Pizza uniform to help persuade Clements to open his front door.
