Boulder County Coroner Emma Hall has identified a 37-year-old man found dead last week in his Boulder-area mobile home as Edgar Olivas.
Sheriff's deputies were called at 10 a.m. Jan. 3 to the San Lazaro mobile home park at 55th Street and Valmont Road in unincorporated Boulder County on reports of a man who was unresponsive, according to officials.
When they arrived, they found Olivas dead inside his mobile home with a gunshot wound to his chest.
Investigators determined that Carla Maria Bencomo, 34, was with him at the time he was shot. Bencomo was arrested on suspicion of criminally negligent homicide, but at a court hearing Tuesday, she was only charged with tampering with physical evidence and attempting to influence a public official. Bencomo is being held at the Boulder County Jail on $250,000 bond.
The coroner has not reached a determination on the cause and manner of Olivas' death.
