Drowning victim's debit card used in Iowa

BOULDER - Police are looking to identify two men they believe used a debit card belonging to a man who drowned in Boulder Creek back in June.

The body of Gavin Bolen was found floating in Boulder Creek in the area of 49th and Pearl Streets on June 24. The Fenton, Michigan man had been traveling through Boulder with friends.

Boulder police are continuing to investigate Bolen's death. Two items have turned up from Bolen's wallet: an insurance card, which was found along Boulder Creek near the University of Colorado's practice facility, and a debit card. The debit card was used after Bolen's death at a coffee shop in Lyons and at a gas station in Adair, Iowa.

Detectives have obtained security photos from the gas station in Iowa which show two men, driving what appears to be an older-model, red Toyota 4-Runner. It's not known how these men came into possession of Bolen's debit card.

Police believe the men may have been in Boulder during the third week in June, and that they likely spent time with transients on the Pearl Street Mall and near Boulder Creek.

Investigators are trying to identify the two men and ask that anyone with information about their identities or whereabouts contact Detective Chuck Heidel at 303-441-3339.

Those who have information but wish to remain anonymous may contact the Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-444-3776.
