Larry Fuller, 49, was shot and killed while walking home from the Sidekick Bar in Ignacio on Jan. 1, 2009.

IGNACIO, Colo — More than 14 years after a father of four was fatally shot just hours into the new year, investigators are still seeking clues about his killer.

Larry Fuller, 49, was shot and killed while walking home from the Sidekick Bar in Ignacio in the very early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2009, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

Ignacio is a small town in La Plata County that is southeast of Durango. CBI and the Ignacio Police Department are asking for help locating Fuller's killer.

According to CBI, Fuller had been at the bar located at 677 Goddard Ave. with his wife, Paula Silva, when he decided to walk home alone.

While walking home, Fuller, a diesel mechanic, was shot in the 300 block of Goddard Avenue. He died at the scene. Fuller, a father of four, had moved to Colorado in 2000.
