Birth: Sep. 19, 1985
Death: Mar. 17, 2013
Jefferson County
Colorado, USA

Nathan Leon, 27, of Commerce City died on Sunday, March 17, 2013 in Golden, CO. He was a delivery driver for a Domino's Pizza store in North Denver. He went to make a delivery but then did not return to work that night.

Later that night the body of a young man was found on the edge of a soccer field in Golden which was later confirmed to be him. He was found shot to death.

Nathan is survived by his wife, his 6-year-old daughter, and 4-year-old twin daughters. He was a wonderful father and husband who worked two jobs to support his family. His family is devastated, horrified, and cannot believe he is gone, and they can't imagine that the motive could have been robbery because drivers are not aloud to have a lot of cash on them.

Nathan's murder is also related to another murder just two days later. The murder of the executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections, Tom Clements, happened in his own home. He was shot to death after opening his front door on March 19.

On March 21 a high speed case in Texas lead to a suspect. The high speed chase in Texas ended with both a sheriff's deputy and the suspect being shot. Eventually the suspect crashed the car he was driving in Decatur, Texas. During the high-speed chase, the suspect was shot in the head and was taken to an area hospital. The suspect is brain dead and declared legally deceased. The deputy shot was taken to a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

When police opened the car trunk they found a Domino's Pizza box and the company logo jacket that belonged to Nathan.
