Keep a look out for this one-of-a-kind snowboard. Help solve a murder!
The Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office is seeking help in their investigation into the death of a Colorado man.
According to Detective Sergeant Dennis Claman, the body of Benjamin Bradley was found north of Rock Springs on October 1, 2006. He was hitchhiking from Grand County, Colorado, to Jackson, Wyoming, on a snowboarding outing when he disappeared in the Rock Springs area on Friday, June 2, 2006. Bradley, a committed snowboarding enthusiast, was a white male, 28 years of age, 6'3" in height, weight about 160 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. He was dressed in brown wool cargo-pocket pants, a blue hooded sweat shirt, and a grey t-shirt.
Bradley had with him his custom-made, one-of-a-kind Never Summer "split-board" snowboard, a representation of which is pictured here. According to Claman, the snowboard splits into two short skiis, permitting the user to climb up slopes. The split board can then be reassembled and used as a conventional downhill snowboard. Claman said the snowboard has a black bottom bearing red, dripping letters "NS." The board's upper side is blue with a white mountain scene.
Bradley's snowboard has not been recovered, and the case is being investigated as a homicide. Anyone with information concerning Bradley, pictured here, or his snowboard is encouraged to contact the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office at (307) 872-6350, the Rock Springs or Green River Police Departments, or local law enforcement.

Yeah, I read this in the paper the other day. Hope they catch the bastards. Everyone on this forum should keep an eye out for that board. NS splits are one of a kind so it would be a pretty big clue... My partner has one that is similar. Hitching in Wyoming is sketchy especially around rock springs. So many lowlife redneck truckers, just buy a bus ticket.
