Melvin LeRoy Pooley Jr. walked to his dadís pickup truck, sat inside and waited for him to finish drinking beer in a bar with his pals on a Friday night.

By the time his father, Melvin LeRoy Pooley Sr., returned to the parking lot of Four Wheel Drive Pickup and Truck Sales on West Evans Avenue, where he had left his son, his green 1960s-model International pickup and 14-year-old son were gone.

It wouldnít be for another three months before Pooley Jr.ís body was found, washed up on the bank of the South Platte River near the 2700 block of South Platte River Drive. A steel band had been wrapped around Pooley Jr.ís neck and tied to cinder blocks. Poole said he believed that whoever stole his pickup had murdered his son.
