The coroner’s office has confirmed the body found on the property of McIntosh Dairy in Adams County on Dec 29, is 19-year-old Natalie Bollinger
Authorities in Broomfield, Colorado have released the name of a teenager whose body was found north of Denver on Friday.
The Boulder Daily Camera reports 19-year-old Natalie Bollinger, of Broomfield, was reported missing Thursday and was found dead in a wooded area near a street in unincorporated Adams County the following day.
Sheriff’s officials say her death is being investigated as a homicide but have not said how she was killed.

Broomfield police say they have spoken with a man against whom Bollinger had obtained a permanent restraining order in mid-December, but no arrests have been made.
CBS Denver reports that Bollinger claimed on social media about two weeks ago that she had once tried to help the man, but that he began harassing her. She claimed the man “slept behind her work for weeks” and threatened to kill himself in front of her, the station reports.
Broomfield Police wouldn’t tell the station whether the man was suspected in Bollinger’s death.
Police have positively identified the body found at McIntosh Dairy as missing teen Natalie Bollinger, the Broomfield Police Dept said
Two weeks before her disappearance Natalie took to Facebook, claiming a man she once helped had been harassing her.
Online court records indicate that Bollinger sought a protection order against Schwartz about two weeks ago that was granted one on Dec. 22.
Bollinger claimed Shawn Schwartz drove across the county to see her, and “slept behind her work for weeks.”
She wrote about her repeated attempts to distance herself from Schwartz, after he allegedly threatened to kill himself in front of her.
Schwartz took to Facebook himself, addressing Bollinger’s disappearance.
“The Broomfield Police Department just got ahold of me,” Schwartz said in a Facebook Live post.
Posting on Facebook on Saturday afternoon, Schwartz said he is “still trying to stay out of the way and let the cops do their jobs.”

Broomfield Police told CBS4 they interviewed Schwartz about Natalie’s disappearance. However, they stopped short of saying if he was a suspect, or cleared, in her disappearance.
Schwartz claimed, in his video, that he was not involved in the disappearance, though Bollinger’s family members felt otherwise.
Like others who know Bollinger, Schwartz posted on Facebook, asking anyone with information to contact police.
“Please help find her. Please,” Schwartz said in a video.
“The cause and manner of death are still under investigation. In conjunction with the Broomfield Police Department,” officials with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office stated.
