Man claims teen wanted him to kill her

Joseph Michael Lopez, 22, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Natalie Bollinger, 19, on December 28, 2017.

The man arrested in the shooting death of 19-year-old Natalie Bollinger claims Bollinger hired him to kill her after he answered her Craigslist ad titled "I want to put a hit on myself", according to a newly released affidavit.

Lopez said Bollinger told him she wanted to be killed "on her knees... executed from behind", according to the affidavit.

Adams County sheriff Michael McIntosh speaks about the arrest of Joseph Michael Lopez for the murder of Natalie Bollinger as he is flanked by personnel involved in the investigation Ð from left, Sgt. Luis Hernandez, detective Matt Peterson and detective Jai Rogers at the Adams County sheriff's substation on Friday, February 9, 2018.

An autopsy report from the Adams and Broomfield county coroner released February 1 showed Bollinger died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

The suspect told detectives "he was pretty sure he knew what they were there for" and that "he was sure it had to with the girl he talked to on Craigslist", according the arrest affidavit. She'd even brought her own gun, he said. He agreed to meet and kill her after a long conversation via text. Lopez said he tried to change her mind. The coroner's report, signed by Dr. Stephen Cina, also noted "a potentially lethal level of heroin in the blood at the time of death", as well as needle tracks on her body. Lopez then said he closed his eyes as he fired a single shot.

Winter Storm Forecast Improving; Nearly 7 Inches Today, 10+ By Sunday
Angela Lekkas took her children sledding in Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. "This is the first true snowfall of the season". The snow began falling early this morning and it's expected to just get worse as the day progresses, if they are right.

"Just because we have a suspect in custody, doesn't mean the investigation is over", McIntosh said.

The affidavit does not include any evidence of Lopez's claims or how much heroin was in Bollinger's system. And did the suicidal thoughts that friends said Bollinger previously expressed play a role in her death?

Shawn Schwartz was initially said to be a person of interest after Bollinger had posted on Facebook two weeks before her death that he was stalking her.

The report indicates that Bollinger was shot at close range.

Police have since dismissed Schwartz's involvement.

Lopez was booked on first-degree murder and is being held at the Adams County Detention Center. He is in jail with no bond, scheduled to appear in court again on Wednesday in a case that has shaken this part of Colorado since late a year ago.
