Autopsy concludes Minden airplane mechanic was murdered

By  | 

MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - An autopsy has concluded that a Douglas
County airplane mechanic whose body was found in the Pine Nut
Mountains in September was murdered.

The autopsy revealed that 50-year-old Robin Boddin was shot four
times in the head.

Results of the autopsy were not released until a toxicology test
came back. The toxicology results recently revealed Bodden did not
have drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.

Bodden was found September tenth one-quarter-mile south of
Sunrise Pass Road in rural Douglas County. That's a couple of miles
east of the airport where he worked.

During their investigation of Bodden's disappearance, deputies
discovered irregularities in his financial records.

His widow, Karen, was jailed in September on charges that she
embezzled thousands of dollars from his business.

Nobody has been charged in Bodden's murder.
