Ian Perlmutter, my brother, died early Saturday morning. Investigators have NOT been able to rule out murder. I’ve been receiving condolences, which I appreciate, BUT I would rather direct resources and energy toward the investigation itself. If this was in fact a murder, the investigation is HIGHLY time sensitive. He died in Louisville, Colorado, a small town near Boulder, and I’m concerned there are not sufficient resources and expertise for a complete investigation (with all respect to the investigators) – in particular, a sophisticated forensics laboratory is crucial to uncovering the truth behind his death. Again, rather than send condolences, I would prefer help with any of the following (or if you have a unique approach, feel free to share):
- Recruiting private investigators – either local or non-local.
- Recruiting forensics experts.
- I’m considering putting out a bounty, but would want to structure it effectively (so to not incentive fake news). Do you have any ideas on how to do this intelligently?
- Colorado press is highly dysfunctional (google “Colorado Sun”). If you know anyone in Colorado, please share this article with them, as awareness will help draw out witnesses: http://www.dailycamera.com/louisville-news/ci_31953772/ian-perlmutter-train-death-louisville
