Boise Police: Cold Case is Warming Up

Posted By on Mon, Nov 28, 2011 at 11:05 AM

Boise Police say they have reason to believe that the mysterious disappearance of a Boise man, seven years ago this week, was foul play.

Ahren "Benji" Barnard was last seen Dec. 4, 2004, at a McDonald's restaurant at South Cole and West Overland roads. But an anonymous letter recently received by police is giving detectives new leads to follow.

"That letter seems to validate what we've thought all along," said Sgt. Mark Barnett of the Boise Police Violent Crimes Unit. "There are individuals who have information on this case who have not yet come forward."

Meanwhile, Lamar Advertising has donated space on several Boise digital billboards that include a photo of Barnard and the Crime Stoppers phone number: 208-343-COPS.
