The family of a Longmont Marine who died last year hopes exhuming his body this week will provide some answers about his death.

Marine Lance Cpl. Riley Schultz, 19, was found with a gunshot wound to the head March 15, 2019, at Camp Pendleton, a Marine Corps base in San Diego County, Calif. Schultz had been serving with 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion. While the Marine Corps’ lead medical examiner ruled last year that Schultz’s death was a suicide, his family doesn’t believe that’s the cause.
