Bollinger was reported missing on December 28, and deputies found her body on December 29. The cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head, but she also had a potentially lethal level of heroin in her system, according to reports.

As McIntosh was doing his briefing, Lopez was making his first appearance in court in Adams County. McIntosh said their relationship did not appear to be sexual. She and Lopez texted each other 119 times on December 28.

Police identified Lopez as a person of interest via phone records, and when they approached him to talk about the case, they say he replied that "he was pretty sure he knew what we were there for", the affidavit stated.

"As you can imagine, a 19-year-old's social media or phone, there's a lot of data there", Adams County Sheriff Michael McIntosh told KMGH Denver 7.

An affidavit released Friday evening states that Lopez told detectives that Bollinger had hired him to kill her after he responded to her ad on Craigslist, according to Denver 7. Lopez told police that he meant to meet up with Bollinger and convince her not to kill herself, the affidavit stated.

According to court documents, investigators found more than 100 text messages between Bollinger and Lopez from the night Bollinger was reported missing.

Adams County sheriff's investigators allege the man accused of killing Natalie Bollinger initially denied seeing her die and then changed his story to say she killed herself before telling police that he killed her because she solicited someone on Craigslist to help her commit suicide.

Lopez eventually admitted to pulling the trigger, though he initially claimed he did not go through with the hit. He then claimed they both said a prayer, he got up, closed his eyes and shot the teen.

They prayed together before Lopez allegedly fired off the fatal shot. And did the suicidal thoughts that friends said Bollinger previously expressed play a role in her death? Others said she was happy and looking forward to going to school.

Sheriff Michael McIntosh said Friday at a news conference that detectives wanted to question Lopez after they examined Bollinger's cellphone.

Mr Lopez says Bollinger "knelt down on the ground and that he knelt down along her left side and slightly in front of her".

Before Lopez's arrest, Schwartz was said to have been connected to the girl's murder although he posted on Facebook that he was innocent.

'He drove across the country to see me ... slept behind my work for weeks.

When Bollinger was reported missing, suspicion found Shawn Schwartz, a man whom Bollinger had been granted a restraining order against in December, the Daily Camera reports.

That man had nothing to do with the murder, McIntosh said. He has been booked into the Adams County Jail. A bond has not been set.
