COMMERCE CITY — Police continue to hunt for clues in the June 3 murder of a business owner after one of their main leads turned up empty.    

Dung Le, 39, of Denver, was found shot inside the the Dollar Value Plus store, 5765 E. 63rd Place, about 1 p.m., June 3. He was transported to an area hospital where he died. Police said they believe he was shot between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.    

Police released what they believed to be a major clue last week, video and a still image of a white Comcast-type van leaving the parking lot of the business between the suspected time of the murder. However, police said the driver of the vehicle came forward Friday after seeing the image broadcast in the media.    

Commerce City Police Det. Mike Saunders said the driver was interviewed and ruled out as a suspect. Police would not comment on any new information the man provided in regards to the murder. The announcement came a day after Le’s family, came forward in a press conference to plead for any information related to his death. A $1,500 reward has been offered for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved.
