Mystery Remains Following ID of Boulder Creek Body

Siede Preis

A man was stabbed outside a Vernon motel Sunday.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office has identified a man whose body was found at Boulder Creek Elementary School in the Santa Cruz Mountains Monday as 47-year-old William "Bo" Rodman.

      The sheriff's office initially treated the death as a homicide, but it appears that Rodman, who is from Redmond, Ore., died from a pre-existing medical condition and an accidental fall.
     
He spent time in Boulder Creek as a youth and was recently in the Santa Clara area visiting family, but it is not clear what Rodman was doing at the school, according to the sheriff's office.
     
A teacher discovered Rodman's body at about 7:10 a.m. on Monday in front of a classroom on the second floor of a building underneath an overhang, sheriff's Sgt. Dan Campos said. The discovery of the body prompted  the cancellation of classes.
     
Sheriff's deputies responded at about 7:30 a.m. and found Rodman's body with some blood on it, Campos said. Rodman's white Ford pickup truck was found in the school parking lot.
     
The campus is located at 400 Lomond St.
