David Hartley died on Sept. 30 while on Falcon Lake. His wife, Tiffany Hartley, says he was shot in the head. She now lives in La Salle, Colo.

David Hartley's body has not been recovered and his wife has repeatedly asked for governmental help to get his body back.

On March 30, she sent a letter to Hickenlooper (D-Colorado), asking for his help.

Friday, letters signed by Hickenlooper, Udall (D-Colorado), Bennet (D-Colorado) and Gardner (R-Colorado) were sent to the U.S. Departments of State and Justice.

"While Ms. Hartley recognizes the complicated nature of this situation because it happened on the Texas/Mexico border, she has been unable to obtain any recent updates from the FBI regarding the progress of the case," the letters say. "Moreover, the inability to recover her husband's remains has created numerous difficulties for Ms. Hartley because she cannot obtain a death certificate. She has sought help from the State Department, including the U.S. Consulate in Matamoros, regarding this issue, but has so far been unable to gain final closure."
