Michael Hahn - The Pueblo Chieftain - December 21 2001 - 2 men killed in head-on collision near Las Animas - LAS ANIMAS - Two men died and their passengers were injured, one critically, in a head-on collision east of Las Animas on Wednesday night. Killed in the crash were Steven Campos, 30, of Las Animas, and Michael Hahn, 53, of Springfield. Campos' wife Jennifer, 22, and Hahn's wife Linda, 54, both suffered serious injuries and were taken to St. Anthony Hospital in Denver after being treated at a La Junta hospital. Linda Hahn was in the intensive care unit Thursday with multiple traumas, and was listed in critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Jennifer Campos was listed in fair condition with multiple injuries. The Colorado State Patrol reported receiving a call about 8:30 p.m. from a citizen who said Campos was driving slowly and weaving. Trooper Douglas Bremer spotted Campos' Ford Taurus about 20 minutes after that call, on U.S. 50 near Rocky Ford. He attempted to stop the car, but the driver took off at high speeds and a pursuit began. Bremer stopped the chase near the La Junta city limits, but Campos continued driving at a high speed through La Junta and on toward Las Animas, veering into traffic and running other drivers off the road, according to the report. About 7 1/2 miles east of Las Animas, Campos swerved into the westbound lane and collided head-on with a Plymouth van driven by Michael Hahn, the patrol said. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers estimated Campos' speed at 100 mph; while Hahn was estimated to be going about 40 mph when the crash occurred about 9:30 p.m. Patrol spokesman Richard Breece said the initial sighting of the vehicle is being investigated as a domestic violence incident in progress in the Campos car. The patrol has not determined whether alcohol was involved in the crash.

Orville Halsey was shot and killed July 12, 1990 by Thomas D. Ferrero, along the fence line between the two ranches near Pryor. Ferrero was sentenced following a jury trial in Walsenburg to a life term in the Limon Corrections facility for the murder. Now, Houston trial lawyer, Jim Tatum, who owns a ranch near the Halsey's, has filed a wrongful death action against Ferreros. Besides Ferrero, the suit names his wife, Carmela; their son, Michael and his wife, Virginia. It claims all were involved in the incident and asks the maximum $50,000 allowable under state law. Also, the Ferreros have filed a countersuit against Mrs. Halsey, her daughters, Shirley and Lynette and the owner of the ranch where Halsey worked, Robert Ingram. The suit claims the killing was self-defense and a wrongful death suit is unjustified. Attorney for the Ferrero family is David Graham of Taos. Orville Halsey - Huerfano World - October 4, 1990 - Murder Trial -Up to two weeks have been set aside by District Judge Claude Appel for the murder trial of Rancher Thomas Ferrero, charged with the shooting death of his neighbor, Orville Halsey July 12. The trial is set to open on Dec. 3 with prospective jurors to be called Sept. 27 to answer questionnaires. Jurors will be sequestered during the trial according to a ruling by Judge Appel on Tuesday. Appel denied a request for separate trials on charges for Ferrero and gave the defense five days to file written motions asking for the personnel files of fired Huerfano County Deputy Sheriff Ernie Pino, who videotaped the aftermath of the incident. The defense has five days after that filing to protest in writing. Ferrero is also charged with menacing in the incident. He is being represented by Public Defender Victor Reyes of Pueblo. El Paso County District Attorney John Suthers is prosecuting the case for the state.

Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton - Huerfano World - March 29, 1990 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1909: Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton, born in Walsenburg in 1875, died. She was the daughter of Mrs. M. R. Arnold and was said to be the first American child born here. Her sisters Emma O. Dartey and Mrs. Adolph Unfug and brother Walter of Rouse survive. [Editor's Note: Isabelle Arnold Hamilton died March 20, 1909. Obituary listed Walsenburg World, March 25, 1909, Page 1.] Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton - Huerfano World - March 29, 1990 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1909: Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton, born in Walsenburg in 1875, died. She was the daughter of Mrs. M. R. Arnold and was said to be the first American child born here. Her sisters Emma O. Dartey and Mrs. Adolph Unfug and brother Walter of Rouse survive. [Editor's Note: Isabelle Arnold Hamilton died March 20, 1909. Huerfano World 3-25-1909 - First American Child Born In Walsenburg Dies - Died, at Pueblo, Colo., on Saturday March 20, 1909, Mrs. Isabelle Arnold Hamilton, aged 33 years, 10 months and 11 days. Mrs. Hamilton was born and reared in Walsenburg, being, so far as known, the first American child born in the town. She was born on May 9, 1875, and lived here until the time of her marriage, in January 1899, to Mr. Alburtus Hamilton, a railroad man, who took his bride to Pueblo, where they have since resided. Bell Arnold, as she was familiarly known, was one of the most popular of the young set of the town a decade ago. She was vivacious and open hearted, the life of nearly all social events. Besides the husband, two children survive her, Elsie and Brittain. The body was brought to Walsenburg Sunday for burial and funeral services were held from the home of Mr. Adolph Unfug on Monday afternoon. In attendance at the funeral were Mrs. Hamilton's mother, Mrs. M.R. Arnold of Pueblo and the sisters, Mrs. Emma C. Dartey of Pueblo, and Mrs. Adolph Unfug of this place, and the brother, Walter Arnold of Rouse. To her, the struggle and burden bearing of earth are ended, and we confidently trust that like one who awakes from a troubled dream she has awakened to see life's endless morning break and knows herself at home with all the vast throng of loved ones, missed from earth, safe about her. Her home instincts were strong here in this fevered world of disappointment. Her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding. Gone out of our sight! But because life and love are stronger than death she is still ours. She is still the mother of her dear children upon whom she doted with such clinging fondness, and the companion still of him who mourns earth's greatest loss, and may she not by this transition wield over them a stronger force for goodness and truth before.

Hanson, Thomas Martin
Thomas M. Hanson – Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph – December 30, 1973 – Third Lawman Slain – Three lawmen were killed in Colorado last week, two killing suspects are dead, and law officials are looking for two suspects in the first incident. The dead law officials are: 1. Colorado State Patrolman Thomas Carpenter, 31, murdered in his patrol car Thursday morning in Denver. Carpenter, father of three children, had served on the patrol since 1968. He was the fifth patrolman to be slain in the line of duty. 2. Otero County Deputy Sheriff Larry Smith, 23, was gunned down Friday by a 12-gauge shotgun blast as he went to a home in La Junta to answer a disturbance call. He was a 1963 graduate of La Junta High School, and unmarried. He was the son of La Junta fire chief, Wayne Smith. 3. Pueblo Police Officer Thomas M. Hanson, 36, was killed when he stopped at a store to buy a carton of milk and came upon a holdup in progress. Investigators said that Patrolman Carpenter was shot with his own service revolver. He was shot four times in the back of the head. Denver police found his body seated upright in his patrol car, which was parked in the rear of an apartment complex in the Monbello area of northeast Denver. Denver police questioned Robert L. Chance, 18, of Aurora Friday regarding the slaying but later released him after he took a lie detector test. Chance had been arrested on a fugitive warrant for a traffic violation. Police chief Art Dill said the youth was questioned in Carpenter's death because his appearance resembled the rough description of one of two suspects in the case. District Attorney Dale Tooley said homicide detectives were pressing their investigation of the homicide, but had "no suspect against whom they expected to file charges." Officials believe Carpenter was kidnapped by his assailants prior to his death. Although there were no witnesses to the shooting, motorists reported seeing a cruiser in the vicinity with two young men accompanying the officer in the car. Keith said Carpenter is thought to have been stopped on the Denver-Boulder Turnpike at Broadway about 9 a.m. Carpenter, who had been with the patrol five years and was stationed in the Broomfield district, normally patrolled Interstate 25 north of Denver. State Patrol officers will act as pallbearers for the 1 p.m. Monday funeral at the Bethel Temple, with the Denver Police Department providing the color guard. Representatives of numerous other Colorado law enforcement agencies also are expected to be in attendance. Deputy Smith died in the backyard of the Otero home in an exchange of gunfire with James Nunnaley, 21, who La Junta police officials said had earlier in the day threatened to "kill a couple of cops." The deputy was able to return the fire before he died and hit Nunnaley, said police. Nunnaley never regained consciousness after the shooting and died in a Pueblo hospital. Funeral services for Smith are scheduled Monday in La Junta. Hanson, the Pueblo policeman unexpectedly walked into the middle of a holdup and was shot to death. The gunman also was killed when the patrolman's partner fired three shots through a plate glass window. Police Chief Bud Willoughby said Bernard Meehan, 19, of Pueblo, died 3 ½ hours after the incident at Parkview Hospital. Meehan, who never regained consciousness, was hit three times in the back. Willoughby said Hanson and his partner, Patrolman James Askay, 29, had driven up to a 7-11 store at 2 a.m. so that Hanson could buy a carton of milk. Askay remained outside in the car. Hanson walked in, found no one around and apparently was about to walk outside again when a gunman emerged from behind a counter and ordered him to lie on the floor. Authorities said Hanson may have made a move for his service revolver as the gunman approached him. The bandit then fired once, morally wounding the officer. Askay fired three times through a glass window at the gunman with each shot hitting its mark. Police said a second man apparently involved in the holdup drove away when he saw the officers. He drove to a nearby Catholic Church where he asked a priest for help, but fled on foot when the priest called police. The killings brought these comments Saturday from law officials in Colorado Springs: Dist. Atty. Bob Russel said, " State patrolmen are very susceptible as they usually stop people for traffic violations and are unaware of potential problems they may be confronting. Most police throughout the nation are in great danger when they are handling disturbance calls dealing with domestic relations which is what happened in La Junta." This of course also applies to the sheriff's office. Russel said that "in Colorado we have been lucky judging from national figures of officers who have been murdered." He added that he did not believe there was going to be a rash of police killings. Police Lt. Loren Downing said that the three shootings of law enforcement officers in the 48-hour period in the state was enough to make each officer take a second look at his actions for safety reasons. A bus load of Colorado Springs policemen is expected to attend the funerals of the officers in La Junta and Pueblo. At least a car load of off duty officers is expected to attend the funeral of the state patrol officer in Longmont, Downing said. Sergeant H. J. Schafer, El Paso County Sheriff Patrol Commander, said that his deputies have been briefed and alerted to begin taking extreme caution at all calls with major emphasis placed on caution taking when answering family disturbances. He said that the most crucial times of police killings are in the first seven seconds after an officer arrives at the scene, and in a 7 to 22 foot range. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph – January 20, 1974 – 3 Indicted for Slaying of Policeman – Pueblo, Colo. – The Pueblo County statutory grand jury has returned indictments against three youths in connection with the slaying of Pueblo police officer Thomas Hanson Dec. 29. Named in the first-degree murder indictments were Charles D. Salazar, 17; Patrick R. Martinez, 18, and James E. Wallace, 15, all of Pueblo. Bond for the trio was set at $50,000. All three are being held at the county jail. The murder charges arose from an incident at a convenience market in which Hanson was shot and killed by Bernard Meehan, and Hanson's partner, James Askey, in turn shot Meehan dead. The three youths are charged in accordance with a statute providing the filing of murder charges against persons involved in a felony during or after which the death of a non-participant is caused. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - January 22, 1974 - Case Dismissed Against Killer of Pueblo Cop - Bernard Harold Meehan, who shot and killed a police officer in Pueblo and who in turn was shot and killed, had a charge of armed robbery against him plus a second count of conspiracy dismissed in district court Monday. Meehan, 19, of the Lytle Star Route, killed Cpl. Thomas M. Hanson, 29, Dec. 29 during a shootout at a Pueblo 7-Eleven Store. The officer had gone into the store for a carton of milk and observed a holdup in progress. In the exchange of fire which followed, both men were killed. Meehan was out on bond at the time and had been charged in Pueblo with a burglary. Here in Colorado Springs, he had been charged with robbing Kwik Way Store, 425 N. Murray Blvd., while armed with a gun, Oct. 11. On Monday co-defendant Robert Wayne Legg, 22, of Ft. Carson, pleaded guilty when the two counts were amended to simple robbery.

Hardin, Antoinette
Antoinette "Toni" Hardin - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 28, 1976 - Escapee Kills Five; Takes His Own Life - A 23-year-old Colorado State Penitentiary inmate shot himself to death Friday afternoon after a rampage of murder and rape that resulted in the mass slaying of a five-member family in their three-bedroom ranch house a mile south of Penrose. Richard Joseph Turner, who killed all five members of the John E. Hardin family Thursday night, was found shot to death in a stolen pickup truck, Friday afternoon about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest, near Ft. Morgan, roughly 200 miles from the scene of Thursday's murders. Turner died of a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber pistol as sheriff's officers closed in on him after a manhunt that started about 10:30 a.m. Friday, shortly after the bodies of the Hardin family were discovered in their blood-spattered home. Turner, serving an indeterminate-to-five-year sentence for a 1975 Morgan County conviction of "gross sexual imposition," was a trusty at the Fremont County Jail. He was placed there last November for protective custody. Turner was on a work detail at the Hardin ranch at the time of the slayings. Gov. Richard Lamm has ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to Turner being granted trusty status by Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti. The victims were identified as John E. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard who worked in the prison's minimum security section; his wife, Antoinette, or "Toni," 37; and their three children: Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James 2. Authorities said Mrs. Hardin and her two daughters were sexually molested, or raped. Officers said that while fleeing to Ft. Morgan, near his home, Turner took an elderly farm woman and two young girls hostage and raped one of the girls, who was 14 years old. The bodies of Hardin and his wife were found about 9:30 a.m. Friday when a telephone repairman, responding to a phone-off-the-hook service call, opened the garage door. When Fremont County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they found the infant's body in a front bedroom, and the bodies of the teenaged girls in separate bedrooms. Fremont County Coroner Henry Grabow said that late Friday it was known definitely that only one of the victims, one of the daughters, suffered a gunshot wound. He said the scene was so bloody and the wounds were so extensive, that it will take some time to determine if more bullet wounds were involved. He noted that one of the girls had a badly bruised arm, and though he ruled out possible use of a knife, Grabow said the assailant may have also used a weapon other than a gun - perhaps a "blunt" instrument, he said. Grabow said there was no evidence of a struggle. The Hardin children were found in night clothes and the parents were dressed in day clothes, he said. The females were found partially undressed. Grabow said that from his preliminary investigation, "I would guess that everybody was killed before they were (sexually) molested. At least it appears that way." Authorities have not determined the exact time of death, however there is reason to believe that some of the murders occurred about 10:30 p.m. Apparently Hardin and his wife left Turner with their children to go out for a while. The children were apparently killed in the meantime and when the parents returned, the parents were killed while parking their vehicle in the garage. Neighbors were quoted as saying that their dogs barked because of some disturbance about 10:30 p.m. No neighbors heard shots, however. Karl Hodgson, the Mountain Bell employe who first came upon the murder scene, said he first grew suspicious when he found a fun laying on the front yard of the ranch house. Authorities said the gun was a .357 magnum service revolver believed owned by Hardin. But when deputies entered the house, they found that a gun case had been broken into and many other handguns and a number of rifles had been taken. It is believed Turner made his getaway from Fremont County using a 1972 yellow four-wheel-drive pickup truck stolen from Hardin's house. Officers said it is believed to be the truck Turner shot himself in. Thursday's manhunt narrowed when a ranch wife in Morgan County reported to sheriff's officers that a red-haired man driving a four-wheel drive pickup tried to drive across her property. The truck was spotted again north of Sterling, northeast of Ft. Morgan, where the elderly woman and two girls were taken hostage. Turner raped the 14-year-old in a barn, then left alone, officers said. A short while later, Morgan County Deputy Sheriff Leo Barker came upon the vehicle which had overheated and stalled about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest. A farmer, Burlie Segelke, had stopped minutes earlier and tried to get the vehicle started by pushing it. Barker said he ordered Segelke to approach him, then heard a shot inside the cab of the pickup truck. He found Turner dead of a head wound. Barker said he found the pistol, five rifles and a shotgun in the cab. Most of the weapons were cocked and ready to fire, he said. Apparently the weapons were those taken from the Hardin residence. A search airplane with Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents aboard landed in a nearby field just after Turner died. Turner was sentenced in Morgan County to a five-year-to-indefinite sentence at the state prison after pleading guilty to a charge of "gross sexual imposition." That plea was made to a reduced charge stemming from charges of rape and menacing in September 1974 after two teenaged girls from Grand Rapids, Mich., told officers he picked them up in his car near Brush and attacked them on a rural road south of Ft. Morgan. Records also show that in September 1975, while on furlough from the state prison, Turner was charged with assault and battery on a state patrolman at Ft. Morgan after the patrolman stopped his car for a traffic check. Turner was moved from the maximum security unit at the state prison to the Fremont County Jail last Nov. 20 after he witnessed the slaying of another inmate. Turner was released as a trustee to work bailing hay on Hardin's ranch house property. However, it is not known why jail officials did not discover Turner's absence Thursday night. Fremont County Undersheriff Don Cook said the county jail only had one other penitentiary inmate in its custody besides Turner, and that "it's been the practice in the past for these inmates to return to the jail after they have finished working for the day." He said, "I don't know what the arrangement the Sheriff (John Vernetti) made in Turner's case." Vernetti was not at the scene of the murders when reporters were present, and efforts to reach him Friday were unsuccessful. Cook said Vernetti spent much of the day trying to find Hardin's parents, who live in a remote area between Canon City and Westcliffe. The parents were found late in the afternoon. According to Jerry Agee, chief of the state corrections department, Turner was placed on trusty basis Thursday by the sheriff's office and was released to work on Hardin's ranch. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 1, 1976 - Friends Still Asking 'Why?' As Hardin Family is Buried - When Death strikes down the innocent and young, for every fragile form from which he lets the panting spirit free, a hundred virtues rise, in shapes of mercy, charity, and love, to walk the world, and bless it. - Charles Dickens. Rye - Perhaps the anger was still evident deep inside the mourners of the John E. Hardin family. If is was, it was shrouded by sadness for the five slain members. Still the faces of the large gathering expressed disbelief, shock and the tragic realization that their former neighbors and friends were being put to rest. The caskets of Mr. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard, his wife, Antoinette (Toni), 35 and their three children, Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James, 3, were lined up before the approximately 500 in attendance. The funeral services were held Tuesday at the Rye High School gymnasium, the town where Mr. Hardin grew up. Officiating were the Rev. Paul Leaming and Father Ronald Roche. Following the services, interment services were held at the Rye Cemetery. Survivors include Mr. Hardin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin; two daughters by a previous marriage, Janda Sue and Bobbi Jean; two brothers, Frank and Jack Hardin and a sister, Susan Kiner. Mrs. Hardin is survived by her father, Esetuiel Baca; her mother Mrs. Celco Savala; two sons from a previous marriage, Larry and Troy Sanchez; four sisters, Mrs. Stella Castro, Gloria Alarid, Theresa Arudder, and Louise Whitcomb; four brothers, Richardo, Joseph, and Robert Baca and Tim Savala. The tragic events which led to Tuesday's funeral began to unfold last Friday when the family was found murdered in its Penrose home near Canon City. Richard Joseph Turner, who was working on furlough for the Hardins, as a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate, was the object of a state-wide search. He was found shot to death by his own hand, in a stolen pickup truck Friday afternoon near Fort Morgan as sheriff's officers closed in. The mourners paid their final respects to the Hardin family in the tiny town located southwest of Pueblo. Their faces still expressed the question, "Why?" Whatever the reason, or reasons, the killings prompted Gov. Richard Lamm to call a special session of the Colorado Legislature to work out a new plan to increase security at the state's penal institutions. But for the slain family, relatives and friends, it seemed of little consequence Monday. Following the services, the caskets were rolled out to the waiting hearses. As the mourners watched and comforted the family's survivors the bearers, the Fremont County Sheriff's Posse, first carried out the casket of Carol. Lori and her mother were next, then Jimmy and his father, whose casket was draped with the American flag. The tragedy had stunned the state and the funeral drew a few newspeople who, while realizing the touchy and sad situation, were not entirely welcome. A television cameraman, he related later, was approached by a member of the Hardin family and asked, "Why can't you (the news media) leave things be." A newspaper photographer was approached by another woman who asked him, "Do you care so much for your job that you have to do this?" The photographer explained that it wasn't his decision and the woman told him, "Tell your editor to go to hell." The tiny cemetery was soon crowded for the final service which concluded with the honor guard presenting the flag to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin - the final possession of their son's, but not the final memory. The large gathering soon departed leaving the Hardins, a family in life, still together as a family in death. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 2, 1976 - Undersheriff Wanted to Resign Prior to Hardin Murders, Sheriff Declares - Canon City - Fremont County Undersheriff Raymond D. "Don" Cooke resigned his post Tuesday stating among his reasons that, "It is my personal opinion that you (Sheriff John Vernetti) are solely to blame for this tragedy because you were aware of Richard Turner's attitude prior to the events of Aug. 27." At a press conference in Canon City Wednesday, Vernetti said Cooke had asked to resign on Aug. 24, four days before the family was killed. "Cooke mentioned that he wanted to resign prior to the Hardin incident. I was in the process of honoring his request," Vernetti said. Hardin, 37, his wife, Antoinette, 35, daughters, Lori, 15, Carol, 13, and son James, 3, were killed Friday by Colorado State Penitentiary inmate Richard J. Turner, who was working at the Hardin ranch on furlough from the Fremont County Sheriff's Department. Turner later killed himself near Fort Morgan as law enforcement officers closed in. In the letter, Cooke blamed Vernetti exclusively for the murders because he said the sheriff had known of Turner's "attitude" prior to the murder. Vernetti responded that he did not know what Cooke had intended by the word - "attitude." "I don't know what Mr. Cooke meant by that statement. While Mr. Turner was here, and before he met with the July parole board, I asked them to run a mental evaluation on him because I thought he had a problem with his temper," Vernetti said. The sheriff said he requested that a test be administered, and that he believed Turner was in the process of psychological evaluation by the West Central Mental Health Clinic in Canon City at the time he killed the Hardin family. Further questions regarding Turner's mental state would have to be referred to the clinic, Vernetti said, adding, "I'm not a psychologist." Vernetti said when Turner was transferred to the county jail for protective custody because he had witnessed a murder, he had asked the penitentiary for his status, and prison officials said Turner was on trusty status. He also quoted a prison investigator, John Snow, as saying, in effect, that co-operation with Turner would help in the case in which Turner was a witness. Snow, earlier in the week, told a reporter that Vernetti had asked for Turner as a trusty because he liked him. Vernetti said the terms of the agreement with the prison were that Turner could not be placed on any work details outside a fenced area without the supervision of a law enforcement officer. Turner was working for Hardin, who was a reserve prison guard as well as a rancher, at the time of the slayings. Vernetti said, however, that officers from his department should have checked on Turner the evening before the slayings when Turner failed to return from the Hardin ranch where he was on work release. He said Turner was due back at the county jail after supper, but a search was not launched for him until after the bodies of the Hardin family were found Friday morning. Asked if he was aware of any time that Turner had violated terms of his work release, authorized Feb. 19, Vernetti said he hadn't. But asked if he knew of an instance in which Turner failed to return to the jail on time while working on a construction project Feb. 27, Vernetti produced a report which showed that Turner was brought back to the jail late that night by deputies who searched for him. The report said Turner admitted to drinking four beers that night. Turner's trusty status prohibited his drinking of alcoholic beverages. Cooke also condemned Vernetti for his association with inmate James Chryslar. Chryslar, on trusty status at the Fremont County Jail, was sentenced in district court Wednesday for burglary, Vernetti said. Cooke's letter said: "Chryslar has taken part in a crime of violence and I feel he is not to be trusted. I personally was involved in an arrest on this man where he stated he would not be taken alive by officers. This man now has the run of the building." Vernetti said he could refute Cooke's charges regarding Chryslar "100 percent." He said the inmate had never participated in a crime of violence in Fremont County. "There is no record. If Mr. Cooke has a record of that he should return it to us because it belongs to the sheriff's department. Chryslar is on a trusty status here. He works only in the jail. He is not on work release or anything else," Vernetti said. Asked if he thought the murders indicated a need for a radical overhaul of policies at the penitentiary, Vernetti said, "I've never been in favor of radical changes. The governor is probably right in what he thinks needs to be done. And the citizens of Fremont County are partly right." The citizens of Canon City and the surrounding area, meanwhile, held a second public meeting Wednesday night with guards at the penitentiary for discussion of a petition drive demanding a grand jury investigation of "the governor's official conduct" with regard to administration of the prison. In addition to that request, the petition requests that the grand jury investigate and make recommendations concerning the following matters: The necessity of appointing a single warden for the prison with single final authority in the administration of the penitentiary; An investigation of the circumstances surrounding the recent release under the work release program of Turner; An investigation and recommendations regarding the conditions inside the penitentiary and the hazardous working conditions of personnel employed there. Ray Shoop, chairman of the petition drive, said guards who attended the meeting were supportive of the action. "The guards see the petition as a tool to get some things done that they've been wanting to get done." Shoop said that the subject of Vernetti's conduct with regard to Turner had not been raised. "This committee is not out head hunting. We just want to get some problems righted. The sheriff's office will be included in the investigation of the circumstances around the murders," he said. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 9, 1976 - Survivors of Massacred Family Ask $40 Million in Damages From State - Pueblo - Colorado Atty. Gen. J.D. MacFarlane has been asked to settle claims of $40 million in damages by survivors of the five members of the John Hardin family of Penrose, slain by a prison inmate in late August. Attorney Maurice R. Franks of Westcliffe and Pueblo made the settlement request in a letter required by Colorado law in such cases. The law requires persons seeking damage payments from the state to file a notice of intent within 90 days after the damage was done. Slain on Aug. 26 at their Penrose home were John Hardin, a Colorado State Penitentiary guard; his wife Antoinette; and three children, James Aubrey, 3, Carol, 12, and Laura, 15. The woman and two girls were raped and shot and the boy was beaten to death. The family was slain by Richard Turner, 23, a prison inmate on work release assigned to Hardin who police said killed himself as officers closed in. Turner was on a work release program from Fremont County Jail after being transferred from the medium security unit of the prison as a material witness to an inmate murder. A parole board rating filed last Jan. 8 by Board chairman Gordon Heggle said, "Richard Turner comes through in the interview as the classic rapist. There is no reason in the world to believe that he would not commit the third rape of his life and be arrested and convicted for the third time if he were released," the report said. Turner was sentenced to the prison from Morgan County after his conviction of two counts of gross sexual imposition. Franks said that he represents Inez A. Savala of Rye, the mother of Mrs. Hardin and grandmother of the three dead children; Ronnie Sanchez of Pueblo, father of the slain girls and guardian of two sons who are brothers of the two girls and half-brothers of the boy who was killed; and the two Sanchez boys, Larry and Troy. Franks has been trying to get information from the Colorado Bureau of investigation and from the attorney general to identify "who is responsible for Turner's being free to commit the rapes and the murders." However, Howard Gillespie, agent-in-charge of the CBI in Denver, said the CBI investigation was only of the crime scene and would in no way identify the persons whom the family is seeking. Further, he said, the reports are investigative and not open to the public. The lawyer said the alleged negligence of government officials gives rise to claims under Colorado negligence laws. But, he said, he also believes claims can be filed under the guarantees of equal protection under the law and of due process by the 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The family is seeking $20 million in actual damages, and $20 million in punitive and exemplary damages. Franks said if the claims are not paid, lawsuits will be filed. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 23, 1977 - State Sued for $360 Million - Denver - Relatives and heirs of a five-member Penrose family, murdered last year by an escaped convict, have filed a $360 million damage suit against the state of Colorado and top corrections officials. The filing of the suit Monday in district court came almost one year after John E. Hardin, his wife and three children were found murdered last Aug. 26 in their blood-spattered home. Mrs. Hardin and one of her daughters had been raped. Named as defendants in the suit were the state of Colorado, Gerald Agee, former director of the Colorado Division of Correctional Services; Dr. Raymond Leidig, director of the Colorado Department of Institutions; members of the state penitentiary staff; the Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti, and several members of his staff. Richard Turner, the murderer, a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate who was being held in protective custody in Fremont County Jail, had been released to work in the home of Hardin, a prison guard. Turner fled the area to northeastern Colorado, where he shot and killed himself as law officers closed in near Brush. A grand jury investigating the tragedy last December issued strong reprimands to prison officials who had been involved in Turner's case. The damage suit, filed by Pueblo attorney Maurice Franks, also claims that Gov. Richard Lamm, and officials of the state penal system and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation were involved in a conspiracy in the incident.

Hardin, Carol Ann
Carol Hardin - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 28, 1976 - Escapee Kills Five; Takes His Own Life - A 23-year-old Colorado State Penitentiary inmate shot himself to death Friday afternoon after a rampage of murder and rape that resulted in the mass slaying of a five-member family in their three-bedroom ranch house a mile south of Penrose. Richard Joseph Turner, who killed all five members of the John E. Hardin family Thursday night, was found shot to death in a stolen pickup truck, Friday afternoon about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest, near Ft. Morgan, roughly 200 miles from the scene of Thursday's murders. Turner died of a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber pistol as sheriff's officers closed in on him after a manhunt that started about 10:30 a.m. Friday, shortly after the bodies of the Hardin family were discovered in their blood-spattered home. Turner, serving an indeterminate-to-five-year sentence for a 1975 Morgan County conviction of "gross sexual imposition," was a trusty at the Fremont County Jail. He was placed there last November for protective custody. Turner was on a work detail at the Hardin ranch at the time of the slayings. Gov. Richard Lamm has ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to Turner being granted trusty status by Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti. The victims were identified as John E. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard who worked in the prison's minimum security section; his wife, Antoinette, or "Toni," 37; and their three children: Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James 2. Authorities said Mrs. Hardin and her two daughters were sexually molested, or raped. Officers said that while fleeing to Ft. Morgan, near his home, Turner took an elderly farm woman and two young girls hostage and raped one of the girls, who was 14 years old. The bodies of Hardin and his wife were found about 9:30 a.m. Friday when a telephone repairman, responding to a phone-off-the-hook service call, opened the garage door. When Fremont County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they found the infant's body in a front bedroom, and the bodies of the teenaged girls in separate bedrooms. Fremont County Coroner Henry Grabow said that late Friday it was known definitely that only one of the victims, one of the daughters, suffered a gunshot wound. He said the scene was so bloody and the wounds were so extensive, that it will take some time to determine if more bullet wounds were involved. He noted that one of the girls had a badly bruised arm, and though he ruled out possible use of a knife, Grabow said the assailant may have also used a weapon other than a gun - perhaps a "blunt" instrument, he said. Grabow said there was no evidence of a struggle. The Hardin children were found in night clothes and the parents were dressed in day clothes, he said. The females were found partially undressed. Grabow said that from his preliminary investigation, "I would guess that everybody was killed before they were (sexually) molested. At least it appears that way." Authorities have not determined the exact time of death, however there is reason to believe that some of the murders occurred about 10:30 p.m. Apparently Hardin and his wife left Turner with their children to go out for a while. The children were apparently killed in the meantime and when the parents returned, the parents were killed while parking their vehicle in the garage. Neighbors were quoted as saying that their dogs barked because of some disturbance about 10:30 p.m. No neighbors heard shots, however. Karl Hodgson, the Mountain Bell employe who first came upon the murder scene, said he first grew suspicious when he found a fun laying on the front yard of the ranch house. Authorities said the gun was a .357 magnum service revolver believed owned by Hardin. But when deputies entered the house, they found that a gun case had been broken into and many other handguns and a number of rifles had been taken. It is believed Turner made his getaway from Fremont County using a 1972 yellow four-wheel-drive pickup truck stolen from Hardin's house. Officers said it is believed to be the truck Turner shot himself in. Thursday's manhunt narrowed when a ranch wife in Morgan County reported to sheriff's officers that a red-haired man driving a four-wheel drive pickup tried to drive across her property. The truck was spotted again north of Sterling, northeast of Ft. Morgan, where the elderly woman and two girls were taken hostage. Turner raped the 14-year-old in a barn, then left alone, officers said. A short while later, Morgan County Deputy Sheriff Leo Barker came upon the vehicle which had overheated and stalled about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest. A farmer, Burlie Segelke, had stopped minutes earlier and tried to get the vehicle started by pushing it. Barker said he ordered Segelke to approach him, then heard a shot inside the cab of the pickup truck. He found Turner dead of a head wound. Barker said he found the pistol, five rifles and a shotgun in the cab. Most of the weapons were cocked and ready to fire, he said. Apparently the weapons were those taken from the Hardin residence. A search airplane with Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents aboard landed in a nearby field just after Turner died. Turner was sentenced in Morgan County to a five-year-to-indefinite sentence at the state prison after pleading guilty to a charge of "gross sexual imposition." That plea was made to a reduced charge stemming from charges of rape and menacing in September 1974 after two teenaged girls from Grand Rapids, Mich., told officers he picked them up in his car near Brush and attacked them on a rural road south of Ft. Morgan. Records also show that in September 1975, while on furlough from the state prison, Turner was charged with assault and battery on a state patrolman at Ft. Morgan after the patrolman stopped his car for a traffic check. Turner was moved from the maximum security unit at the state prison to the Fremont County Jail last Nov. 20 after he witnessed the slaying of another inmate. Turner was released as a trustee to work bailing hay on Hardin's ranch house property. However, it is not known why jail officials did not discover Turner's absence Thursday night. Fremont County Undersheriff Don Cook said the county jail only had one other penitentiary inmate in its custody besides Turner, and that "it's been the practice in the past for these inmates to return to the jail after they have finished working for the day." He said, "I don't know what the arrangement the Sheriff (John Vernetti) made in Turner's case." Vernetti was not at the scene of the murders when reporters were present, and efforts to reach him Friday were unsuccessful. Cook said Vernetti spent much of the day trying to find Hardin's parents, who live in a remote area between Canon City and Westcliffe. The parents were found late in the afternoon. According to Jerry Agee, chief of the state corrections department, Turner was placed on trusty basis Thursday by the sheriff's office and was released to work on Hardin's ranch. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 1, 1976 - Friends Still Asking 'Why?' As Hardin Family is Buried - When Death strikes down the innocent and young, for every fragile form from which he lets the panting spirit free, a hundred virtues rise, in shapes of mercy, charity, and love, to walk the world, and bless it. - Charles Dickens. Rye - Perhaps the anger was still evident deep inside the mourners of the John E. Hardin family. If is was, it was shrouded by sadness for the five slain members. Still the faces of the large gathering expressed disbelief, shock and the tragic realization that their former neighbors and friends were being put to rest. The caskets of Mr. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard, his wife, Antoinette (Toni), 35 and their three children, Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James, 3, were lined up before the approximately 500 in attendance. The funeral services were held Tuesday at the Rye High School gymnasium, the town where Mr. Hardin grew up. Officiating were the Rev. Paul Leaming and Father Ronald Roche. Following the services, interment services were held at the Rye Cemetery. Survivors include Mr. Hardin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin; two daughters by a previous marriage, Janda Sue and Bobbi Jean; two brothers, Frank and Jack Hardin and a sister, Susan Kiner. Mrs. Hardin is survived by her father, Esetuiel Baca; her mother Mrs. Celco Savala; two sons from a previous marriage, Larry and Troy Sanchez; four sisters, Mrs. Stella Castro, Gloria Alarid, Theresa Arudder, and Louise Whitcomb; four brothers, Richardo, Joseph, and Robert Baca and Tim Savala.

Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 9, 1976 - Survivors of Massacred Family Ask $40 Million in Damages From State - Pueblo - Colorado Atty. Gen. J.D. MacFarlane has been asked to settle claims of $40 million in damages by survivors of the five members of the John Hardin family of Penrose, slain by a prison inmate in late August. Attorney Maurice R. Franks of Westcliffe and Pueblo made the settlement request in a letter required by Colorado law in such cases.

Richard Joseph Turner, who killed all five members of the John E. Hardin family Thursday night, was found shot to death in a stolen pickup truck, Friday afternoon about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest, near Ft. Morgan, roughly 200 miles from the scene of Thursday's murders. Turner died of a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber pistol as sheriff's officers closed in on him after a manhunt that started about 10:30 a.m. Friday, shortly after the bodies of the Hardin family were discovered in their blood-spattered home. Turner, serving an indeterminate-to-five-year sentence for a 1975 Morgan County conviction of "gross sexual imposition," was a trusty at the Fremont County Jail. He was placed there last November for protective custody. Turner was on a work detail at the Hardin ranch at the time of the slayings. Gov. Richard Lamm has ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to Turner being granted trusty status by Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti. The victims were identified as John E. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard who worked in the prison's minimum security section; his wife, Antoinette, or "Toni," 37; and their three children: Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James 2. Authorities said Mrs. Hardin and her two daughters were sexually molested, or raped. Officers said that while fleeing to Ft. Morgan, near his home, Turner took an elderly farm woman and two young girls hostage and raped one of the girls, who was 14 years old. The bodies of Hardin and his wife were found about 9:30 a.m. Friday when a telephone repairman, responding to a phone-off-the-hook service call, opened the garage door. When Fremont County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they found the infant's body in a front bedroom, and the bodies of the teenaged girls in separate bedrooms. Fremont County Coroner Henry Grabow said that late Friday it was known definitely that only one of the victims, one of the daughters, suffered a gunshot wound. He said the scene was so bloody and the wounds were so extensive, that it will take some time to determine if more bullet wounds were involved. He noted that one of the girls had a badly bruised arm, and though he ruled out possible use of a knife, Grabow said the assailant may have also used a weapon other than a gun - perhaps a "blunt" instrument, he said. Grabow said there was no evidence of a struggle. The Hardin children were found in night clothes and the parents were dressed in day clothes, he said. The females were found partially undressed. Grabow said that from his preliminary investigation, "I would guess that everybody was killed before they were (sexually) molested. At least it appears that way." Authorities have not determined the exact time of death, however there is reason to believe that some of the murders occurred about 10:30 p.m. Apparently Hardin and his wife left Turner with their children to go out for a while. The children were apparently killed in the meantime and when the parents returned, the parents were killed while parking their vehicle in the garage. Neighbors were quoted as saying that their dogs barked because of some disturbance about 10:30 p.m. No neighbors heard shots, however. Karl Hodgson, the Mountain Bell employe who first came upon the murder scene, said he first grew suspicious when he found a fun laying on the front yard of the ranch house. Authorities said the gun was a .357 magnum service revolver believed owned by Hardin. But when deputies entered the house, they found that a gun case had been broken into and many other handguns and a number of rifles had been taken. It is believed Turner made his getaway from Fremont County using a 1972 yellow four-wheel-drive pickup truck stolen from Hardin's house. Officers said it is believed to be the truck Turner shot himself in. Thursday's manhunt narrowed when a ranch wife in Morgan County reported to sheriff's officers that a red-haired man driving a four-wheel drive pickup tried to drive across her property. The truck was spotted again north of Sterling, northeast of Ft. Morgan, where the elderly woman and two girls were taken hostage. Turner raped the 14-year-old in a barn, then left alone, officers said. A short while later, Morgan County Deputy Sheriff Leo Barker came upon the vehicle which had overheated and stalled about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest. A farmer, Burlie Segelke, had stopped minutes earlier and tried to get the vehicle started by pushing it. Barker said he ordered Segelke to approach him, then heard a shot inside the cab of the pickup truck. He found Turner dead of a head wound. Barker said he found the pistol, five rifles and a shotgun in the cab. Most of the weapons were cocked and ready to fire, he said. Apparently the weapons were those taken from the Hardin residence. A search airplane with Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents aboard landed in a nearby field just after Turner died. Turner was sentenced in Morgan County to a five-year-to-indefinite sentence at the state prison after pleading guilty to a charge of "gross sexual imposition." That plea was made to a reduced charge stemming from charges of rape and menacing in September 1974 after two teenaged girls from Grand Rapids, Mich., told officers he picked them up in his car near Brush and attacked them on a rural road south of Ft. Morgan. Records also show that in September 1975, while on furlough from the state prison, Turner was charged with assault and battery on a state patrolman at Ft. Morgan after the patrolman stopped his car for a traffic check. Turner was moved from the maximum security unit at the state prison to the Fremont County Jail last Nov. 20 after he witnessed the slaying of another inmate. Turner was released as a trustee to work bailing hay on Hardin's ranch house property. However, it is not known why jail officials did not discover Turner's absence Thursday night. Fremont County Undersheriff Don Cook said the county jail only had one other penitentiary inmate in its custody besides Turner, and that "it's been the practice in the past for these inmates to return to the jail after they have finished working for the day." He said, "I don't know what the arrangement the Sheriff (John Vernetti) made in Turner's case." Vernetti was not at the scene of the murders when reporters were present, and efforts to reach him Friday were unsuccessful. Cook said Vernetti spent much of the day trying to find Hardin's parents, who live in a remote area between Canon City and Westcliffe. The parents were found late in the afternoon. According to Jerry Agee, chief of the state corrections department, Turner was placed on trusty basis Thursday by the sheriff's office and was released to work on Hardin's ranch. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 1, 1976 - Friends Still Asking 'Why?' As Hardin Family is Buried - When Death strikes down the innocent and young, for every fragile form from which he lets the panting spirit free, a hundred virtues rise, in shapes of mercy, charity, and love, to walk the world, and bless it. - Charles Dickens. Rye - Perhaps the anger was still evident deep inside the mourners of the John E. Hardin family. If is was, it was shrouded by sadness for the five slain members. Still the faces of the large gathering expressed disbelief, shock and the tragic realization that their former neighbors and friends were being put to rest. The caskets of Mr. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard, his wife, Antoinette (Toni), 35 and their three children, Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James, 3, were lined up before the approximately 500 in attendance. The funeral services were held Tuesday at the Rye High School gymnasium, the town where Mr. Hardin grew up. Officiating were the Rev. Paul Leaming and Father Ronald Roche. Following the services, interment services were held at the Rye Cemetery. Survivors include Mr. Hardin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin; two daughters by a previous marriage, Janda Sue and Bobbi Jean; two brothers, Frank and Jack Hardin and a sister, Susan Kiner. Mrs. Hardin is survived by her father, Esetuiel Baca; her mother Mrs. Celco Savala; two sons from a previous marriage, Larry and Troy Sanchez; four sisters, Mrs. Stella Castro, Gloria Alarid, Theresa Arudder, and Louise Whitcomb; four brothers, Richardo, Joseph, and Robert Baca and Tim Savala. The tragic events which led to Tuesday's funeral began to unfold last Friday when the family was found murdered in its Penrose home near Canon City. Richard Joseph Turner, who was working on furlough for the Hardins, as a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate, was the object of a state-wide search. He was found shot to death by his own hand, in a stolen pickup truck Friday afternoon near Fort Morgan as sheriff's officers closed in. The mourners paid their final respects to the Hardin family in the tiny town located southwest of Pueblo. Their faces still expressed the question, "Why?" Whatever the reason, or reasons, the killings prompted Gov. Richard Lamm to call a special session of the Colorado Legislature to work out a new plan to increase security at the state's penal institutions. But for the slain family, relatives and friends, it seemed of little consequence Monday. Following the services, the caskets were rolled out to the waiting hearses. As the mourners watched and comforted the family's survivors the bearers, the Fremont County Sheriff's Posse, first carried out the casket of Carol. Lori and her mother were next, then Jimmy and his father, whose casket was draped with the American flag. The tragedy had stunned the state and the funeral drew a few newspeople who, while realizing the touchy and sad situation, were not entirely welcome. A television cameraman, he related later, was approached by a member of the Hardin family and asked, "Why can't you (the news media) leave things be." A newspaper photographer was approached by another woman who asked him, "Do you care so much for your job that you have to do this?" The photographer explained that it wasn't his decision and the woman told him, "Tell your editor to go to hell." The tiny cemetery was soon crowded for the final service which concluded with the honor guard presenting the flag to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin - the final possession of their son's, but not the final memory. The large gathering soon departed leaving the Hardins, a family in life, still together as a family in death. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 2, 1976 - Undersheriff Wanted to Resign Prior to Hardin Murders, Sheriff Declares - Canon City - Fremont County Undersheriff Raymond D. "Don" Cooke resigned his post Tuesday stating among his reasons that, "It is my personal opinion that you (Sheriff John Vernetti) are solely to blame for this tragedy because you were aware of Richard Turner's attitude prior to the events of Aug. 27." At a press conference in Canon City Wednesday, Vernetti said Cooke had asked to resign on Aug. 24, four days before the family was killed. "Cooke mentioned that he wanted to resign prior to the Hardin incident. I was in the process of honoring his request," Vernetti said. Hardin, 37, his wife, Antoinette, 35, daughters, Lori, 15, Carol, 13, and son James, 3, were killed Friday by Colorado State Penitentiary inmate Richard J. Turner, who was working at the Hardin ranch on furlough from the Fremont County Sheriff's Department. Turner later killed himself near Fort Morgan as law enforcement officers closed in. In the letter, Cooke blamed Vernetti exclusively for the murders because he said the sheriff had known of Turner's "attitude" prior to the murder. Vernetti responded that he did not know what Cooke had intended by the word - "attitude." "I don't know what Mr. Cooke meant by that statement. While Mr. Turner was here, and before he met with the July parole board, I asked them to run a mental evaluation on him because I thought he had a problem with his temper," Vernetti said. The sheriff said he requested that a test be administered, and that he believed Turner was in the process of psychological evaluation by the West Central Mental Health Clinic in Canon City at the time he killed the Hardin family. Further questions regarding Turner's mental state would have to be referred to the clinic, Vernetti said, adding, "I'm not a psychologist." Vernetti said when Turner was transferred to the county jail for protective custody because he had witnessed a murder, he had asked the penitentiary for his status, and prison officials said Turner was on trusty status. He also quoted a prison investigator, John Snow, as saying, in effect, that co-operation with Turner would help in the case in which Turner was a witness. Snow, earlier in the week, told a reporter that Vernetti had asked for Turner as a trusty because he liked him. Vernetti said the terms of the agreement with the prison were that Turner could not be placed on any work details outside a fenced area without the supervision of a law enforcement officer. Turner was working for Hardin, who was a reserve prison guard as well as a rancher, at the time of the slayings. Vernetti said, however, that officers from his department should have checked on Turner the evening before the slayings when Turner failed to return from the Hardin ranch where he was on work release. He said Turner was due back at the county jail after supper, but a search was not launched for him until after the bodies of the Hardin family were found Friday morning. Asked if he was aware of any time that Turner had violated terms of his work release, authorized Feb. 19, Vernetti said he hadn't. But asked if he knew of an instance in which Turner failed to return to the jail on time while working on a construction project Feb. 27, Vernetti produced a report which showed that Turner was brought back to the jail late that night by deputies who searched for him. The report said Turner admitted to drinking four beers that night. Turner's trusty status prohibited his drinking of alcoholic beverages. Cooke also condemned Vernetti for his association with inmate James Chryslar. Chryslar, on trusty status at the Fremont County Jail, was sentenced in district court Wednesday for burglary, Vernetti said. Cooke's letter said: "Chryslar has taken part in a crime of violence and I feel he is not to be trusted. I personally was involved in an arrest on this man where he stated he would not be taken alive by officers. This man now has the run of the building." Vernetti said he could refute Cooke's charges regarding Chryslar "100 percent." He said the inmate had never participated in a crime of violence in Fremont County. "There is no record. If Mr. Cooke has a record of that he should return it to us because it belongs to the sheriff's department. Chryslar is on a trusty status here. He works only in the jail. He is not on work release or anything else," Vernetti said. Asked if he thought the murders indicated a need for a radical overhaul of policies at the penitentiary, Vernetti said, "I've never been in favor of radical changes. The governor is probably right in what he thinks needs to be done. And the citizens of Fremont County are partly right." The citizens of Canon City and the surrounding area, meanwhile, held a second public meeting Wednesday night with guards at the penitentiary for discussion of a petition drive demanding a grand jury investigation of "the governor's official conduct" with regard to administration of the prison. In addition to that request, the petition requests that the grand jury investigate and make recommendations concerning the following matters: The necessity of appointing a single warden for the prison with single final authority in the administration of the penitentiary; An investigation of the circumstances surrounding the recent release under the work release program of Turner; An investigation and recommendations regarding the conditions inside the penitentiary and the hazardous working conditions of personnel employed there. Ray Shoop, chairman of the petition drive, said guards who attended the meeting were supportive of the action. "The guards see the petition as a tool to get some things done that they've been wanting to get done." Shoop said that the subject of Vernetti's conduct with regard to Turner had not been raised. "This committee is not out head hunting. We just want to get some problems righted. The sheriff's office will be included in the investigation of the circumstances around the murders," he said. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 9, 1976 - Survivors of Massacred Family Ask $40 Million in Damages From State - Pueblo - Colorado Atty. Gen. J.D. MacFarlane has been asked to settle claims of $40 million in damages by survivors of the five members of the John Hardin family of Penrose, slain by a prison inmate in late August. Attorney Maurice R. Franks of Westcliffe and Pueblo made the settlement request in a letter required by Colorado law in such cases. The law requires persons seeking damage payments from the state to file a notice of intent within 90 days after the damage was done. Slain on Aug. 26 at their Penrose home were John Hardin, a Colorado State Penitentiary guard; his wife Antoinette; and three children, James Aubrey, 3, Carol, 12, and Laura, 15. The woman and two girls were raped and shot and the boy was beaten to death. The family was slain by Richard Turner, 23, a prison inmate on work release assigned to Hardin who police said killed himself as officers closed in. Turner was on a work release program from Fremont County Jail after being transferred from the medium security unit of the prison as a material witness to an inmate murder. A parole board rating filed last Jan. 8 by Board chairman Gordon Heggle said, "Richard Turner comes through in the interview as the classic rapist. There is no reason in the world to believe that he would not commit the third rape of his life and be arrested and convicted for the third time if he were released," the report said. Turner was sentenced to the prison from Morgan County after his conviction of two counts of gross sexual imposition. Franks said that he represents Inez A. Savala of Rye, the mother of Mrs. Hardin and grandmother of the three dead children; Ronnie Sanchez of Pueblo, father of the slain girls and guardian of two sons who are brothers of the two girls and half-brothers of the boy who was killed; and the two Sanchez boys, Larry and Troy. Franks has been trying to get information from the Colorado Bureau of investigation and from the attorney general to identify "who is responsible for Turner's being free to commit the rapes and the murders." However, Howard Gillespie, agent-in-charge of the CBI in Denver, said the CBI investigation was only of the crime scene and would in no way identify the persons whom the family is seeking. Further, he said, the reports are investigative and not open to the public. The lawyer said the alleged negligence of government officials gives rise to claims under Colorado negligence laws. But, he said, he also believes claims can be filed under the guarantees of equal protection under the law and of due process by the 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The family is seeking $20 million in actual damages, and $20 million in punitive and exemplary damages. Franks said if the claims are not paid, lawsuits will be filed. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 23, 1977 - State Sued for $360 Million - Denver - Relatives and heirs of a five-member Penrose family, murdered last year by an escaped convict, have filed a $360 million damage suit against the state of Colorado and top corrections officials. The filing of the suit Monday in district court came almost one year after John E. Hardin, his wife and three children were found murdered last Aug. 26 in their blood-spattered home. Mrs. Hardin and one of her daughters had been raped. Named as defendants in the suit were the state of Colorado, Gerald Agee, former director of the Colorado Division of Correctional Services; Dr. Raymond Leidig, director of the Colorado Department of Institutions; members of the state penitentiary staff; the Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti, and several members of his staff. Richard Turner, the murderer, a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate who was being held in protective custody in Fremont County Jail, had been released to work in the home of Hardin, a prison guard. Turner fled the area to northeastern Colorado, where he shot and killed himself as law officers closed in near Brush. A grand jury investigating the tragedy last December issued strong reprimands to prison officials who had been involved in Turner's case. The damage suit, filed by Pueblo attorney Maurice Franks, also claims that Gov. Richard Lamm, and officials of the state penal system and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation were involved in a conspiracy in the incident.

Hardin, John E.
John E. Hardin - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 28, 1976 - Escapee Kills Five; Takes His Own Life - A 23-year-old Colorado State Penitentiary inmate shot himself to death Friday afternoon after a rampage of murder and rape that resulted in the mass slaying of a five-member family in their three-bedroom ranch house a mile south of Penrose. Richard Joseph Turner, who killed all five members of the John E. Hardin family Thursday night, was found shot to death in a stolen pickup truck, Friday afternoon about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest, near Ft. Morgan, roughly 200 miles from the scene of Thursday's murders. Turner died of a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber pistol as sheriff's officers closed in on him after a manhunt that started about 10:30 a.m. Friday, shortly after the bodies of the Hardin family were discovered in their blood-spattered home. Turner, serving an indeterminate-to-five-year sentence for a 1975 Morgan County conviction of "gross sexual imposition," was a trusty at the Fremont County Jail.

Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 2, 1976 - Undersheriff Wanted to Resign Prior to Hardin Murders, Sheriff Declares - Canon City - Fremont County Undersheriff Raymond D. "Don" Cooke resigned his post Tuesday stating among his reasons that, "It is my personal opinion that you (Sheriff John Vernetti) are solely to blame for this tragedy because you were aware of Richard Turner's attitude prior to the events of Aug. 27." At a press conference in Canon City Wednesday, Vernetti said Cooke had asked to resign on Aug. 24, four days before the family was killed. "Cooke mentioned that he wanted to resign prior to the Hardin incident. I was in the process of honoring his request," Vernetti said.

Turner, who was working at the Hardin ranch on furlough from the Fremont County Sheriff's Department. Turner later killed himself near Fort Morgan as law enforcement officers closed in. In the letter, Cooke blamed Vernetti exclusively for the murders because he said the sheriff had known of Turner's "attitude" prior to the murder.

I personally was involved in an arrest on this man where he stated he would not be taken alive by officers. This man now has the run of the building." Vernetti said he could refute Cooke's charges regarding Chryslar "100 percent." He said the inmate had never participated in a crime of violence in Fremont County. "There is no record. If Mr. Cooke has a record of that he should return it to us because it belongs to the sheriff's department. Chryslar is on a trusty status here. He works only in the jail. He is not on work release or anything else," Vernetti said. Asked if he thought the murders indicated a need for a radical overhaul of policies at the penitentiary, Vernetti said, "I've never been in favor of radical changes. The governor is probably right in what he thinks needs to be done. And the citizens of Fremont County are partly right." The citizens of Canon City and the surrounding area, meanwhile, held a second public meeting Wednesday night with guards at the penitentiary for discussion of a petition drive demanding a grand jury investigation of "the governor's official conduct" with regard to administration of the prison. In addition to that request, the petition requests that the grand jury investigate and make recommendations concerning the following matters: The necessity of appointing a single warden for the prison with single final authority in the administration of the penitentiary; An investigation of the circumstances surrounding the recent release under the work release program of Turner; An investigation and recommendations regarding the conditions inside the penitentiary and the hazardous working conditions of personnel employed there. Ray Shoop, chairman of the petition drive, said guards who attended the meeting were supportive of the action. "The guards see the petition as a tool to get some things done that they've been wanting to get done." Shoop said that the subject of Vernetti's conduct with regard to Turner had not been raised. "This committee is not out head hunting. We just want to get some problems righted. The sheriff's office will be included in the investigation of the circumstances around the murders," he said. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - November 9, 1976 - Survivors of Massacred Family Ask $40 Million in Damages From State - Pueblo - Colorado Atty. Gen. J.D. MacFarlane has been asked to settle claims of $40 million in damages by survivors of the five members of the John Hardin family of Penrose, slain by a prison inmate in late August. Attorney Maurice R. Franks of Westcliffe and Pueblo made the settlement request in a letter required by Colorado law in such cases. The law requires persons seeking damage payments from the state to file a notice of intent within 90 days after the damage was done. Slain on Aug. 26 at their Penrose home were John Hardin, a Colorado State Penitentiary guard; his wife Antoinette; and three children, James Aubrey, 3, Carol, 12, and Laura, 15. The woman and two girls were raped and shot and the boy was beaten to death. The family was slain by Richard Turner, 23, a prison inmate on work release assigned to Hardin who police said killed himself as officers closed in. Turner was on a work release program from Fremont County Jail after being transferred from the medium security unit of the prison as a material witness to an inmate murder. A parole board rating filed last Jan. 8 by Board chairman Gordon Heggle said, "Richard Turner comes through in the interview as the classic rapist. There is no reason in the world to believe that he would not commit the third rape of his life and be arrested and convicted for the third time if he were released," the report said. Turner was sentenced to the prison from Morgan County after his conviction of two counts of gross sexual imposition. Franks said that he represents Inez A. Savala of Rye, the mother of Mrs. Hardin and grandmother of the three dead children; Ronnie Sanchez of Pueblo, father of the slain girls and guardian of two sons who are brothers of the two girls and half-brothers of the boy who was killed; and the two Sanchez boys, Larry and Troy. Franks has been trying to get information from the Colorado Bureau of investigation and from the attorney general to identify "who is responsible for Turner's being free to commit the rapes and the murders." However, Howard Gillespie, agent-in-charge of the CBI in Denver, said the CBI investigation was only of the crime scene and would in no way identify the persons whom the family is seeking. Further, he said, the reports are investigative and not open to the public. The lawyer said the alleged negligence of government officials gives rise to claims under Colorado negligence laws. But, he said, he also believes claims can be filed under the guarantees of equal protection under the law and of due process by the 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The family is seeking $20 million in actual damages, and $20 million in punitive and exemplary damages. Franks said if the claims are not paid, lawsuits will be filed. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 23, 1977 - State Sued for $360 Million - Denver - Relatives and heirs of a five-member Penrose family, murdered last year by an escaped convict, have filed a $360 million damage suit against the state of Colorado and top corrections officials. The filing of the suit Monday in district court came almost one year after John E. Hardin, his wife and three children were found murdered last Aug. 26 in their blood-spattered home. Mrs. Hardin and one of her daughters had been raped. Named as defendants in the suit were the state of Colorado, Gerald Agee, former director of the Colorado Division of Correctional Services; Dr. Raymond Leidig, director of the Colorado Department of Institutions; members of the state penitentiary staff; the Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti, and several members of his staff. Richard Turner, the murderer, a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate who was being held in protective custody in Fremont County Jail, had been released to work in the home of Hardin, a prison guard. Turner fled the area to northeastern Colorado, where he shot and killed himself as law officers closed in near Brush. A grand jury investigating the tragedy last December issued strong reprimands to prison officials who had been involved in Turner's case. The damage suit, filed by Pueblo attorney Maurice Franks, also claims that Gov. Richard Lamm, and officials of the state penal system and the Colorado Bureau of Investigation were involved in a conspiracy in the incident.

Hardin, Lori
Lori Hardin - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 28, 1976 - Escapee Kills Five; Takes His Own Life - A 23-year-old Colorado State Penitentiary inmate shot himself to death Friday afternoon after a rampage of murder and rape that resulted in the mass slaying of a five-member family in their three-bedroom ranch house a mile south of Penrose. Richard Joseph Turner, who killed all five members of the John E. Hardin family Thursday night, was found shot to death in a stolen pickup truck, Friday afternoon about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest, near Ft. Morgan, roughly 200 miles from the scene of Thursday's murders. Turner died of a gunshot wound from a .22-caliber pistol as sheriff's officers closed in on him after a manhunt that started about 10:30 a.m. Friday, shortly after the bodies of the Hardin family were discovered in their blood-spattered home. Turner, serving an indeterminate-to-five-year sentence for a 1975 Morgan County conviction of "gross sexual imposition," was a trusty at the Fremont County Jail. He was placed there last November for protective custody. Turner was on a work detail at the Hardin ranch at the time of the slayings. Gov. Richard Lamm has ordered an investigation into the circumstances that led to Turner being granted trusty status by Fremont County Sheriff John Vernetti. The victims were identified as John E. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard who worked in the prison's minimum security section; his wife, Antoinette, or "Toni," 37; and their three children: Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James 2. Authorities said Mrs. Hardin and her two daughters were sexually molested, or raped. Officers said that while fleeing to Ft. Morgan, near his home, Turner took an elderly farm woman and two young girls hostage and raped one of the girls, who was 14 years old. The bodies of Hardin and his wife were found about 9:30 a.m. Friday when a telephone repairman, responding to a phone-off-the-hook service call, opened the garage door. When Fremont County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they found the infant's body in a front bedroom, and the bodies of the teenaged girls in separate bedrooms. Fremont County Coroner Henry Grabow said that late Friday it was known definitely that only one of the victims, one of the daughters, suffered a gunshot wound. He said the scene was so bloody and the wounds were so extensive, that it will take some time to determine if more bullet wounds were involved. He noted that one of the girls had a badly bruised arm, and though he ruled out possible use of a knife, Grabow said the assailant may have also used a weapon other than a gun - perhaps a "blunt" instrument, he said. Grabow said there was no evidence of a struggle. The Hardin children were found in night clothes and the parents were dressed in day clothes, he said. The females were found partially undressed. Grabow said that from his preliminary investigation, "I would guess that everybody was killed before they were (sexually) molested. At least it appears that way." Authorities have not determined the exact time of death, however there is reason to believe that some of the murders occurred about 10:30 p.m. Apparently Hardin and his wife left Turner with their children to go out for a while. The children were apparently killed in the meantime and when the parents returned, the parents were killed while parking their vehicle in the garage. Neighbors were quoted as saying that their dogs barked because of some disturbance about 10:30 p.m. No neighbors heard shots, however. Karl Hodgson, the Mountain Bell employe who first came upon the murder scene, said he first grew suspicious when he found a fun laying on the front yard of the ranch house. Authorities said the gun was a .357 magnum service revolver believed owned by Hardin. But when deputies entered the house, they found that a gun case had been broken into and many other handguns and a number of rifles had been taken. It is believed Turner made his getaway from Fremont County using a 1972 yellow four-wheel-drive pickup truck stolen from Hardin's house. Officers said it is believed to be the truck Turner shot himself in. Thursday's manhunt narrowed when a ranch wife in Morgan County reported to sheriff's officers that a red-haired man driving a four-wheel drive pickup tried to drive across her property. The truck was spotted again north of Sterling, northeast of Ft. Morgan, where the elderly woman and two girls were taken hostage. Turner raped the 14-year-old in a barn, then left alone, officers said. A short while later, Morgan County Deputy Sheriff Leo Barker came upon the vehicle which had overheated and stalled about seven miles northeast of Hillcrest. A farmer, Burlie Segelke, had stopped minutes earlier and tried to get the vehicle started by pushing it. Barker said he ordered Segelke to approach him, then heard a shot inside the cab of the pickup truck. He found Turner dead of a head wound. Barker said he found the pistol, five rifles and a shotgun in the cab. Most of the weapons were cocked and ready to fire, he said. Apparently the weapons were those taken from the Hardin residence. A search airplane with Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents aboard landed in a nearby field just after Turner died. Turner was sentenced in Morgan County to a five-year-to-indefinite sentence at the state prison after pleading guilty to a charge of "gross sexual imposition." That plea was made to a reduced charge stemming from charges of rape and menacing in September 1974 after two teenaged girls from Grand Rapids, Mich., told officers he picked them up in his car near Brush and attacked them on a rural road south of Ft. Morgan. Records also show that in September 1975, while on furlough from the state prison, Turner was charged with assault and battery on a state patrolman at Ft. Morgan after the patrolman stopped his car for a traffic check. Turner was moved from the maximum security unit at the state prison to the Fremont County Jail last Nov. 20 after he witnessed the slaying of another inmate. Turner was released as a trustee to work bailing hay on Hardin's ranch house property. However, it is not known why jail officials did not discover Turner's absence Thursday night. Fremont County Undersheriff Don Cook said the county jail only had one other penitentiary inmate in its custody besides Turner, and that "it's been the practice in the past for these inmates to return to the jail after they have finished working for the day." He said, "I don't know what the arrangement the Sheriff (John Vernetti) made in Turner's case." Vernetti was not at the scene of the murders when reporters were present, and efforts to reach him Friday were unsuccessful. Cook said Vernetti spent much of the day trying to find Hardin's parents, who live in a remote area between Canon City and Westcliffe. The parents were found late in the afternoon. According to Jerry Agee, chief of the state corrections department, Turner was placed on trusty basis Thursday by the sheriff's office and was released to work on Hardin's ranch. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 1, 1976 - Friends Still Asking 'Why?' As Hardin Family is Buried - When Death strikes down the innocent and young, for every fragile form from which he lets the panting spirit free, a hundred virtues rise, in shapes of mercy, charity, and love, to walk the world, and bless it. - Charles Dickens. Rye - Perhaps the anger was still evident deep inside the mourners of the John E. Hardin family. If is was, it was shrouded by sadness for the five slain members. Still the faces of the large gathering expressed disbelief, shock and the tragic realization that their former neighbors and friends were being put to rest. The caskets of Mr. Hardin, 37, a reserve penitentiary guard, his wife, Antoinette (Toni), 35 and their three children, Lori, 15; Carol, 13; and James, 3, were lined up before the approximately 500 in attendance. The funeral services were held Tuesday at the Rye High School gymnasium, the town where Mr. Hardin grew up. Officiating were the Rev. Paul Leaming and Father Ronald Roche. Following the services, interment services were held at the Rye Cemetery. Survivors include Mr. Hardin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin; two daughters by a previous marriage, Janda Sue and Bobbi Jean; two brothers, Frank and Jack Hardin and a sister, Susan Kiner. Mrs. Hardin is survived by her father, Esetuiel Baca; her mother Mrs. Celco Savala; two sons from a previous marriage, Larry and Troy Sanchez; four sisters, Mrs. Stella Castro, Gloria Alarid, Theresa Arudder, and Louise Whitcomb; four brothers, Richardo, Joseph, and Robert Baca and Tim Savala. The tragic events which led to Tuesday's funeral began to unfold last Friday when the family was found murdered in its Penrose home near Canon City. Richard Joseph Turner, who was working on furlough for the Hardins, as a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate, was the object of a state-wide search. He was found shot to death by his own hand, in a stolen pickup truck Friday afternoon near Fort Morgan as sheriff's officers closed in. The mourners paid their final respects to the Hardin family in the tiny town located southwest of Pueblo. Their faces still expressed the question, "Why?" Whatever the reason, or reasons, the killings prompted Gov. Richard Lamm to call a special session of the Colorado Legislature to work out a new plan to increase security at the state's penal institutions. But for the slain family, relatives and friends, it seemed of little consequence Monday. Following the services, the caskets were rolled out to the waiting hearses. As the mourners watched and comforted the family's survivors the bearers, the Fremont County Sheriff's Posse, first carried out the casket of Carol. Lori and her mother were next, then Jimmy and his father, whose casket was draped with the American flag. The tragedy had stunned the state and the funeral drew a few newspeople who, while realizing the touchy and sad situation, were not entirely welcome. A television cameraman, he related later, was approached by a member of the Hardin family and asked, "Why can't you (the news media) leave things be." A newspaper photographer was approached by another woman who asked him, "Do you care so much for your job that you have to do this?" The photographer explained that it wasn't his decision and the woman told him, "Tell your editor to go to hell." The tiny cemetery was soon crowded for the final service which concluded with the honor guard presenting the flag to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Hardin - the final possession of their son's, but not the final memory. The large gathering soon departed leaving the Hardins, a family in life, still together as a family in death. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - September 2, 1976 - Undersheriff Wanted to Resign Prior to Hardin Murders, Sheriff Declares - Canon City - Fremont County Undersheriff Raymond D. "Don" Cooke resigned his post Tuesday stating among his reasons that, "It is my personal opinion that you (Sheriff John Vernetti) are solely to blame for this tragedy because you were aware of Richard Turner's attitude prior to the events of Aug. 27." At a press conference in Canon City Wednesday, Vernetti said Cooke had asked to resign on Aug. 24, four days before the family was killed. "Cooke mentioned that he wanted to resign prior to the Hardin incident. I was in the process of honoring his request," Vernetti said. Hardin, 37, his wife, Antoinette, 35, daughters, Lori, 15, Carol, 13, and son James, 3, were killed Friday by Colorado State Penitentiary inmate Richard J. Turner, who was working at the Hardin ranch on furlough from the Fremont County Sheriff's Department. Turner later killed himself near Fort Morgan as law enforcement officers closed in. In the letter, Cooke blamed Vernetti exclusively for the murders because he said the sheriff had known of Turner's "attitude" prior to the murder. Vernetti responded that he did not know what Cooke had intended by the word - "attitude." "I don't know what Mr. Cooke meant by that statement. While Mr. Turner was here, and before he met with the July parole board, I asked them to run a mental evaluation on him because I thought he had a problem with his temper," Vernetti said. The sheriff said he requested that a test be administered, and that he believed Turner was in the process of psychological evaluation by the West Central Mental Health Clinic in Canon City at the time he killed the Hardin family. Further questions regarding Turner's mental state would have to be referred to the clinic, Vernetti said, adding, "I'm not a psychologist." Vernetti said when Turner was transferred to the county jail for protective custody because he had witnessed a murder, he had asked the penitentiary for his status, and prison officials said Turner was on trusty status. He also quoted a prison investigator, John Snow, as saying, in effect, that co-operation with Turner would help in the case in which Turner was a witness. Snow, earlier in the week, told a reporter that Vernetti had asked for Turner as a trusty because he liked him. Vernetti said the terms of the agreement with the prison were that Turner could not be placed on any work details outside a fenced area without the supervision of a law enforcement officer. Turner was working for Hardin, who was a reserve prison guard as well as a rancher, at the time of the slayings. Vernetti said, however, that officers from his department should have checked on Turner the evening before the slayings when Turner failed to return from the Hardin ranch where he was on work release. He said Turner was due back at the county jail after supper, but a search was not launched for him until after the bodies of the Hardin family were found Friday morning. Asked if he was aware of any time that Turner had violated terms of his work release, authorized Feb. 19, Vernetti said he hadn't. But asked if he knew of an instance in which Turner failed to return to the jail on time while working on a construction project Feb. 27, Vernetti produced a report which showed that Turner was brought back to the jail late that night by deputies who searched for him. The report said Turner admitted to drinking four beers that night. Turner's trusty status prohibited his drinking of alcoholic beverages. Cooke also condemned Vernetti for his association with inmate James Chryslar. Chryslar, on trusty status at the Fremont County Jail, was sentenced in district court Wednesday for burglary, Vernetti said. Cooke's letter said: "Chryslar has taken part in a crime of violence and I feel he is not to be trusted. I personally was involved in an arrest on this man where he stated he would not be taken alive by officers. This man now has the run of the building." Vernetti said he could refute Cooke's charges regarding Chryslar "100 percent." He said the inmate had never participated in a crime of violence in Fremont County. "There is no record. If Mr. Cooke has a record of that he should return it to us because it belongs to the sheriff's department. Chryslar is on a trusty status here. He works only in the jail. He is not on work release or anything else," Vernetti said. Asked if he thought the murders indicated a need for a radical overhaul of policies at the penitentiary, Vernetti said, "I've never been in favor of radical changes. The governor is probably right in what he thinks needs to be done. And the citizens of Fremont County are partly right." The citizens of Canon City and the surrounding area, meanwhile, held a second public meeting Wednesday night with guards at the penitentiary for discussion of a petition drive demanding a grand jury investigation of "the governor's official conduct" with regard to administration of the prison. In addition to that request, the petition requests that the grand jury investigate and make recommendations concerning the following matters: The necessity of appointing a single warden for the prison with single final authority in the administration of the penitentiary; An investigation of the circumstances surrounding the recent release under the work release program of Turner; An investigation and recommendations regarding the conditions inside the penitentiary and the hazardous working conditions of personnel employed there.

Hardin, Richard Family of
Richard Hardin - Pueblo Chieftain - August 28, 1976 - Did tavern hassle lead to murders? - Penrose (C-SJ) An incident in a Penrose bar late Thursday may have been the launching point for a spree of rape and murder by a Colorado State Penitentiary inmate in which he and a five member Penrose family were killed. Richard Turner, 24, a CSP inmate, murdered Richard Hardin, his wife, Toni and their three children sometime between late Thursday and early Friday. Turner later shot himself when police closed in on him near Fort Morgan. According to witnesses at the scene, Hardin and Turner had been drinking together Thursday night. Local authorities would not confirm this Friday afternoon. However in a check by The Pueblo Chieftain, one Penrose tavern owner said Turner and Hardin did spend nearly four hours in his establishment Thursday evening. John Miller, owner of Gab's Cafι, said Hardin and Turner had a little hassle before they left his tavern. Miller said the two had been drinking during the time they spent in the bar but he couldn't say whether either one or both of the men were drunk.

Hardin, Victor K.
Victor K. Hardin – Los Angeles Times - August 8, 2002 – Victor K. Hardin was born Sept. 25, 1917 in Plains, CO. He died August 4, 2002. He moved to CA during the Depression traveling with a friend in a Model T. Ford to avoid the dust bowl. He began working for Lumley Motors in Huntington Park as a porter. He worked his way up to become General Manager of the Lumley dealerships in Los Angeles and Huntington Park. World War II broke out and Victor joined the service. He rose to the rank of Captain in the Air Force where he served in the Pacific Theatre and after the war, in the occupation forces in Japan. In 1947, he became partners with Jack Taylor in an Oldsmobile/Nash dealership in South Gate. In 1957, he acquired his own Oldsmobile dealership in Anaheim. The first facility was a converted gas station on North Los Angeles Street (Anaheim Boulevard) with a one-car showroom, employing twelve people. In 1963, the dealership was moved to a more modern facility at 1300 S. Anaheim Boulevard. In 1970, Victor became one of the first Honda automobile dealers. Honda was an upstart automobile company at the time with a compact car that was not very popular and most dealers turned down the opportunity to sell Honda. In 1973, Victor was joined by his son, Dennis in the business and the two quickly became partners and continued that partnership until Victor's passing. Hondas quickly gained in popularity with the introduction of the Civic in 1973. In 1991, the Honda dealership expanded to the point where it became necessary to build a separate facility in the Anaheim Auto Center. Also in 1991, the GMC Truck franchise was acquired. In 2000, the Buick and Pontiac franchises were purchased, Oldsmobile was terminated and the three remaining GM franchises were also moved to the Anaheim Auto Center. Today, forty-five years later, the company employs 220 employees between the two dealerships. Victor was the first president of the Orange County Automobile Dealers Association and served on many dealer councils and other industry-wide dealer leadership positions. He also served throughout the community in many charitable causes including the Optimists Club, as president, a member of the Free Masons, CHOC, YMCA, OC Performing Arts Center and many other charities. Vic was a great lover of the outdoors. He enjoyed golf, hunting and fishing trips around the world. He enjoyed socializing with his many friends and was well liked by all. The Orange County Register named him Sexiest Man in Orange County in 1995. Vic was a long time resident of both Dana Point and Indian Wells. He is survived by his wife, Karen of Dana Point, his brother George "Dobber" of Denver, CO, his son Dennis of Anaheim, daughter Victoria Woods of Salem OR, six grandchildren, Travis, Roberta, Sanya, Jared, Aubrey and Eric, and four great-grand daughters. Seven family members are continuing his legacy in the family business. Even in his last days, working in the family business brought him great pleasure. Services will be held today, Thurs. Aug. 8th at Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana at 11 a.m.

Harper, Mr.
Mr. Harper - Walsenburg World - November 21, 1901 - Bad Accident - A serious accident occurred at Bowen last evening that resulted in the death of a colored man named Harper and the probable fatal injury of an old gentleman named James Miller, a miner. The accident occurred on the 1,800 foot tramway. Miller was walking down the tram and was near the bottom when he was struck by a car that had gotten away from its moorings above. Harper _______ when it struck the bottom. Mr. Miller is at the hospital suffering from injuries which it is thought will prove fatal. His right leg was cut off, his left arm broken and skull fractured. He is 56 years of age and was living with a son at Bowen. His wife is in Illinois. We could learn nothing about Harper except that he was employed at the mine. The accident was caused by the breaking of a rope which held the cars before they were started down the tramway, which is very steep, a 56 percent grade. The coroner will investigate who was responsible. Trinidad Advertiser.

Harris, Edward
Edward Harris – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – May 18, 1876 – Murder of a Deputy Sheriff – The La Plata Miner gives the following account of the murder of Edward Harris, deputy sheriff of La Plata county, on Sunday morning, April 23d: "It appears some trouble existed about a water ditch, between a person by the name of Lamb, and the Lambert family, composed of father and three sons, who were formerly residents of Silverton. A warrant was issued by the local magistrate, upon the complaint of Lamb, for the arrest of Louis Lambert, and was placed in the hands of Sheriff Harris, who attempted to make the arrest, but was forcibly resisted and threatened by Louis. He then summoned a posse comitatus of fifty-eight men, who surrounded the Lambert house by daylight on Sunday, April 23d, and Sheriff Harris, advancing toward the house, called on Louis to surrender. Receiving no reply he repeated the demand, upon which a shot was fired through an aperture in the house, from a rifle, the bullet taking effect in Sheriff Harris' head, killing him instantly. The posse then kept up a brisk fire upon the house, under cover of which two of the number, Messrs. Sackett and Stibbins, recovered the body from where it had fallen, and in doing so were shot at three times from the house, and received close "calls" each time. After removing the body the posse withdrew for consultation, during which time Hugh Lambert, the father and two of the sons, Louis and Richard, ran out of the house and escaped, a number of shots being fired after them without effect. Riley, the youngest of the Lambert boys, was placed under arrest, but no charges being preferred against him, was discharged. Deputy Sheriff Harris was a single man, about thirty-eight years old, and hails from Rhode Island.

Hearn, Winona Mae
Winona Mae Hearn - Huerfano World - December 7, 2000 - Today we mourn, but tomorrow her laughter will return to our hearts. The depth of our grief is measured by our love ... and God knows how we loved her. The beauty of rainbows, sunrises and sunsets are but reflections of her. Winona Mae Thorne was born to Wallace and Mary Garritson Thorne on Oct. 30, 1934 in Walsenburg. Her mother passed away when she was only four and she spent the rest of her childhood raised by her "Aunt Ruth" and "Uncle Clarence" Clair on a ranch north of Walsenburg. During her early years she was active in Rainbow Girls and advanced to Worthy Advisor her senior year. She graduated at the age of 16 from Huerfano County High School and received a band scholarship to the University of Denver where she graduated in 1955 with a BS degree in business education. Winnie developed her lifelong love of the legal business and politics while putting herself through college. She was employed by a law firm in Denver when she met Roger Paul Hearn of Bristow, IA. They married on a Sunday afternoon, Jan. 27, 1957 in the Park Hill Methodist Church. After her marriage she moved with Roger to Hammond, IN, then Fort St. John, BC, Canada, settling in Idaho Falls, ID in 1959 where Roger was employed as an engineer for Steams-Rogers. In Idaho Falls she continued working as a legal secretary until 1969 when she became a field representative for Congressman Orval Hansen. She continued to be active in politics and the legal profession until she retired in 1991. We will always remember Winnie for all the ways she thought of and cared for others. She enjoyed sharing with family and friends her beauty she created in her love of flowers and the outdoors. She especially loved the time spent at her and Roger's cabin on Palisades Lake boating, snowmobiling and watching the many birds and wildlife. She took great pleasure in being a part of her daughter Lori's life and most especially the lives of her grandchildren, Brant, Cassie, Brianna, Mike and Zack. Her concern for others reached beyond her family to all of her dear friends over the years. She also enjoyed her work as a volunteer at Sacred Heart Hospital Auxiliary and her involvement in the Skyline Booster Club where she and Roger served as president in 1983. Over the past eight months Winnie courageously fought a battle against cancer. It frustrated her beyond measure that she could not continue to care for others as she always had. She passed away on November 27, 2000. The family wishes to thank Dr. Krell, Dr. Hodson, Dr. Debruyn Kops and especially the nurses at EIRMC for their special kindness and care. Winnie is survived by her husband, Roger; half-sister, Judy Irwin Fair (Jerry) of Breckenridge; half-brothers, Joe Thorne (Penny) of Loveland and Don Thorne (Patty) of Pueblo; her daughter, Lori Ann Peterson (Harry) of Salt Lake City, UT and her five grandchildren.

Heath, Mr.
Mr. Heath – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – July 18, 1878 – The Lake County Sensation – Further Particulars of the Shooting of That Female Horse Thief – Our correspondent "Spectator," writing from Buena Vista, Lake county, gives the following particulars of the shooting of the female horse thief, mentioned in our special telegram yesterday: "Lake county is still ahead, and doing her best to remain so. Yesterday morning about five, I was woke up by a succession of shots being fired close to my house. I immediately got up to see what was going on and discovered several men on the bank of the river, about two hundred yards below my house, firing towards the river. I dressed myself as soon as possible, and went to see what was up. I approached the spot towards which their fire was directed, and was ordered to stop as I might get hurt, which order I immediately obeyed. It appears that there had been some horses stolen from Garland and the parties losing them had tracked them and overtaken them here and found them in possession of two men, as it was supposed at that time. They were ordered to surrender, which they refused to do and backed their refusal by drawing their weapons and opening fire, when a general skirmish commenced, the thieves running down to the river and sheltering themselves under the bank. At this time your correspondent arrived on the scene. It was found necessary to divide the foes and send two on the other side of the river so as to drive them out, so there were two men sent across, and when they commenced firing, one of the two came out in sight and was shot through the chest and died in about six hours. When the firing ceased the other man was found dead, shot through the neck, and was found to be a woman. A justice was called and a jury empanelled and verdicts rendered and the bodies washed and dressed in clean clothes, a coffin made and both bodies put in the same case and buried all complete in one day." The Female Horse Thief – Further Particulars of the Affair – Our correspondent "Spectator," at Buena Vista, Lake county, writes the following additional particulars of the late sensation at that place: "I left my letter yesterday incomplete in regard to the description. The man was about five feet eight inches in height, rather thick set, dark or brown hair, blue eyes and was about thirty years of age. The woman was rather small or below an average height, light hair, hazel eyes and about twenty-five years old. I questioned the man after he was wounded, but he would not tell anything in regard to himself of the woman, except that she was his wife. When I asked him what we should do with her, he said – "For God's sake give her a decent burial." We could not find anything on either of the bodies to give any trace of who they were. I have since learned that the man's name is Heath and that he was in the habit of hunting in the neighborhood of Garland. Until recently there had been nothing seen of him, or either of them. My informant says his wife was as good a hunter as he was." Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – July 18, 1878 – Female Horse Thief – Refuses to Surrender and is Shot by Her Pursuers – Her Husband Also Killed – [Special to the Chieftain] – Helena, Lake County, Via Canon City, July 11. – During the latter part of last night a party of five men from Garland, joined by five men of Mr. Hutchinson's cattle camp, called here for fresh horses, stating that they were in pursuit of horse thieves. They started out about daylight and traced the thieves to their camp under the steep bluff two and one-half miles north of here and a little below the residence of Mr. Chas. Holmes. They found a man and apparently a boy, with three good mules and two horses. The thieves were thrice demanded to surrender which they refused, when the supposed boy opened fire with a revolver upon the party, the man firing with a repeating gun. The first volley from the attacking party broke the neck of the boy who, horror of horrors to relate, proved to be a woman in rough male attire. The man was wounded through the chest and died at ten o'clock. He refused to give their names and there was not a scrap of paper or anything about them by which they could be identified. They showed wonderful nerve. The man is about five feet eight inches high, dark hair and brown whiskers, square features, high forehead and does not betray the thief in his looks. The woman, supposed to be his wife, was short, of stout build, hair rather light and cut short. The man died while the coroner's inquest was being held over the woman. The Garland man identified the stock and one of the saddles was found to have been stolen from Hon. Joseph Hutchinson two years ago, also a meerschaum pipe stolen from Mr. Clayton, of San Luis valley a year or more ago. The thieves are supposed to have been the ones who stole Christison's team at Leadville and probably sold the same in San Juan and were now looking for a market, Leadville way, for the stock stolen below. The decision of the coroner's inquest was in accordance with the facts as above given.

Heimbaugh, Jacob
Jacob Heimbaugh – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 18, 1875 - Jacob Heimbaugh, the man who was shot by Daniel Woodriff on Saturday evening last died on Thursday evening in great agony. Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 18, 1875 – The Heimbaugh Shooting Case – A coroner's inquest was held on Friday morning upon the body of Jacob Heimbaugh, who was shot by Daniel Woodriff, in this city, on Saturday last. A post mortem examination was made by Dr. Thombs with the following result: The deceased received two wounds caused by pistol balls. The first ball struck the abdomen just above the umbilicus and about one and a half inches to the right, passed directly through the depending lobe of the liver, also cutting the intestines and passing out at the back. The second shot struck the right thigh and lodged against the head of the femur. Death resulted, of course, from the first wound. On account of the necessary absence of the coroner from the city, we were unable to obtain a copy of the verdict. On Friday afternoon Mr. Woodriff was again arrested and brought to town at the instance of the deputy district attorney, Mr. Vollrath, though for what reason does not exactly appear, and another examination was held before Justice Hart, which resulted in Mr. Woodriff being released on the same bail as that given by him at his former examination. In our account of the shooting of Jacob Heimbaugh by Daniel Woodriff, on Saturday last, we stated that Heimbaugh and Woodriff agreed to go outside of the city limits and fight. This is not exactly correct. The truth of the matter is that Heimbaugh told Woodriff, with a good deal of profanity and abuse, that he (Heimbaugh) could whip him (Woodriff) but wouldn't do it in the city, because he (Heimbaugh) didn't want to be fined or put in the calaboose. Woodriff then said that he was going home, and if Heimbaugh followed him out of town it would be his own lookout, or words to that effect.

Heimberger, Minna
Minna Heimberger – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 3, 1919 – Mrs. Minna Heimberger – Mrs. Minna Heimberger of Chicago, widow of the late Dr. David Heimberger who was at one time a leading physician of Leadville, finished a hearty dinner at the home of Mrs. Jessie Sterling, 108 East Tenth street, yesterday, slipped from her chair and died of heart trouble before medical aid could be summoned. Mrs. Heimberger arrived here Sunday last to spend a few weeks at the home of Mrs. Sterling, an old friend and widow of one of the city's prominent early-day lawyers. When she felt ill Tuesday, a doctor was summoned. Her ailment did not appear to be serious, but the physician advised her to return to a lower climate. Mrs. Heimberger accordingly planned to depart this morning for Pueblo. She ate a hearty meal at Mrs. Sterling's home yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock. At 1:35, she exclaimed that she felt suddenly ill. Before she arose from the table, she unexpectedly became limp, slipped from her chair to the floor and died before it was hardly realized that she had become sick. Mrs. Sterling sent messages yesterday afternoon to her two daughters, Miss Rose Heimberger of Pueblo and Mrs. Erma Janowitz of Chicago, widow of the late Edward Janowitz and to her son, who also lives in Chicago. Funeral arrangements will be in charge of the Moynahan and O'Malia Undertaking company. A resident of Leadville for a number of years before removing to Pueblo and later to Chicago a few years ago, Mrs. Heimberger was widely known among present-day residents of the city and since her arrival here Sunday, she had renewed many old acquaintances and friendships, being then apparently in the best health and her usual cheerful spirits. She had intended to spend several weeks here, both to meet her old friends and to attend to business matters connected with real estate she owned in Leadville. Mrs. Heimberger was born in Germany about 60 years ago, came to the United States while a girl, and moved westward with relatives to Colorado. Following her marriage to Dr. David Heimberger, she and her husband came to Leadville in the early eighties from Saguache county. Dr. Heimberger quickly became one of the leading physicians of the booming mining camp and one of its most prominent citizens. He engaged continuously in mining operations, at one time holding about 100 mining claims. The Toledo Avenue Mining company, which, tho it turned out unprofitably, was one of the largest deep mining projects undertaken in the eighties in upper California gulch, was organized and put into active operation, largely thru Dr. Heimberger's activity. He is said to have lost $40,000 or $50,000 in the concern. The doctor and his wife also became owners of many real estate properties, including the frame business building at Harrison avenue, which is the chief remaining holding of the estate. Their home in those days was a model for the times situated in West Fourth street.

Dorothy "Dotty" Mae Flores Hiatt - Colorado Springs Gazette - September 19, 2007 - Dorothy "Dotty" Mae Flores Hiatt passed into eternal life Sunday, September 16, 2007, after a sudden and unexpected ailment. She died peacefully, surrounded by her loving family. She was 87. Along with her twin sister Doris, Dorothy Mae Flores was born December 25, 1919, on the family farm outside West Point in Cuming County, Nebraska, to Boyd and Ida (Prawitz) Flores. After graduating from West Point High School in 1937, she worked at Sak's Drugstore in West Point as a soda jerk, and later became a member of the National Association of Soda Jerks. With the onset of World War II, she moved to Iowa to aid the war effort working at the Sioux City Army Air Base. She followed this service with jobs with Traveler's Insurance in San Francisco and a hospital in Chicago. She fell in love with the Colorado Springs region during a dude ranch vacation and moved here in 1948. While working at McRae Motors she met her future husband, Carl Oren Hiatt. They were married in Pueblo on December 20, 1949, and settled in Colorado Springs, where they raised three children. Dorothy loved camping, rock hunting, and fishing in the Colorado mountains. During her lifetime she traveled with her husband, three children and current Boston Terrier to Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and nearly every fishing spot in Colorado. Dotty was an avid bird watcher and gardener and spent much of her time raising roses and other blooming plants, and her home was always filled with blossoms from her garden. Another lifetime passion was owl, hummingbird, and Boston Terrier collectables. Dorothy was a skilled and gifted homemaker who kept her house immaculate and her family fed, right up to the time she entered the hospital. She cooked the best holiday dinners that any of us have ever tasted. She was especially known for her homemade strawberry ice cream and her secret potato salad recipe. Dorothy loved caring for her family, who have keepsakes of her love in the form of afghans, quilts, and other crafted items. Her hands were never idle. Dorothy was a high-scoring bowler in two different leagues, and also enjoyed crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and playing cards. Despite living in Colorado for over 50 years, she remained a Nebraska farm girl at heart and Cornhuskers fan all her life. Dorothy had been an active member of First Lutheran Church since 1958. She was involved in women's church circle, embroidering baptismal towels, setting up communion, and numerous other volunteer activities. Dorothy is survived by her husband, Carl "Ladd" O. Hiatt., son Ladd E. Hiatt, daughter Cheryl L. Haver and husband Steve, son Gregory S. Hiatt and wife Kathleen; granddaughters Emily M. Ross and Elizabeth L. Haver; grandsons Matthew R. Ross, Geoffrey R. Hiatt, and Galen G. Hiatt; twin sister Doris F. Johnson, brother Gordon Flores, brother Leigh Flores and wife Lois, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Hicklin, Alexander
Alexander "Zan" Hicklin – Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – February 14, 1874 – Alexander Hicklin, one of the pioneers of Southern Colorado, died at six o'clock yesterday morning at his ranch on the Greenhorn.  Mr. Hicklin came to New Mexico in 1849, from thence he went to California and returning therefrom, he in 1860 settled at his late residence on the Greenhorn.  Mr. Hicklin was one of the most widely known citizens in Southern Colorado.  His great generosity, his open handed hospitality and his dry and peculiar humor, rendered him popular with everybody, making the name of Zan. Hicklin a household word in all parts of Colorado and New Mexico.  The deceased had been ill for some time, and his death will be sincerely mourned by many who are indebted to him for acts of kindness.  He was about fifty-five years of age.  Pueblo Colorado Daily Chieftain – February 18, 1874 – A Pioneer Gone.  On Friday, the 13th, inst., Alexander Hicklin, one of the oldest settlers of Southern Colorado, died at his ranch on the Greenhorn, where he resided during the last fourteen years.  From his old friend, Col. J. M. Francisco, we learn the following particulars of his life: Mr. Hicklin was a native of Lafayette county, Missouri, and came to New Mexico with what was known as the "Merchant's Train," in 1846.  He, in company with many others who accompanied the train in various capacities, were mustered into the United States service just previous to Colonel Doniphan's battle at Sacremento.  In this battle he took part, and afterwards returned to Santa Fe where he remained several years.  After about two years residence in California, he came to Colorado, where he settled on the ranch which he owned at the time of his death.  The deceased was married in Taos, New Mexico, to a daughter of Colonel Bent, the first governor of New Mexico, who was killed in the well known Taos rebellion.  Few men could boast of more friends than Alexander Hicklin.  He was generous to a fault, kind and sympathetic to those in trouble, and many a traveler will bear testimony to his open handed hospitality.  There was a knack of story telling and a quaint, original kind of wit about the man that made him a welcome member of many a camp fire party.  Many amusing stories are told of him, but one would have to be present to thoroughly enjoy the point of his jokes.  It was Zan Hicklin alone who could perpetrate them, and we have never yet met a narrator who could give any idea of his curious style.  So one by one our old landmarks pass away, and although the present generation may have more refinement, we doubt very much whether it exceeds in those qualities that make the man. Las Animas Leader – February 20, 1874 – Alexander Hicklin, one of the pioneers of Southern Colorado, died at his ranch about thirty miles south of Pueblo on last Friday morning.  Mr. Hicklin went to New Mexico in 1849; from thence he went to California; and returned to this territory (in) 1860.  He then settled at his late residence on the Greenhorn. Alexander "Zan" Hicklin - Daily Rocky Mountain News - February 25, 1874 - Old Zan - Zan Hicklin, who died down on the Greenhorn a few days ago, was a thorough western character, and was noted for his startling tales of border life. The Santa Fe New Mexican recalls one of his yarns, which is thoroughly characteristic of the man: In '59 Zan entered a saloon in Salt Lake city, and there met a man whom he accosted as "Bob." The room was full of green pilgrims from the east. After the usual salutations Bob asked Zan to take a drink, which invitation Zan declined on the ground that he could not drink with a man who treated another as Bob had him. Bob entreated him to let by-gones be by-gones. "No" said Zan, "I can't do it. When we were down on the Santa Clara, and got lost, and were out of grub till we could hardly crawl, and could find no game, till we came across a squaw with her young one, I managed to kill the little Indian and drag him into camp. You were too far gone to help me. But while I went to get water, you took out your butcher knife, bored a hole in the little Indian's head and sucked out his brains, when you knew that was the only part of an Indian that I liked. No sir, I can't drink with you." And they both walked out of the saloon, leaving as gaping and astonished a crowd as ever listened to a story of border life. In addition to this we clip the following from the Pueblo Chieftain: Steve Smith tells the following good story of Zan Hicklin: It appears that on one occasion several "tenderfeet" just from the states were eating dinner at Zan's rancho. There was a dish of meat on the table, and after all of the party were seated, Zan turned gravely to one of his employes, who it appears did the hunting for the establishment, and asked: "What kind of meat is this?" The reply was "buck." "Ah, yes, I thought so," continued Zan, "squaw ain't good this time of year!" The effect on the new comers may be more readily imagined than described. They didn't eat much of that meat.

Hicklin, Alexander
Alexander Hicklin - Colorado Weekly Chieftain - September 26, 1878 - Tragedy on the Greenhorn - Shooting of Alexander and Thomas Hicklin - Our community was thrown into a state of considerable excitement on Saturday on account of one of those unfortunate tragedies which so often occur in this region growing out of disputed land grants. About noon on the day above mentioned Mr. Dick Randall, special constable, arrived in the city bringing Justice R. L. Phillips, of the Greenhorn, who placed himself in Mr. Randall's custody to answer to the charge of shooting Alexander and Thomas Hicklin, sons of the late Zan Hicklin. Our reporter called at the jail and interviewed 'Squire Phillips, who said that he lives on what is known as the "Nigger Bob" place, on the Greenhorn, just opposite Mr. Calvin Goss' ranch. The place was claimed up to two years ago by Mr. H. F. Schenck, whose right to it 'Squire Phillips purchased. The land is included within the limits of the Hicklin grant, to which no title has yet been issued by the government authorities. 'Squire Phillips settled on the place last year, when the two Hicklin's accompanied by a cousin of their's came almost everyday and threatened him. He left his furniture in the house, becoming frightened, and went to live with a friend of his named Marshall, who resides at the mouth of the Graneros, a short distance off. The Hicklin boys came and carried off all the hay from the place. After that 'Squire Phillips rented a portion of the house to the school board, still leaving his furniture in one of the rooms. After school closed Alexander Hicklin and his wife took possession of the house and lived in it for a short time, two or three weeks, and then left. Phillips gave a friend of his, a Mr. Carpenter, leave to occupy the house, and after Mr. Carpenter went there the Hicklin boys would come every day or two and order him off. After Mr. Carpenter left he locked up the house and Alexander Hicklin broke in a window, went inside and nailed up the doors. About three weeks ago 'Squire Phillips took possession of the place himself. On Friday the Hicklin's sent Mr. Ghastaine to cut the hay on the place on shares. 'Squire Phillips declared his intention to have one half of the hay, when Thomas Hicklin struck him on the side of the head, knocking him down and otherwise abusing him until Mr. Chastaine talked to him and made him ashamed for stricking an old man who is an invalid. After this difficulty 'Squire Phillips warned the Hicklin's not to come back to the ranch again. On Saturday morning they returned, shortly after sunrise, and commenced loading up the hay. Squire Phillips came from the house with a double-barrel shotgun, and saying to the Hicklin's, "I told you not to come here again," and fired both barrels at them. Mr. Dick Randall, who was present when the shooting occurred, says that Alexander Hicklin stood within fifteen or twenty-five feet of 'Squire Phillips and received one of the charges, supposed to be buckshot, in his stomach and bowels. Thomas Hicklin turned to run and received several balls in his side and arm and one in the back of his head. When Mr. Randall left Alexander was able to talk and asked for his wife, but Thomas was speechless and apparently dead. We have since learned that Alexander is dead and Thomas can not recover. 'Squire Phillips, who is a justice of the peace of his precinct, immediately after the shooting appointed Mr. Dick Randall a special constable, gave himself up and came to the city. 'Squire Phillips is a man between forty-five and fifty years of age, very gray and a confirmed invalid from consumption and heart disease. During our reporter's conversation with him yesterday he was obliged to pause frequently to catch his breath. He is a native of Vermont, and has been in Colorado about four years. He was a captain in the army during the war, a very peaceable quiet citizen and much respected by his neighbors. A gentleman who left the scene of the tragedy a short time after it occurred, gives a heart rending account of the scene. The boys were lying on the hillside where the tragedy occurred, Alexander Hicklin's young wife mourning over the dead body of her husband and Mrs. Hicklin, the mother of the boys, distracted with grief trying to render some aid to Thomas, who was at that time insensible. Thomas' recovery is said to be impossible. The unfortunate affair has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood, and both parties have the sympathy of many friends. We have stated the facts just as we obtained them, and have no desire to favor or screen anyone connected with the affair.

Hicklin, Talman
Talman Hicklin - Colorado Daily Chieftain – January 15, 1873 - The Fatal Bullet – Bloody Result of a Trivial Quarrel – On Monday evening last, the 13th inst., at 7 o'clock, Mr. Talman Hicklin, a half brother of Alexander Hicklin, one of the old pioneers, who resides on the Greenhorn, was shot and killed by a chum and fellow workman named Sam Perry. Briefly stated, the causes which led to the fatal tragedy are as follows: Perry had been out herding cattle, and upon returning, walked into the cabin and pitched his saddle down on the floor in a careless manner. In doing so one of the stirrups struck Hicklin, and the latter, not relishing such treatment, spoke roughly to Perry, and warned him to be more careful. One word brought on another, until at last Hicklin, who was a large, powerful man, sprang up and challenged Perry to a fistic encounter. Perry declined this, on the ground that they were unevenly matched, but informed Hicklin that he would fight him with pistols. By way of reply, Hicklin at once rushed for a carbine standing in the corner, while Perry, drawing his revolver, quietly stepped outside the cabin, and waited for his antagonist. In a moment after Hicklin appeared at the door, and both men fired simultaneously, Perry receiving a ball through his hip, which inflicted a shocking wound. At the first fire Hicklin did not seem to be hurt, when Perry fired again with fatal results. Hicklin threw up his arms, staggered off a few paces, sank down upon his knees, fell forward on his face, gasped once or twice, rolled over and was dead. The leaden messenger had performed its work, and a trivial dispute had ended in murder. Up to the present writing we have been unable to learn whether any arrests were made. Colorado Daily Chieftain 1-17-1873 We were informed last night, just as we were going to press, that an officer was sent for Perry, the murderer of Hicklin, but on arriving, found him dead. Colorado Daily Chieftain 1-22-1873 Arrest Of Perry – Contrary to previous reports, the wound received by Sam Perry, the Hicklin murderer, is not dangerous, and he will soon recover. On Monday last, Sheriff Allen set out with the intention of bringing Perry in, but finding the prisoner unable to move, he left him in the charge of a constable, with instructions to report at Pueblo with his charge at the first opportunity. Perry is now in the grip of the law, and will soon bring up in the county jail. Colorado Daily Chieftain 1-31-1873 Mr. Charles Johnson arrived in town yesterday with Perry, the man who was engaged in the dual with Hicklin. Perry has been safely lodged in the county jail; to await an examination of the matter.

He was a captain in the army during the war, a very peaceable quiet citizen and much respected by his neighbors. A gentleman who left the scene of the tragedy a short time after it occurred, gives a heart rending account of the scene. The boys were lying on the hillside where the tragedy occurred, Alexander Hicklin's young wife mourning over the dead body of her husband and Mrs. Hicklin, the mother of the boys, distracted with grief trying to render some aid to Thomas, who was at that time insensible. Thomas' recovery is said to be impossible. The unfortunate affair has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood, and both parties have the sympathy of many friends. We have stated the facts just as we obtained them, and have no desire to favor or screen anyone connected with the affair.
