Annie Incerto – Pueblo Chieftain – May 3, 1919 – Wild Man From Borneo; At Least He Looked the Part – Were you horrified, when as a child you gazed for the first time on the portrait of the “Wild Man of Borneo,” as depicted in all his savage frightfulness on the canvas in front of the side show which was adjunct of “the greatest show on earth?” If so, you would have been doubly horrified if yesterday you had seen Tony Riazzio, the Italian who killed his sweetheart on the railway tracks near the Pueblo smelter last fall. With other prisoners – a dozen or more – he was brought to the court house to be present at the setting of criminal cases, but he was such a horrible spectacle that Sheriff Thomas had him taken back to his office and soon thereafter, back to the county jail. This man has been insane or successfully shamming insanity, since the day of the cold blooded murder he committed because the girl was not willing to marry him. The hair on his head had been allowed to grow until it is eight or ten inches long, and stands up all around like bristles; likewise his whiskers have grown to several inches (in) length, and is also unkempt and rough. His head looks as large as a beer keg and as bristly as a porcupine. Facial and bodily contortions are continuous, while the eyes roll like spinning billiard balls all the while. It requires two men to assist him to walk, and all the time several persons have to stand over him even when in a chair. At times he becomes mean in addition to his disgusting acts and looks; then he fights like a demon. However, jail officials and other prisoners state that when absolutely alone, or when he thinks he is, he calms down and lies motionless. At times, when but one person is near him, he talks somewhat intelligently. Action was started in the district court yesterday looking to a thoro examination by expert alienists into this case. Pueblo Chieftain – May 11, 1919 – To Examine His Sanity – Tony Riazzio, the Italian who on September 9 of last year, killed his sweetheart, Annie Incerto, near the Pueblo smelter gate because she was not ready to marry him, is to be examined officially by the local lunacy board, as to his mental condition. An order to that effect was issued yesterday by Judge Trimble, acting on request formally made, by District Attorney Hughes. Pueblo Chieftain – May 22, 1919 – To Test Sanity – Tony Riazzio, known at the county jail as “the wild man from Borneo,” is to be tried by the local lunacy commission to determine whether or not he is really insane or only shamming. This Italian is the cold-blooded murderer, alleged of an Italian girl named Annie Incerto. The killing occurred near the west gate of the Pueblo plant of the American Smelting and Refining company last fall. Almost from the time he was first arrested, the man has acted like a nerve-wrecked lunatic, tho it is said that a night when all persons are supposed to be out of sight, he becomes calm. The hearing as to his sanity, or the first hearing, as there are likely to be more, will take place June 3. [See also Anne Smith.]

Ingo, Samuel F.
Samuel F. Ingo - Pueblo Chieftain - January 1, 1997 - Ringing Bell Renews Late Educator's Rite - When school begins again next week at South Mesa Elementary School, first-grade teacher Sylvia Caricato will have an old-fashioned brass bell on her desk. She said she'll use it to summon children back from recess. Thus, she'll be continuing a traditional use of the bell set by her uncle, Samuel F. Ingo, longtime School District 70 teacher, principal and administrator who died last month. The bell was given to him in 1962 at a Founders Day program in his honor held by the Mesa Parent-Teacher Association. At the time, Ingo was principal of the Mesa's five elementary schools. "I'm returning his cherished bell to rest on my desk at South Mesa. It will again be used to call students in from recess," Mrs. Caricato said. The bell is said to have been in use, serving the same function, when Ingo was a boy attending Riverview School. When Ingo retired from the district in 1976, he took the bell with him, noting, "It brings back fond memories about the time when the teacher would say, `It's your turn, Sam. Go out (with the bell) and call the kids in.' I cherish that bell," Ingo said at the time. A lifelong Puebloan, Ingo had graduated in 1929 from Pleasant View High School, earned his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Denver in 1933 and started the same year as teacher and principal at Pleasant View Elementary School. In 1935, he began an 18-year stint as principal-teacher at Blende Elementary, and in 1959 he took on additional duties as principal at Pleasant View elementary and junior high schools. He earned a master's degree in school administration in 1950 from the University of Colorado, and in 1962 he headed all the Mesa elementary schools. Despite the fact that he had had an artificial left leg since his teen-age years - the result of a farm accident - Ingo was active in sports as a youngster and into his adult years. He was, at once, a bit old-fashioned ("A little paddle did a lot of speaking" in the old days of school discipline and "I think we need to emphasize more spelling, reading and more basic math") and progressive. He helped pioneer North Mesa's nongraded, continuous progress approach to education that then attracted observers from other parts of the state. In his active years, Ingo had been involved in a whole passel of education groups and societies, and was a member of Phi Delta Kappa. Throughout most of the half-century of his married life, he took care of an increasingly ailing wife, Helen, until her death in 1982. After a massive stroke and death on Dec. 21, Ingo was buried Christmas Eve morning at Roselawn Cemetery. He and his wife left no children to survive him. And he is survived by the bell, a sturdy, six-inch, brass model that will continue, after recess at Mrs. Caricato's schoolroom, to summon school children back to the business that Ingo loved and served for so many years: Education.

Frank Irwin – Pueblo Chieftain – June 4, 1921 – Flood Extra – The largest flood visiting Pueblo since Decoration Day 1894 gutted the business and wholesale business districts of the city last night and early this mourning. More than a score of lives were reported lost when both the Missouri Pacific and the Denver and Rio Grande passenger trains were swept into the river near Nuckolls Packing company last night. Many others were reported dead. Scores of persons were caught as the rushing torrents in the lead of the flood swept around Fourth Street and down Main. Most of them escaped by climbing out the second stories of the buildings… The following information was obtained by the Chieftain representative as authentic at 3 p.m. Monday, afternoon of bodies in the morgues of the city: At United Davis-Vories Southside: Frank Irwin, Hotel De Remer. Colorado Springs Gazette – June 8, 1921 – Forty-Two Bodies in Pueblo Morgues – Five Additional Today; Several Died of Natural Causes, Says J. W. Pressy, in Charge of Identification – Pueblo, June 7 – Forty-two bodies of flood victims were in the morgues of the city tonight. Five additional bodies were recovered and one of the unidentified bodies was identified… The official list of dead follows: … Frank Erwin, Pueblo … None of the 31 (?) recovered bodies between Pueblo and Boone reported last night by the rangers are included in this list. Likewise it does not contain the names of persons merely believed to have perished. Only bodies actually in the three morgues that are in operation are included. Estimates of the deaths last night included 10 bodies reported to have been recovered on the St. Charles Mesa and a number of bodies not yet recovered but declared by searching parties to have been located under water and debris which made their removal impossible.

Aaron Iskowitz - Colorado Springs Gazette - February 17, 2005 - 8 Die as Jet Crashes Near Pueblo - Circuit City Plane Was Trying to Land in Freezing Rain -Pueblo - Federal authorities today will start looking for the reasons a corporate jet crashed and burned Wednesday morning east of Pueblo Memorial Airport, killing all eight people on board. The victims were the pilot and co-pilot, four employees of Circuit City Stores Inc. of Richmond, Va., and two others. The identities of those killed hadn't been released by late Wednesday. The twin-engine Cessna Citation C560 left Richmond on Wednesday morning en route to Irvine, Calif. It went down at 9:13 a.m. and burst into flames about five miles east of the Pueblo airport, Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said. The crash site was near a dairy farm, west of the Pueblo Chemical Depot, where the military stores chemical weapons. The plane was attempting an instrument landing in freezing drizzle after filing a flight plan citing Pueblo as its destination, FAA spokesman Mike Fergus said. However, Pueblo County Sheriff Dan Corsentino said Pueblo was to be the aircraft's second of two fuel stops. "Two witnesses said they heard loud popping," Corsentino said, adding that they didn't actually see the crash. It was traveling with a companion aircraft, Corsentino said, which was 10 to 12 minutes behind it and landed safely. He did not identify who the second plane's passengers were affiliated with but said some of them boarded commercial flights out of Denver later Wednesday to "return home." He did not give their destination. Sheriff's deputies and investigators initially searched the site for survivors. When they found none, they cordoned off the site and waited for National Transportation Safety Board investigators. Pueblo Memorial Airport Manager Jerry Brienza said the airport has never experienced "a crash of this magnitude." "As far as I know, (the pilot) didn't declare an emergency," Brienza said after talking to air traffic controllers. He described the weather at 900 feet as "broken sky," at 1,400 feet as "overcast" and said the wind was at 7 knots - about 8 mph. A small Mesa jet had just landed at the airport minutes before. "It's not uncommon for aircraft to land safely in this weather," Brienza said. Circuit City confirmed on its Web site that a plane registered to the company had crashed in Colorado and had eight people on board, four of whom were employees of the company. None was an officer, the posting noted, adding no comment would be made pending notification of relatives. "Our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones during their time of need," Circuit City CEO W. Alan McCollough said in a statement to the Associated Press. Circuit City owns about a half dozen stores along the Front Range and 50 stores within 100 miles of Irvine. The investigation will be conducted by an eight-member NTSB team from Washington, D.C., headed by chairman and CEO Ellen Engleman Conners. The team was to arrive in Colorado late Wednesday. NTSB teams are sent to multiple-fatality or air-carrier crashes. The crash site, which covered a half-mile radius, was bordered by sheriff's and coroner's vehicles who kept vigil over the wreckage and did not remove the bodies until federal authorities arrived. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Bryant said late Wednesday a representative from a local funeral home was on the scene to remove the bodies. Note: There is a memorial stone honoring the plane crash victims in Chico Cemetery in Pueblo County, Colorado. None of the victims were buried there.

Ives, Dennis J.
Dennis J. Ives - Colorado Springs Sun - August 8, 1975 - Cause of Motorcycle Accident Unexplained - Springs Policeman Bleeds to Death in Ditch - A Colorado Springs policeman lay unconscious for at least an hour in a bush-covered ditch along Interstate 25 before he bled to death following an unexplained motorcycle accident about 6 a.m. Thursday. Dennis J. Ives, 30, a six-year veteran of the force, was traveling south on the interstate from his home to the downtown police station when the accident occurred at a slight bend in the freeway just south of the Uintah Street exit. Police are investigating the possibility the officer may have hit or swerved to avoid a large dog crossing the roadway. It was the first traffic death of a Colorado Springs policeman. Ives, 3835 Mesa Grande Drive, was scheduled to report for a police line-up at 6 a.m. and then help cover the Pageant Parade of the Rockies, according to Police Chief Oren Boling. When he didn't report for work, traffic division officers called his home but received no answer. The accident scene was nearly invisible from I-25 and the first report of the accident was radioed to police at 10:27 a.m., Boling said during a noon press conference. A West Side resident saw the damaged chain-link fence bordering I-25 and told another person, who found the officer's body and the wrecked motorcycle beneath heavy bushes along a deep burrow ditch. El Paso County Coroner Raoul Urich placed the time of death about 8 a.m. "If he would have been found, he could have been saved," Urich told The Sun. The officer lay in the ditch at least an hour, probably unconscious, before he died, Urich said. The cause of death was a ruptured spleen. There were apparently no witnesses to the early morning accident. Lt. Emmett J. Butler of the police traffic bureau, estimated Ives was cruising at the 55 m.p.h. speed limit when something happened. The motorcycle left the right side of the roadway and became airborne for 72 feet after hitting a small curb and brushing a light pole at a point 5 feet above the ground, Butler said. The machine slid another hundred feet on the ground, turning over once, before slamming into the 6-foot-high chain-link fence. The motorcycle slid along the fence for about 20 feet, bending three fence poles before stopping, Butler said. There were no skidmarks on the interstate to indicate the officer used the motorcycle's brakes, and the roadway was dry, Butler said. Ives had taken the Kawasaki 900 police motorcycle home with him under a policy that allowed officers that option if they were working longer shifts for special events such as the parade and rodeo. Ives had been riding police motorcycles for 2 1/2 years and was considered to be a good "cycle jockey" by those who knew him. "He was a very conscientious officer and was rarely if ever late (to work)," Chief Boling said. "He was a dedicated officer and the whole department is very sad about the whole thing," he said. Boling said the police department would thoroughly check the motorcycle to determine if a malfunction caused the accident. A report will be issued in two or three days," he said. A police department spokesman said a fund is being established in Ives's name through the Police Protective Association (PPA). Ives was married and had three children. A similar accident at the same location in the northbound lane almost killed a policeman eight years ago. The death was the ninth traffic fatality in the city so far this year, compared with 11 at this time last year. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 8, 1975 - Ives - Arrangements for police officer Dennis John Ives will be announced later. Family requests donations to the Dennis Ives Memorial Fund care of Colorado Springs Police Protective Association. Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 9, 1975 - Dennis Ives Rites Funeral on Monday - Funeral services for Dennis J.

Mr. Ives died Thursday. He was born Feb. 16, 19_4 (digit missing), at Dixon, Ill., had lived here since 1963 and was with the police department for six years, the last two as a member of the traffic division. Mr. Ives attended St. Mary's High School. He was married Sept. 26, 1964 at Tacoma, Wash. He served for four years in the Air Force. During his time on the police force Mr. Ives worked with the Police Protective Assn., showing films about prevention of child molestation.

Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - August 29, 1975 - Malfunction Not Cause of Crash - No mechanical defects caused the crash of a police motorcycle which took the life of Officer Dennis Ives on Aug. 7, according to the results of an investigation of the wreckage. Ives was southbound on Interstate 25 when his Kawasaki 900 went out of control and off the right side of the road. Ives and motorcycle came to rest in a ditch covered with foliage. The crash occurred about 6 a.m. but was not discovered until about 10 a.m. Ives died of a ruptured spleen, according to the autopsy report. Kawasaki factory mechanics, independent motorcycle mechanics and police personnel conducted the five-hour examination of the wreckage. Traffic Lt. Emmitt Butler said the examination turned up no evidence of mechanical malfunction. Each part of the motorcycle was tested, said Butler. Police also checked a tip that a man in jail in Oklahoma had boasted of killing of Colorado Springs motorcycle policeman. The investigation showed, however, that the man was in jail in Tulsa, Okla., at the time. The investigation team included Butler; Dave Arnold, a mechanic for the city; Eldon Coleman, city garage foreman; Jack Smith, attorney for the city; Don Bymaster, owner of Sport City, Ltd., the Kawasaki dealer from whom the motorcycle was purchased; Jerry Manka, an observer from the Track and Wheel Equipment Co.; Bill Otto, a mechanical advisor for Kawasaki; and Tom Barrow and Carl Arrowood, legal representatives for Kawasaki.

Caroline Izar - Rocky Mountain News - June 3, 1894 - The Death List - Four More Bodies Found in the Pueblo Flooded District - Pueblo, Colo., June 2 - Four bodies are now in the hands of the coroner, having been found since Wednesday's flood. The dead thus far discovered are: Barney Rafferty, 60 years old, laborer, single; Joseph Scorafa, 20 years old, single, laborer; John Coama, 35 years old, single, a stranger, occupation unknown; Mrs. Caroline Izar, 60 years old. Coama's body was found at 9 o'clock this morning, standing bolt upright in a house in the flat back of Lannon's foundry on Santa Fe avenue, near the river. He had been in the city but a few days, and as he was fully dressed it is supposed that he took refuge in the house and escape was cut off by ten feet of water. Mrs. Izar's body was discovered at 3:30 this afternoon in her house at 114 North Mechanic Street, in the flat east of the city hall, where the water was eight feet deep. She had apparently gone to bed, for she was clad only in her night dress. When she awoke escape was impossible. She and her husband, John Izar, a shoemaker, have been living apart and she was alone in the house, which was not known to be occupied and was not approached by any of the numerous rescuing parties. As time goes on grave fears are entertained that the list of fatalities will be increased, and diligent search is being made in the locality where the bodies were found today, that being believed the most likely district of the occurrence of drowning. Something of a sensation was created today when the post mortem was made on the body of Rafferty, the first found, who was supposed to have met death in the swollen waters of the Bessemer ditch. The back of his head was broken and as he had just received a sum of money foul play was thought possible. His lungs contained no water, so that the suspicions are confirmed. His money and valuables, however, he had left at his boarding place and they were recovered.
