Neelley, Arthur Earl Lee
Arthur Earl Lee Neelley - Los Angeles Times - January 22, 2011 - Arthur Earl Lee Neelley , November 12, 1906- January 16, 2011 - Arthur Earl Lee Neelley was born in Walsenburg, Colorado on November 12, 1906 and as a lifelong fisherman "went around the bend" on January 16, 2011. He was an ordinary man whose 104 years were filled with extraordinary accomplishments. Having transferred from the Georgia Institute of Technology, he graduated in 1930 from the College of Commerce of the University of Southern California. There after he held various staff positions at the University including publisher of the Southern California Alumni Review. As an undergraduate he was active in campus affairs as president of the College of Commerce, as a member of Delta Sigma Pi professional commerce fraternity, and Alpha Eta Rho national aviation fraternity (charter member). He was also president of Skull and Dagger University's honorary fraternity, and permanent president of the class of 1930. After graduation, he served as the first lay secretary of the Southern California State Dental Association for about five years. He entered the service of his country in February 1942. Following his commission from Officer Candidate School, he was assigned to the staff of H.H. ("Hap") Arnold, commanding General of the Army Air Corps. He separated from active service in 1945 with the rank of Lt. Colonel and was a Legion of Merit Recipient. After the ownership and operation of a guest ranch north of Jemez Springs, New Mexico with a group of friends demonstrated that its operating season was too short to support his family, he received a gracious invitation from his lifelong friend, J. Howard Edgerton, to join the staff of California Federal Savings & Loan Association. He retired 22 years later as the Association's Senior Vice President in charge of the loan division. During his tenure Association became the largest federally chartered Savings and Loan in the country with the overwhelming majority of that growth resulting from the origination of conforming single family loans. His business success brought industry recognition by the Home Builders Association, Building Contractors Association and California Savings and Loan League, whose leaders relied on his leadership and experience. He was respected by his industry peers for his work ethic and easy going manner: but his overarching trait of character was his total honesty - he was always a man of his word and his handshake was his bond. His early years spent in Colorado endowed him with an unquenchable love and appreciation for the outdoors and hunting, fly fishing and golf were an integral part of his life. He particularly cherished his 48 year membership in the Los Angeles Country Club. Walking those beautiful fairways during his regular rounds undoubtedly contributed to his longevity. He was a prime example of the old adage that "behind every successful man there is a successful wife." His wife of seventy four years, Lucille Huebner Neelley, provided continuous loving support, guidance and encouragement in the pursuit of his endeavors, often overcoming his potential errors in judgment created by his memories of the Great Depression. Indeed, he was never able to recover from her death in 2004; and thereafter led a life of quiet desperation. He is survived by his son Allen and daughter Michelle, three grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. At his request re will be no memorial service. However, his honesty and integrity should provide the permanent infrastructure for our memories. Quite simply, he was a good man. Gates, Kingsley & Gates Moeller Murphy Directors, Santa Monica

Nelson, Brian Duane
Brian Duane Nelson - Pueblo Chieftain - June 25, 2012 - Chaffee County sheriff and search personnel have been unable to locate a 59 year-old Salida man who has been reported missing from his Clear Creek Reservoir campsite since late Friday. According to Sheriff Pete Palmer, Nelson was last seen seated alone at his campsite by other people camped nearby. Late Friday, after campers noticed no activity at Nelson's campsite, they notified deputies of their concerns for his safety. Searchers began looking for Nelson early Saturday and scaled back the effort Sunday. Dog teams from Search and Rescue Dogs of Colorado assisted but a widespread search of the area, including the reservoir waters, failed to turn up any trace of Nelson, Palmer said. Efforts were hindered Saturday as searchers were called to help an injured hiker descend from Mount Princeton, plus they were called to help find four overdue hikers on Mount Princeton and Mount Columbia who later walked out safely. Area residents and visitors are asked to report if they have seen Nelson. He is described as a white male, with hazel eyes, gray hair, a gray moustache and goatee. He is 6-foot-5 and weighs 220 pounds. Authorities do not know what Nelson was wearing when he disappeared, Palmer said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chaffee County Sheriff's Office at 719-539-2596.

Antonio Neroni - Pueblo Chieftain - January 2, 2012 - Murder & mutilation - A favorite topic among Colorado historians is the criminal case of Alferd Packer, who became a cannibal to survive a cold Gunnison County winter in 1886. But Colorado has another cannibal in its history, this one much less well-known but nonetheless fearsome. His name was Antonio Neroni, aka Tony Bavori, a young Italian immigrant who butchered four Florence residents and was plotting to go back for more when he was arrested in 1908. Packer was convicted of five counts of manslaughter for killing and eating his fellow traveling companions to survive the winter. He was behind bars in 1886 serving a 40-year sentence at Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City, today known as Colorado Territorial prison or "Old Max." Florence cannibal Neroni arrived at the prison in May 1908. Neroni's story was one of unrequited love, a terrible blood bath, dismembering his victims, prison and, finally, his own gruesome end. "To me, he (Neroni) was much more gross," said historian Susan Cochran of the Royal Gorge Regional Museum & History Center in Canon City. "Alferd Packer had to eat something or starve to death; this guy is just killing people, eating their organs and burying them in his vegetable patch." "Out of all the crimes committed in Fremont County and throughout most of Colorado, the act of cannibalism committed by Neroni was probably the most gruesome," according to "A History of Eastern Fremont County," penned in the late 1970s by Fremont Middle School's Local History class. Neroni was born in 1877 in Italy, and reportedly committed his first murder there when he was just 12. He was accused of killing a gardener on a neighboring farm by stabbing the man nine times in the chest. He served 10 years for that crime and by the time he had slashed and stabbed his way through a fourth Italian victim, he decided it was time to flee to the United States, according to the history book. In 1904, he moved to Trinidad and worked at the coke ovens near Walsenburg. "When his employer fell behind on payroll, he threatened to kill his employer's wife and children," according to the book. Instead, Neroni moved to Florence in 1907, at age 30, where he would commit, "his final and most horrific crime." Neroni lived on a ranch near the River Road in Florence and he operated a "truck garden," growing produce and selling it out of a truck. In late December 1907 and early January 1908, four people -- all Italians -- were reported missing. They included Antoinette Palmetto, 18, a housekeeper who refused to marry Neroni. Neighbors believed Neroni killed her because he was infatuated with her and she would not return his affection. Also missing were brothers Dominick and Joseph Minichiello, and the 60-plus-year-old Ercola Buffetti. Police Chief Edward Furniss investigated the case and searched the Neroni farm. He found various pieces of evidence, including a bloody knife, hatchet and ax. He also found $350. One of the bills had a stain believed to be blood. Furniss arrested Neroni. There were no bodies to prove the four missing people had been murdered, so Detective Frank Sedesky went undercover to try to find out more. "By his (Sedesky's) brave and clever undercover work, he got a complete and beastly confession from the lips of Anton Neroni," according to the history book. Sedesky posed as a county jail prisoner and said he was a member of the infamous Black Hand Society. He told Neroni he would be eligible for the society's protection -- and even an assisted jailbreak -- if he had killed enough people and qualified for membership. Neroni, who appeared eager to join, spilled the beans. "Yes, I killed those people down in Florence. I hid their bodies where the police will never find them," he said. "I killed Joe (Minichiello) too but tell (sic) the officers that Joe killed his brother, old man Buffetti and Antoinette and got away. If Furniss did not arrest me that day, I was going to kill Joe's wife and two little girls that night. "I would bury the woman in the ground somewhere, but the little girls make too much blood, so if I could get rid of them any other way, I would make soup out of them and drink the broth. I like human blood and relish eating human flesh," Neroni confessed to Sedesky. Still, Neroni would not tell where the bodies were hidden, so authorities threatened his life and he finally caved. He said he scattered some parts and buried others. According to a January 10, 1908, Littleton Independent account of the crime, "The victims have been foully murdered and their bodies chopped to pieces, the police consider certain." After digging a few feet in Neroni's garden, the police ran across the mutilated pieces of his victims. After chopping up the bodies, Neroni threw some parts into the river and authorities recovered human lungs, a thorax and the base of a tongue from the Arkansas River, according to the newspaper. "Towns below here have been notified to watch for the appearance of any evidence of murder that may come to surface," the newspaper article said. Authorities believed Neroni killed his would-be lover first, then cut the throat of old man Buffetti from ear to ear as he slept. In the same night he also killed the Minichiello brothers -- Dominick first and then Joseph. Evidence showed Joseph's head had been crushed as he put up a fight and was killed in the orchard, perhaps witnessing the attempted burial of his brother before confronting Neroni. Newspapers across the country carried stories of the blood-curdling crime from the San Juan Prospector in Del Norte to the Fort Worth Telegram and the Aberdeen (S.D) Daily News. "He admitted having a craving for human blood and preferred eating human flesh to other meat," one newspaper account read. By May 2, 1908, Neroni was behind bars serving a life sentence at Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City. But his cannibalistic ways didn't change. "He fought frequently and was disliked by other inmates. Since his term began in the state prison, he has on several occasions attacked others several times using his teeth and biting chunks of flesh from his victims," according to a Florence Daily Citizen article. According to a prison log sheet carefully preserved by the Museum of Colorado Prisons, 201 N. First St. in Canon City, Neroni was written up for fighting, a vicious assault on another inmate during which he struck him on the head with a shovel, refusing to work and jumping on another inmate. By August 20, 1924, Neroni was dead at the age of 46. The prison log book indicated Neroni died Aug. 20, 1924, at 1:30 a.m. at the hospital of "traumatic shock," the result of an altercation with two other prisoners. Guard James Tillman reported that he saw Neroni wielding a knife in an effort to stab convict Jack Robinson and that Robinson and another inmate, W.P. McCoy, beat Neroni and he died . However, a coroner's jury found that Neroni's death also was caused by the guard, Tillman. A Daily Record article indicated the courtroom was packed for the coroner's jury inquest. Several inmates testified they saw Tillman strike Neroni on the side of the head and that Tillman and the two inmates kicked Neroni while he was down. Tillman reportedly asked McCoy to join in saying, "Kill him," and Tillman also was seen jabbing Neroni in the stomach with a broom handle. Reports said Neroni was begging for mercy and screaming in pain during the attack and that McCoy wanted to stop it, but Tillman answered that he didn't care if he killed Neroni. None of the inmate witnesses saw Neroni with a knife as Tillman reported. Tillman was charged with Neroni's murder Aug. 27, 1924, after the coroner's jury verdict. That same day, Neroni's body was released and buried at the Colorado State Penitentiary burial ground -- a plot known as Woodpecker Hill at Greenwood Pioneer Cemetery. Unclaimed inmates were buried with a generic "CSP Inmate" marker. His exact resting spot would be impossible to pinpoint, Cochran said. On April 21, 1925, Tillman's trial started. Along the way, jurors were advised that Tillman could not be convicted of murder and they had the option of returning either a manslaughter or an assault verdict. "There was little or no interest unlike the inquest when the courtroom was packed," according to an April 23, 1925, Daily Record article. Tillman was found guilty of assault and ordered to serve six months in the county jail. He had already served four months of that sentence at the time of his conviction. McCoy and Robinson never were charged in Neroni's death. McCoy, who was serving a prostitution sentence, was discharged Feb. 9, 1927; and Robinson, who was serving a sentence for taking indecent liberties with a child, was discharged on April 26, 1933, according to the prison museum records.
William Nesbit Pueblo Chieftain October 11, 1918 The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Eph Nesbit will regret to learn of the death of their 19-year-old son William, which occurred at the family home, 627 Gaylord St., Denver, on Monday, October 7, 1918. "Willie," as everybody called him, was taken sick with Spanish influenza on Sunday, which quickly developed into pneumonia, and he died on Monday. His brother Fred, who is in the United States service in Nebraska, was in the state at the time on furlough and wired for an extension of time, so he could remain until after his brother's funeral, but permission to remain did not reach him in time, and he had to return to the radio unit with which he is connected. Immediately upon reaching his destination his furlough was extended, and he returned to Denver in time to attend the funeral, which occurred yesterday from the Olinger Chapel in North Denver. The bereaved family have many friends in Pueblo who extend sincere sympathy in this sad hour of affliction.

Dale Nichols - Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph - June 5, 1984 - Man Ruled Insane After Slaying Dies in State Hospital - Dale Nichols died of natural causes Sunday in the Colorado State Hospital, where he had been confined for eight years following his acquittal by reason of insanity in the slaying of the husband of his ex-wife. State hospital officials would not disclose the exact cause of death because of confidentiality laws. Nichols, 49, had petitioned the 4th District Court for his release many times during his confinement, but was turned down because hospital officials said he was not ready to be released. He finally got a hearing in May 1983 after he argued that he was deprived of his constitutional rights because his attorney went against his wishes when he entered the insanity plea in 1976. Following that hearing on May 18, 1983, District Judge Matt Railey ruled that Nichols had not been deprived of his rights. His ruling followed testimony from Nichols' former lawyer, Frank Simons, that the insanity plea seemed the best course to follow. Simons said when he interviewed Nichols about the slaying of William Gibson, Nichols told him he believed his ex-wife and her new husband were committing adultery and that Jesus advised him he had no alternative but to kill the new husband. Railey ruled that under those circumstances, the plea was proper. He said the law allows an insanity plea over a defendant's objections, and he said the evidence "was clear that Mr. Nichols was insane at the time of the commission of the alleged crime." According to police reports, Gibson, 31, came home from church on Dec. 7, 1975, to find Nichols sitting in a chair with a shotgun. Nichols allegedly killed Gibson with one blast from the gun. He was charged with first-degree murder. In his bid for release in 1983, Nichols told the judge he had to get out of the hospital "before I lose my mind." After he was denied release, Nichols continued his efforts on both the federal and state court level but did not have another hearing.

Guillermo Cruz Noriega, 20, died at a hospital after being shot by two Pueblo police officers early Thursday at the intersection. An autopsy Friday showed Noriega died from "multiple gunshot wounds to the thorax," or chest. How many times Noriega was shot was still being evaluated, Pueblo County Coroner James Kramer said. The East Side intersection had been cordoned off until Friday afternoon while members of the 10th Judicial District's Critical Incident Team gathered evidence and reconstructed the shooting scene. The heavy snowfall made collecting evidence difficult, Deputy Chief Andy McLachlan said. "The snow has been our enemy but we finally got past it," he said. Noriega was shot after he reportedly held his girlfriend, 19-year-old Jesseca Duran, at knife point. Duran escaped with a minor cut to her throat, police said. The names of the officers involved have not been released. "With the holidays close, we're going to keep their names close to the vest. They were involved in a traumatic event and we have to give them some time to recover," Chief Luis Velez said. Pueblo Chieftain - December 27, 2011 - Guillermo "Memo" C. Noriega, 20, of Pueblo, went to be with the Lord on Dec. 22, 2011. He was preceded in death by his father, Guillermo Noriega. Memo is survived by his wife, Tillie; his daughter, Izabella; mother, Judy; siblings, Craig (Tasha), Luis (Janelle), Michael (Bernadette), Ramon (Tajah) and Sissy; and numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Viewing, 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Romero Chapel. Memorial service, 10 a.m. Friday, Romero Chapel. Family and friends will be received at Romero Courtesy Hall following service. In lieu of food and flowers, donations may be made in memory of Memo to Romero Funeral Home. Pueblo Chieftain - December 30, 2011 - Initial autopsy results released in police shooting - Preliminary autopsy results showed Guillermo Noriega, who was shot and killed last week by Pueblo police, sustained seven "penetrating injuries," the coroner said. "Some were gunshot wounds, some appear to be graze wounds. We have to see if the wounds are exits or entries," Pueblo County James Kramer said Thursday, adding he's awaiting results of the final autopsy. Chief Luis Velez said officers fired a total of eight rounds at Noriega, 20, who reportedly held his 19-year-old girlfriend at knife point. Velez said he didn't believe the number of shots fired was excessive. "The short answer is no. In the heat of the moment, when officers have to open fire, it's very easy for anyone to say it's excessive. If you're asking me if I thought it was excessive, the answer is no," Velez said. Officers Thomas DeCesaro and Stephen Biggs shot Noriega, 20, on the corner of Eighth Street and Monument Avenue early on Dec. 22. After being shot he died at Parkview Medical Center Noriega had his girlfriend at knife point and didn't follow the officers' commands to drop the weapon, police said. Noriega was shot after the girlfriend, Jesseca Duran, escaped his grasp with a minor cut to her throat. DeCesaro and Biggs remain on paid administrative leave. Noriega's funeral is 10 a.m. today at Romero Funeral Home.

Norton, John Freeman
John Freeman Norton - Pueblo Chieftain - November 1, 2009 - John Freeman Norton, soldier, historian, gold miner, steelworker and fine art dealer, died in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Oct. 6, 2009, of congestive heart failure. He was 81. John was born to Vera and Harold Norton on Feb. 1, 1928, in Pueblo, Colo., the youngest of three children. He led an adventurous and interesting life. John served as a weatherman in the Philippines in World War II, beginning a lifelong interest in cloud formations and meteorology. He graduated from Colorado College with high honors with a degree in history, another interest he never abandoned. As a newlywed young man he went with his father and brother-in-law to Alaska to prospect for gold and silver. They did not hit it rich in the usual sense of the word, but John forged a lifelong bond with his fellow adventurers, and set out upon his own path of eclectic pursuits. After his marriage, John became a scarfer in a steel mill, Colorado Fuel and Iron in Pueblo, Colo., a hot, demanding and potentially dangerous job at which he worked for 22 years. During this time, he never abandoned his other interests. He was very interested in politics, and ran for Congress from his home state of Colorado in the 1960s. At the same time, he also pursued his lifelong interest in pre-Columbian relics, Polynesian instruments of war, Western art and sculpture, Native American and other tribal art, Western American art and sculpture and antiques, all of which he avidly studied, collected, sold and traded. In 1970, John met Gerald Peters and moved to Santa Fe. Jerry and John became dedicated friends and partners. To his friends, John was the smartest man they ever knew, and he enjoyed sharing his knowledge. He was honored with a citation from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for his role in the recovery of stolen art. John was the Hemingway of the art world and was one of America's great storytellers on par with Mark Twain and Jack London. He had a joie de vivre and a deep and abiding love and respect for literature, language and humanity. He was honored and humbled to be surrounded by loving friends and associates who shared his passion for the world of art, book collecting and nature. John's interest in art continued when he moved to the scenic coast of Santa Barbara, Calif., in 1990. In California, John gathered, as he had in Santa Fe, a circle of art dealers, collectors and other devoted friends who appreciated his depth of knowledge, respect for and interest in learning and culture, and his passion for life. He will be remembered as a true intellectual, a person with a brilliant mind and a great knowledge of the world and a great talent for friendship. He is survived by his wife, Lucy; five children, John T, David, Paul, Heather and Eve; five grandchildren, Sandra, Ridvan, Jameela, Nooreieh and Brace; and his two sisters, Rita Callahan and Margaret Mary Foley. John is shown in this photograph taken by Myron Wood which appeared in Colorado: Big Mountain Country published by Doubleday & Co., 1969. A memorial will be held at 3 p.m. Nov. 21 in Santa Barbara at the Sullivan Goss Gallery, 7 E. Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, and a memorial in Santa Fe will be held at 5 p.m. on Dec. 7 at Rio Chama, 414 Old Santa Fe Trail. John wished his remains to be scattered at sea.
