Jack Bolton – Pueblo Star Journal – January 1, 1910 – Mrs. Lottie Walker Shot At Beulah Home – Tragedy Occurred at Walker Home Early This Morning - Believed That Mrs. Walker Tried to Prevent Man from Killing Himself – Jack Bolton. a consumptive, who came to Beulah from Joliet, Ill., three years ago for his health, this morning at 7:30 o'clock, shot Mrs. Lottie Walker, with whom he had been boarding since arriving in Beulah, and then shot himself. Bolton had been working for Mr. Walker most of the time since boarding with the Walker family. Bolton died late this afternoon. Mrs. Walker may recover. Bolton was despondent because he felt that he would not recover his health, and had evidently determined to kill himself. Carl Walker, husband of the woman, and his brother, left the house and there had been no intimation to them by Bolton to the effect that he was going to kill himself, but after the men folks had left the house Bolton entered the kitchen where Mrs. Walker was working and told her of his plan and produced the gun, which she attempted to take away from him. She was unsuccessful and he turned upon her and shot her twice through the back. Bolton, seeing what he had done, then turned the gun upon himself and fired a bullet through his right temple. Bolton was not a man of any means, having less than $250 in money. His folks are reported to stand well in Joliet. Word of the shooting was sent to them this morning. In Bolton's pocket was found the following notes well written. “I want to be buried in Beulah as I don't want my brother in Chicago to go the great expense of taking my body back East. His address is 628 West Sixty-ninth street, Chicago.” Word was sent to this city shortly after the shooting, and Dr. Wilbur Lucas, a Star Journal reporter, John Morrison of the Mc Mahon & Collier undertaking firm and Coroner J. J. McDonnell went immediately to the scene. It is thought by Dr. Lucas at a late hour this afternoon that there is hope for Mrs. Walker, but no hope is entertained for the recovery of Bolton, who was in a very weakened condition from the effects of consumption, from which he had suffered greatly of late.
