Carnes, George T.
George T. Carnes - Walsenburg Independent - June 24, 1937 - Sheriff Says Carnes Murder Committed By Local Youth - State Prison Officials Asked To Bring Bloodhounds To City - Swift Says Crowd of Onlookers Ruined Chances of Catching Gunman; However Search Is Made For Gun - That Shot Spanish-Made Bullet; 12 Suspects Go Free - With 12 suspects questioned and released in Walsenburg and at least a half-dozen grilled in nearby cities, officers investigating the killing of George Carnes, victim of a filling station bandit, are seemingly stumped. Every suspect arrested so far has a perfect alibi and has been released. Sheriff Claud Swift states that the only possible clues were lost when crowds of onlookers jammed the driveway of the filling station at corner of First and Walsen following the killing. Sheriff Swift said that 30 minutes after the shooting he called the state penitentiary and asked that officers bring down bloodhounds to check the trail of the killer. However, when he told prison officials that the crowd had gathered on all sides of the building they informed him that there was “no use” to bring the dogs down. The sheriff says the bullet used to kill Carnes was made in Spain and was very old, the shell being tarnished black with age. Swift asserted that he was positive the job was pulled by a Walsenburg youth and several others are now under suspicion. Officers in all cities and towns in the Rocky Mountain region have been instructed to check hobo camps and question all suspects. World Independent – July 16, 1937 – Suspects in Carnes Murder Watched by Thousand Eyes – Each day one or more citizens of Walsenburg announce they have joined forces with the city's “amateur sleuths” and are working their own solution to the mysterious murder of George Carnes, which occurred here June 22. A reward of $1,000 for the conviction of the murderer and another reward of $100 for information leading to the culprit's arrest have prompted persons from every walk of life to build their theory on the case. Suspicious characters are being watched by a thousand eyes as each self-appointed detective dreams of being given the total reward of $1,100. Sheriff's and police officers are continuing on the case but admittedly are baffled. Carnes was shot through the heart while alone at his filling station about 8 o'clock in the evening. No money was taken from his place of business and the gunman was seen only by three young girls as he ran down an alley. Huerfano World - June 25, 1992 - This Week in Walsenburg History - 1937: George T. Carnes, filling station attendant at First and Walsen, was shot by a bandit and died of his injuries. A $500 reward has been issued.

Thomas Carpenter – 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.

James Carroll – Durango Democrat – May 30, 1903 – A Drop Too Much – Former Pueblo Man Ground to Pieces on Railway Track – Colorado Springs, May 29 – A man was run over and killed this afternoon on the Midland railroad between here and Colorado City by an express train due here at 6:30. The man was literally ground to pieces, and why his companion who was walking on the track with him did not meet a similar fate seems almost a miracle, but he jumped to one side in time to save himself. From that man it is learned that the name of the dead man was James Carroll, and that he lived in Denver, was a cook and at one time had lived in Pueblo and was employed by a hotel there, but beyond this very little could be obtained from the man, as he was quite drunk. It is supposed they had both been drinking at Colorado City and had started to walk to Colorado Springs.

Carrothers, Leo Bryan
Leo Bryan Carrothers - Lake City Times – 1900 – Little Bryan Cruthers Is Gone - Last Friday night occurred the death of Leo Bryan Cruthers, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. John Cruthers, aged 2 years, 6 months and 13 days. The little fellow had been sick several days and the last day or two he suffered terribly, so that death came as a relief. The sight of his suffering was no less pitiful than the little still white form after the spirit had flown. Physicians and friends did all in their power to give relief, but it was not for them to give. Only those who have had a great sorrow themselves can fully sympathize with the bereaved parents. To the mother is the blow doubly hard, for it is but a few short weeks since she attended the funeral of her youngest brother. The little body was taken by the parents to Pueblo Sunday and the funeral was held Tuesday. [Submitter's note: Bryan Carrothers, born 1897 died 1900. Agnes Carrothers, daughter of John and Ida May (O'Brien) Carrothers was born 16 November 1888 in Clear Creek County, Colorado; she died of diphtheria on 1 Jan 1890 in Clear Creek County, Colorado. She is buried in Alvarado Cemetery, Georgetown, Clear Creek County, Colorado. Agnes Carrothers is buried in the Georgetown, Alvarado Cemetery in Clear Creek County, Colorado.]
Lieutenant Carrow – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – May 29, 1879 – The cause of the suicide of Lieut. Carrow, of the regular army, who shot himself last week, at the Planters' house, has transpired. He was deeply in love with Miss Ella Sturgis, daughter of Lieut. Col. Sturgis, but her father did not fancy his attentions, and removed the young lady to St. Louis. Carrow's pride was hurt by this treatment, but he did not give up the suit. The sentiment of Miss Sturgis does not appear. He followed her to that city two weeks ago, and told a friend that he had gone to get a final answer to his offer of marriage. He was hopeful, too, and was unusually jovial in several social gatherings. One evening he led the german with Miss Sturgis, and embraced the opportunity to plead his case. She told him that she would send him a letter the next day. She kept her promise by a written refusal.
