Duffy, Patrick
Patrick Duffy - Colorado Daily Chieftain - February 17, 1876 - Who is to Blame? - About two weeks since, if we recollect aright, Patrick Duffy, an old resident of Pueblo county and a perfectly harmless man, was shot by Dan Monahan, and has since died of the wound. The circumstances under which the shooting was done show a cool and deliberate murder. The quarrel originated through a gross insult offered Duffy by Monahan, and after the parties had quarreled and Monahan left the house, he (Monahan) returned next morning, armed, with the intention, as he stated of making Duffy "take back" some language he had used on the previous night. Duffy refused to retract and Monahan shot him and immediately escaped. There is nothing to show that Duffy had any arms whatever, and public opinion brands Monahan as an assassin who, for the good of the community should be prevented from doing any more damage. As soon as Monahan's escape was made known, Sheriff Ellis sent two deputies in pursuit of him, who went over to Bijou Basin, and after a search of two or three days returned without their man. Since then nothing more has been done. No one doubts that Sheriff Ellis would push this matter were some arrangement made to pay the expenses, and it is usual in all such cases as this for the authorities to offer a liberal reward, by means of which criminals are often captured. What are our authorities going to do about it? Dan Monahan was seen on the divide on Sunday evening last, and it don't look as though it would be very hard to find him, but from the course now pursued by those in authority it seems as though this red handed murderer will be allowed to roam at large to kill the next man he happens to become incensed at during a drunken frenzy. Public opinion demands that some steps be taken in this matter.
