Fearn, Donald H.
Donald H. Fearn – Colorado Public Defender - October 23, 1942 - Donald H. Fearn, Pueblo. W-W. Asphyxiation. Fearn received a death sentence for kidnapping, raping, torturing, and shooting a sixteen-year-old high school student, Alice Porter, the daughter of a former Pueblo detective. Thirty-six hours before the murder, Fearn's wife gave birth to their second child. Fearn abducted the victim at gunpoint off a Pueblo street and took her to an abandoned ranch. He forced her to disrobe, bound her, and burned her two dozen times with a wire he had heated in the fireplace. He then raped her, beat her over the head with a hammer, and shot her to make sure she was dead. Her body was later found in a cistern. During the crimes, a heavy rainstorm passed over the area that caused Fearn's car to sink in mud. As a result, Fearn had to walk several miles for assistance, which led to his arrest. Fearn, a twenty-six-year-old railroad brakeman, immediately confessed. He had no prior arrests, but, in his confession, told authorities that since childhood he had felt an uncontrollable urge to commit this type of crime. Fearn believed that he deserved to die. He did not appeal his conviction and was executed six months after the crimes. His last request, for a bottle of beer, was honored. The victim's father and two of her uncles witnessed the execution.

Federico, Lorenzo
Lorenzo Federico - Ukiah Daily Journal - December 3, 2004 - Ukiah, CA - Lorenzo Federico, 94, of Richmond, a musician, philanthropist and the owner of numerous New York barbershops, died yesterday in his second home in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Born to Italian immigrant parents in Segundo, Colo., Mr. Federico was brought to Auletta, a small province of Salerno, Italy, at the age of 4 after his miner father's struggles with harsh work conditions in America. The family returned to their homeland to produce and export wine. In Italy, Mr. Federico had to grow up quickly, becoming the man of the house at an early age when his father was recruited into the Italian army during World War I. He was a musical prodigy and played the soprano saxophone and the clarinet, his family said. He performed in many operas and classical works, and toured Italy with a philharmonic orchestra during the mid-1920s. Mr. Federico returned to America in 1926 -- settling in Astoria, Queens, with his sister and her husband -- and apprenticed as a barber, because many people told him that a life in music was not the most promising of careers. He also lived in Lower Manhattan before relocating to Bay Ridge. He purchased a home in Richmond in the 1970s and divided his time among Staten Island, Brooklyn, St. Petersburg, Fla., and Italy. Mr. Federico opened 14 shops in the theater district of Manhattan. His first shop, "The Rex," which opened in the late 1920s, was named after the ship that brought him to the United States. He then opened a shop at the Statue of Liberty -- the first to appear there -- and another that became the first barbershop in the city subway system at the 49th Street station in Manhattan. Throughout the years, Mr. Federico's shops were frequented by celebrities such as Arturo Toscanini, Martin and Charlie Sheen, Molly Picon, Jack Palance, Burt Lancaster, Tony Mottola and Tony Curtis. He was a philanthropist, and his generosity was acknowledged by the Sons of Italy, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, World-Wide Adopt-A-Child, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the American Cancer Society, St. Patrick's R.C. Church, Richmond, and St. Mary's Our Lady of Grace R.C. Church in St. Petersburg, Fla. Through financial sponsorship, Mr. Federico helped more than 20 immigrants in their quest for U.S. citizenship. He was an avid traveler and took more than 20 trips to Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America, and saw the United States in its entirety. Mr. Federico's passion had always been music -- his favorites being opera, classical and Latin -- but he was also an avid golfer and enjoyed horseracing, card playing, bowling and sporting events, as well as dabbling in the stock market. "Music and his love of life and people have enhanced the quality of his life. He always said you can go to music like medicine to tide you through the adversities and help your spirits soar," his daughter, Rosemary Kaufmann, told the Advance last year in a report on his 94th birthday celebration. "My husband, Ernest, was the light of his life," said Mrs. Kaufmann. Mr. Federico was a member of the Sons of Italy. His first wife of 19 years, the former Anna M. Sirgany, died in 1953. His second wife of 38 years, Maria E. Fusco, died in 1995. In addition to his daughter, Rosemary, Mr. Federico is survived by his brother, Anthony; two granddaughters, and a great-grandson. The funeral will be Thursday from the Hanley Funeral Home, New Dorp, with a mass at 10 a.m. in St. Patrick's R.C. Church, Richmond. Burial will follow in First Calvary Cemetery, Queens.

Roy Fennell – Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph – September 7, 1972 – Body of Local Man Found in Pueblo – Pueblo – (AP) – The decomposed body of a Colorado Springs man was found Tuesday in a field just south of the Pueblo Greyhound Park by a combine operator who was harvesting alfalfa. The body was reportedly that of Roy Fennell, 60, who was reported missing June 30th after he failed to return from a night at the dog track the week before. "The cause of Fennell's death likely will remain a mystery," said Dr. Harper Kerr, deputy coroner. Kerr said no autopsy would be performed because of the condition of the body. Officers from the Pueblo County Sheriff's office are investigating the death and have not ruled out the possibility of foul play. Kerr said he received information that Fennell has a history of heart trouble and took a number of medications.
