Gianardi, John
John Ginardi - Walsenburg World - July 4, 1924 - Dead Man Discovered Near Ravenwood Thursday - The body of a man believed to be that of John Ginardi, who disappeared from his home on East Seventh Street on June 12th, was discovered Thursday in a partly decomposed condition on a hill on the other side of Ravenwood. The body was discovered by Sam Pacheco of Ravenwood, who was out looking for some horses. Details of the gruesome find are not available at his time, since we go to press early on account of our regular press day being on the 4th of July, but report is that there is evidence of foul play, that the body discovered had a hole in the head, and that some empty shells were found near the body, but the theory of suicide can not be held since there was no gun found anywhere near the body. Joe Viscoli, a son-in-law of the man is of the opinion that Ginardi was enticed away and done to death. We may be able to give more details before going to press, since an examination of the body by physicians is to be made this (Thursday) afternoon. Ginardi was last seen on Thursday, June 12th. At this time he gave some money to his grandchildren, Gulfo and Sergio Viscoli, and they reported that at that time he complained of a headache. Ginardi was missed Friday when Mrs. Viscoli, his daughter, went to the home of her father and found the house in confusion with his clothes lying on the floor. There was some money found in one of the bureau drawers, so that robbery is not thought to be a motive for any crime. The authorities were not notified of the disappearance of Ginardi until Saturday, June 14th, when a search of ht hills was made but without result until the finding of the body Thursday of this week. Ginardi was about 55 years of age and has lived in Walsenburg for the past fifteen years, and had a market garden east of the city.***** Walsenburg World - July 4, 1924 - Gianardi Was Shot, Report The Examining Physicians -An examination made by Dr. Noonan late Thursday afternoon disclosed the fact that John Gianardi had been shot. The bullet entered at the outer side of the eye and ranged to the back of the skull fracturing it at the rear but did not make an exit. It does not appear, however, that the man could have shot himself since there was no gun found anywhere near him, although seven shells were found near his hat on the ground, and there was one shell in his pocket. It would rather appear that the man was murdered, and an attempt made to make it appear like suicide. An eighth ounce bottle of strychnine was also found near the body, with about one third of the contents emptied. This might show suicide were it not for the wound in the head, the shells and the absence of any gun. The coroner informs us that the body will be retained until Tuesday, and that he will consult the district attorney before deciding upon an inquest. There is very little evidence that can be put before a jury. John Gianardi's daughter visited the body at the undertaking establishment of Furphy Brothers and identified the body as that of her father. John Gianardi - World Independent - July 4, 1924 - John Gianardi Found Dead with Bullet Hole Thru Temple - Bible And Poison Lying Near Body Discovered At Ravenwood Today. Murder or Suicide? That is the question that officials in the sheriff's office are trying to answer as the result of the discovery of a body that has been identified as belonging to John Gianardi, who disappeared from his home here on June 12. The gruesome find was made by Sam Pacheko, a miner at the Ravenwood mine, who was attempting to find a team of horses that had strayed away during the night. When first discovered, the body was almost entirely disintegrated, and the eyes had dropped out, but a bullet hole thru the right temple and another thru the top of the dead man's skull seems to lead Sheriff Charles Cornwall into the theory that the man was murdered. The fact that no gun, and that several empty shells were found in the near vicinity, leads officials further into this theory, and they are preparing to make a concentrated search for clews that might lead into finding a supposed murderer. On the other hand, a bottle of deadly poison and a Bible were found beside the body, indicating as far as one can see that suicide had been the case. The sheriff, accompanied by Deputy Sheriff Tom True and Coroner Gabe Furphy, left immediately for the scene of the tragedy near Ravenwood, when informed by Pacheko, After finding the bottle of strychnine near the body, the officials brought the ghastly thing to the morgue where it is being examined to find if any poison had entered the body. True expressed the opinion that Gianardi had committed suicide, and that a stranger had stolen the gun from the dead body, without reporting the find to the sheriff. At the time he disappeared, Gianardi left practically no clew as to where he might be. He left his home, apparently to return again, after presenting two of his grandchildren with a dollar each. A posse searched for several days after his disappearance, but gave up the search as hopeless. The dead man was 55 years old. He had lived here for 15 years, and had worked at the Walsen mine most of the time. Before leaving his home on June 12, Gianardi complained of having a headache. ***Walsenburg World - July 8, 1924 - John Gianardi Funeral Sunday - Funeral services for John Gianardi, whose dead body was found on the hill near Ravenwood, was held at the Catholic church Sunday. Gianardi had been missing for about three weeks at the time his body was found. At the inquest held over the remains the jury found that Gianardi came to his death from a gun shot wound received in the head, but did not determine whether the killing was felonious or not. John Gianardi has lived in the Untied States for the past twenty-five years, most of that time in Walsenburg. The deceased is survived by two sons, Marcelino Gianardi of Kansas City; and John Gianardi, Jr., of this city; and by four daughters, Mrs. Teresa Viscoli, Mrs. Lena Ferri, and Miss Stella Gianardi of this city, and Mrs. Jennie W. Nickol of Kansas City. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery under the direction of Furphy Brothers, undertakers. ***World Independent July 8, 1924 - Inquest Is Held Over Body Of John Gianardi - The inquest over the body of John Gianardi, 50 year old resident of this community, whose body was found near Ravenwood Thursday by Sam Pacheko, was held Saturday afternoon in the court room, with Sheriff Charles Cornwall, Dr. G.M. Noonan and Sam Pacheko testifying as the principal witnesses. After hearing the evidence, which brought out the fact that Gianardi was shot thru the head, the coroner's jury brought in a verdict declaring that he came to his death as the result of a bullet wound that was inflicted by himself or by the hand of someone unknown. At the time of his disappearance on June 12, Gianardi complained of having a headache. Before leaving his home he gave two of his grandchildren a dollar each. This is thought by some officials to indicate the deceased committed suicide, since a prayer book that belonged to his dead wife and a bottle of deadly poison were found along side of the body. The funeral was held Sunday from the Furphy Undertaking parlors.

Gideon, Henry
Henry Gideon – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 30, 1879 – About one o'clock this morning a row occurred in Dillett's saloon, between a white man and a negro named Henry Gideon. The former bounced a chair over the head of the latter, who retreated, but soon returned armed with a revolver and opened fire from the outside upon his enemy in the room. The first shot struck a peaceable spectator named Roberts in the left shoulder, the ball ranging inward and backward. Whether Gideon fired more than once is not known, as at that juncture Louis Kreeger, the night police, fired two shots, one striking the negro in the head and glancing upward, the other passing through or near the heart. He ran a few steps and fell dead. The verdict in Trinidad is Trinidad justice, or served him right.
