Joseph Hunt – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 30, 1879 – Fatal Accident – At an early hour on Monday morning a man was found in an unconscious condition lying under the bridge across the Arkansas near the smelter. He had, to all appearances, been lying there since the previous evening, and from his position he is supposed to have been walking across the bridge, and to have fallen through. He struck the ground near the edge of the water, and when found was cold and stiff. He was removed to the county hospital, where everything possible was done for him by Dr. Ashcom, the county physician. He lay all day upon a bed there, blood and froth issuing from his mouth, and finally in the evening died without reviving. He was recognized as a man named Hunt, who had formerly worked at the smelter. Colorado Weekly Chieftain – October 30, 1879 – Whisky Did It – Inquest Upon the Body of Joseph Hunt – Dr. P. R. Thombs, coroner, held an inquest yesterday morning upon the body of Joseph Hunt, who was found at an early hour on Monday morning, insensible and almost frozen under the bridge across the Arkansas near the smelter. The coroner's jury consisted of Messrs. Chas. B. Dunbaugh, M. Sullivan, T. R. Jones, D. A. Phillips, Frank Clark, and M. Studzinski. Mr. C. W. Edwards testified that he had known the deceased for about ten years. He came from Europe and worked for witness' father in a livery stable at Des Moines, Iowa. He had also been employed at the smelter and by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad company. He was troubled with some disease contracted while serving in the English army in India. Witness was of the opinion that Hunt was a little crazy. Mr. J. L. Kennedy stated that as he came from work at six o'clock on Monday morning. He saw the deceased lying under the railroad bridge and heard him groan. The witness came up and found Constable Zimmer and went after Hunt. Some Mexicans had carried him to their house. Hunt had been drinking on Sunday. When found he was lying on his face. Constable Zimmer testified to bringing the man up to the jail, and finding a watch and other articles on his body, which he turned over to the sheriff. Dr. Ashcom stated that he had examined the body and concluded that Hunt died from concussion caused by the fall from the bridge and exposure. Thought he must have been under the influence of liquor. During the afternoon he lifted his head and shoulders when he had a slight convulsion. He seemed perfectly stiff and it was impossible to get his pulse up. Could find no bones broken. Dr. Duke concurred with Dr. Ashcom as to the cause of death. The jury brought in a verdict in accordance with the facts.

Hunter, A. C.
A. C. Hunter - Colorado Springs Gazette - September 16, 1929 - Three Burn to Death in Auto Near Pueblo - Crashes Into End of Bridge, Gas Explodes - Fourth's Escape From Like Fate 'Miraculous' - Pueblo, Colo., Sept. 15 - Three persons were burned to death when they were drenched with flaming gasoline after their motor car had crashed into a concrete abutment and overturned on the Walsenburg highway eight miles south of here tonight. The fourth passenger in the car was seriously injured but will recover. The dead are: A.C. Hunter, 35, Pueblo. Mrs. A.C. Hunter, 46, Pueblo. Mrs. Henry Spoor, 28, Pueblo. Lawrence Merrill, 27, of Pueblo, escaped from the wreck with a fractured rib, a fractured arm and slight bruises and burns. He was brought to a hospital here, where it was said he would recover. Merrill said the car was traveling only about 30 miles an hour when the crash occurred. Merrill, altho unable to give a coherent account of the wreck, said: "I shall never be able to tell how the accident occurred. I was riding in the rumble seat of the car and Hunter was driving. We were out for a short ride into the country. As we passed over a concrete bridge over a dry wash the car suddenly swerved and crashed into the wall of the bridge. I felt the car skid and there was a flash of light as the gasoline tank exploded. After that I knew nothing until I was on my way to the hospital here." Passing motorists who arrived shortly after the crash found the car smouldering and the bodies of the victims burned beyond recognition. Merrill was jammed between the bridge and the wreckage of the rumble seat. It seemed impossible that he could have escaped with his life, they said. Authorities who conducted a hurried investigation tonight were unable to decide on the cause of the accident. The bodies of the victims were brought here and an inquest will likely be held tomorrow, it was said at the sheriff's office. Note: Hazel Spoor is buried in Mountain View Cemetery.

Hunter, William T.
William "Will" T. Hunter - Akron Pioneer Press - May 23, 1919 - George T. and Thomas Boske, brothers, were arrested at Kenilworth, Utah, after eluding sheriff's officers in a three-day chase in the hills of Northern Colorado. This information was telegraphed to Sheriff Sam Thomas on his return from the hills. The men are charged with the murder of Will T. Hunter and Elton Z. Parks, near Pueblo, six weeks ago. Leadville Carbonate Chronicle - May 26, 1919 - Confession of Boskos - Younger of Two Brothers Gives Graphic Description of Killing of Parks and Hunter Near Pueblo - Robbery Their Motive - Cold Blooded Crime - Colorado Springs, May 21 - George Bosko, 24, made a complete confession, the police announced tonight of the shooting and killing of Wm. T. Hunter and E. C. Parks, on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11, at the El Paso county jail tonight at 8 o'clock. Thomas Bosko, 17, confessed that he accompanied his brother at the time of the killing and that he assisted him in the crime. The men were brot here from Kenilworth, Utah, by Sheriff Sam Thomas and Undersheriff W. S. Slagle of Pueblo County, and are being held in the local jail for safe keeping. The older Bosko, who is of Slav descent, said that he committed the double murder in an effort to obtain funds in order that he might take up a check of $200 which he had forged upon his father. Bosko was to have a half interest in a garage at Lafayette, Colo. His brother-in-law, S. H. McFadden, was to be his partner and it was in paying for his share of the business that he drew the bogus check. He relinquished his interest in the garage to his father and, with his younger brother, he started in search of money. The pair arrived in Pueblo on the afternoon of Thursday, April 10. It was on Friday morning that they left the city, obtaining a ride with Mrs. George Little in her car. When she dropped them they succeeded in getting another ride which carried them to the Hatchett ranch where they asked for work. Their request being denied, they proceeded to the brow of the next hill where they encountered Hunter and Parks. They were taken into the Parks car and while riding in the back seat, they overheard Hunter speak of $3,000 which he had on his person. The plan was immediately formed to kill the men, rob their bodies and to take the car to make an escape to Utah. As they approached a bridge on the Rye road about eighteen miles out of Pueblo, George Bosko drew a gun and shot Parks dead. He then turned the gun on Hunter, firing once. The pair dragged Parks from the car to the edge of the bridge and rolled him over into the arroyo below. Hunter had managed to leave the car and advanced to the bridge. Bosko fired a second shot which passed thru Hunter's chest, killing him. As his victim staggered against the bridge railing Bosko kicked his feet from beneath him and he slipped into the gully below. William Reed and Jack Parker, who approached along the road in a car at that moment, witnessed the third (second?) shot and the killing of Hunter. At the point of a gun the two witnesses were forced to turn about and leave the scene. The Boskos took a Colorado and Southern train to Lafayette at 2:35 o'clock the next morning and from there they went to Kenilworth, Utah, on April 17. The first information as to the men's whereabouts, was discovered by Sheriff John H. Weir of this county. For three days the Pueblo officers and Sheriff Weir followed a trail in the northern part of the state and, obtaining definite information, Sheriff Thomas ordered Sheriff T. F. Kelter of Price, Utah, to arrest the suspects. Fort Collins Courier - June 2, 1920 - Condemned Murderer To Get Sanity Hearing - By United Press. Denver, June 2. - Acting Governor Stephen today appointed a lunacy commission, headed by Dr. Hubert Work of Pueblo, to pass upon the mental condition of George Bosko, who was sentenced to hang during the week of June 21 for the murder of E. C. Parks and William Hunter on the Rye road south of Pueblo, April 11, 1919. George Bosko, age 28, was convicted of the double murder and sentenced to die while his brother, Tom Bosko, age 18, was sentenced to life imprisonment for his part in the crime. The double murder stirred all Colorado at the time it occurred. The two brothers had asked Parks and Hunter for a ride in their automobile and afterwards killed the two men. It is possible that as a result of the appointment of the sanity commission, George Bosko may escape the hangman's noose, but will spend the rest of his natural life in the state insane asylum. Wray Rattler - June 26, 1919 - Morgan County Herald – George Bosko was sentenced to be hanged during the week beginning September 22 and Tom Bosko was sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Trimble in the district court at Pueblo for the murder of Elton C. Parks and Will T. Hunter on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11. Sentence was pronounced immediately following the arguments of defendants' attorneys, T. A. Stewart and Robert Morris for a new trial. Judge Trimble also overruled the attorney's plea for dismissal on the ground of former jeopardy. It is likely that appeal to the Supreme Court will be made. The attorneys have sixty days in which to file their bills for exceptions. Weekly Ignacio Chieftain - June 27, 1919 - George Bosko, convicted of killing Elton C. Parks and Will T. Hunter on the Rye road near Pueblo on the afternoon of April 11, was sentenced to be hanged during the week beginning Sept. 22. Tom Bosko, a brother of the doomed man, was given life imprisonment. It is likely that appeal to the Supreme Court will be made. The attorneys have sixty days in which to file their bill of exceptions. Fort Collins Courier - December 11, 1920 - Confessed Murderer is Hung at State Penitentiary Friday Night at 9:08 O'Clock; Death Penalty is Paid For Murder of "Good Samaritan" Autoists on Pueblo Highway - Pueblo, Dec. 10 - George T. Bosko, confessed murderer of E. C. Parks and Will Hunter of Pueblo, was executed in the state penitentiary at 9:08 tonight according to advices received here from Canon City. Prison officials refused to give out any of the details of the execution only that the prison chaplain was present. It is reported by friends of Bosko's mother that she has suffered a collapse and is not expected to live through the night. The following is the history of the crime for which he paid the death penalty tonight: George T. Bosko, 25 years old, and his brother, Thomas Bosko, 18, left Pueblo on April 10, 1919, without funds and looking for employment on ranches in that vicinity. On April 11, near Rye, Colo., while walking along the road, they encountered an automobile driven by Elton C. Parks, in which William T. Hunter was a passenger. Parks permitted the two pedestrians to ride in the car. The two men occupied the rear seat. Eighteen miles from Pueblo, according to his own confession, George Bosko drew a revolver and shot and killed Parks and Hunter. The brothers escaped to Utah, where they were arrested on May 16 at Kenilworth, after a chase of three days in the hills. George Bosko, soon after his arrest, confessed to the double murder, declaring he committed the crime to secure funds. The younger Bosko also confessed to his part in the killing. On June 19, 1919, a jury in Pueblo sentenced George Bosko to hang and Thomas Bosko to life imprisonment. Several reprieves were granted by the lieutenant governor, the last reprieve expiring on December 2, when acting Governor George Stephen announced he would grant no further extension of time. Colorado Public Defender - December 10, 1920 - George R. Bosko (a.k.a. Bosco), Pueblo. W-W. Hanging/Broken neck. Bosko was executed for the murders of William T. Hunter and Elton C. Parks. Bosko's brother and accomplice, Tom, was under eighteen years of age at the time of the crimes, and because of his young age, he received a sentence of life imprisonment, rather than death, for his role in the crimes. Parks, a car salesman, was demonstrating a new car to Hunter, a ranch owner, when they picked up the two brothers. The brothers then shot the victims and stole the car. Bosko, age twenty-eight, worked as a ranch hand, had no prior arrests, and had served in the Army for three years. Upon his arrest, he gave a full confession, and at his arraignment he pleaded guilty. The convictions were affirmed on appeal. The Lieutenant Governor delayed the execution for five months so physicians could evaluate Bosko's sanity. At the time of the execution, Bosko's mother “is said to have suffered a collapse . . . and was not expected to live thru [sic] the night.” Fort Collins Courier – December 11, 1920 – Confessed Murderer Is Hung At State Penitentiary Friday Night at 9:08 O'Clock; Death Penalty Is Paid For Murder of “Good Samaritan” Autoists On Pueblo Highway – By Associated Press – Pueblo, Dec. 10. – George T.
