Annie Maes - World Independent - April 19, 1948 - Found Dead, Body Of Annie Maes Discovered Sunday Night By Husband - A 21-year-old Huerfano County Ranch wife was found dead in her home at Turkey Creek located about 40 miles northwest of Walsenburg, last night at 7:30 o'clock. Huerfano County Sheriff Claud Swift disclosed this morning. Mrs. Annie Maes, the wife of Adolph Maes, 27 a farmer and sheep man, was found lying in a slumped position on a trunk in the small house. The body was discovered by her husband as he returned from doing farm chores. Swift said. Around the women's neck was a heavy, coarse, olive drab-colored towel, tied in an unusually strong knot, the sheriff's department announced. Maes reports that he and his wife began chores on his farm around 6:30 o'clock last night, Swift declared, with the young women returning to the house shortly before 7 o'clock. Twenty-five minutes later, Swift said Maes entered the home to find his wife's body, with an old army issued towel strongly knotted around her throat. According to preliminary investigations, County Coroner Dan Unfug told the World-Independent that the young woman had died by reason of "suffocation by strangulation." Unfug revealed late this morning that a postmortem is scheduled sometime today to determine the cause of death. "No other bruises were found on the body in our investigation last night," Swift told this newspaper, "and there were no signs of violence." Maes told Tony Velarde, under sheriff, that his wife was "despondent." The Maes' have one child, a five-month-old son. Swift disclosed a routine investigation is being conducted.

Greenhorn Valley News – December 6, 2002 – “Hero” Dies Tragically in Auto Accident – On Thanksgiving Day, November 28, at approximately ................... learned ...... Maes ... in Rye ... by a local newspaper carrier. Maes was well known and respected among valley teens, and their parents, for demonstrating strength and endurance and supporting others after two of his own children were killed instantly in an auto accident in 1993. He was “heroic” in the eyes of many. According to a report by Sgt. Colletti of the Pueblo County Sheriff's Department, Maes apparently lost control of his vehicle near 8263 Cuerna Verde, and slid off the left side of the road, causing it to roll onto the driver's side. Maes, the only occupant, was partially ejected and pronounced dead on the scene of massive head trauma. Time of the accident is unknown and full details are still under investigation. [Obituary continued as above]. Greenhorn Valley News – December 6, 2002 – Tribute to a Friend by Tony Marostica – “Pablo Maes was one of the grand treasures of this Valley.” Pablo Maes was my friend. In the final story I submitted for Rye T-Bolts' 2002 football season a couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Pablo, although I didn't mention him by name. You might remember that I said I had a friend in the Valley, who was really more like a brother. I said that this friend was one of the most faithful of those I like to call the “T-Bolt Faithful.” For those of you who weren't living in the Valley in 1993 need to know what happened here, and how those events were connected to Pablo Maes. Those who were here need to be reminded. On November 10, 1993, four Rye High School students were killed instantly in a head-on crash with a Rye Fire Department water truck on a Highway 165 curve. You've seen the spot, loved ones maintain a simple memorial there and purple and white balloons appear each November 10. It was a normal sunny morning and the kids were driving to school. Killed in the wreck were Miah Maes, Jason Kingen, Melanie Smith, and Nicole Maes. Nicole and Melanie were seniors and co-managers of the T-Bolt Football team and Miah wore #54 for the 'Bolts. He and Nicole were Pablo's children. The Cinderella story of the 1993 Rye Thunderbolt football team is forever connected to that awful accident. Unranked and unheralded, the 7-3 'Bolts lost their last game and barely made it to the post-season. A couple of days before their first playoff gave vs. highly regarded Erie, the tragedy struck. Some felt Rye shouldn't even attempt to play. But the decision was made to hold a memorial service on Friday and to Erie on Saturday. Purple and white balloons were released into a blue Rye sky. To the utter amazement of many thousands of readers who followed front page coverage in the Rocky Mountain News and Denver Post, the 1993 Rye Thunderbolts beat Erie by 18 points, beat powerhouse West Grand 14-7 a week later, and ultimately traveled to the West Slope to play Cedaredge for the state championship. During each game, Miah's vacant helmet kept a silent vigil on the 'Bolt sidelines and Pablo Maes became the 'Bolts most vocal and visible supporter. On an unforgettable Saturday afternoon, the Rye Thunderbolts beat Cedaredge 26 to 8 and were crowned Colorado State Champions. After the final horn, the entire football team surrounded Pablo and lifted him up on their shoulders. As far as I am concerned, that demonstration of love and pride was one of the finest moments in the history of high school sports. The events of 1993 defined the final years of Pablo's life. He and his wife Virginia donated money to add improvements to the RHS football stadium. They continued to attend games and cheer on the T-Bolts while remaining involved in the lives of the 1993 team members. When my own son Jacob, who caught passes and kicked extra points for the championship team, returned from a two-year church mission, Pablo was there at the airport to welcome him back home. When another team member, my son-in-law Erik Himmelberg and my daughter Amy (who was a 1993 T-Bolt cheerleader) had their babies, Pablo and Virginia appeared bearing gifts. He was respected here and he loved all of his neighbors in return. Pablo touched the lives of many people with his jovial banter and unselfish manner. He often told me that the Greenhorn Valley and his humble home overlooking Lake Beckwith was paradise and here he felt like a king. Yet another tragic automobile accident in this valley has claimed Pablo's life. It is a bitter irony. Pablo my friend, we will miss you.

Maez, Matt
Matt Maez - Huerfano World Journal - September 24, 2009 - Walsenburg Man beaten to death - Matt Maez, 18, of Walsenburg, died on Sunday, Sept 13, more than a week after he was savagely beaten and dumped in a field in Pueblo. Pueblo police are searching for Jayson Oslund, who is suspected of murdering Maez. Oslund's whereabouts are unknown, and it is believed he is getting help from family and friends to elude capture. Maez was beaten the evening of Sept. 5, after Maez and some friends were at the same party on Pueblo's East Side as Oslund and his brother, Kelly. The Oslund brothers reportedly caught Maez stealing items out of their car, and chased him into a nearby field. Jayson caught hold of Maez, and emerged later, alone, allegedly carrying a club. The brothers returned to the party and bragged about beating Maez. Maez's friends went looking and found Maez beaten and unresponsive, and took him to Parkview hospital. Maez recently completed work on the Walsenburg River Walk project, which was an effort to help unemployed or troubled youth with summer jobs, and provide them with a sense of accomplishment.
