Meyers, Frank
Frank Meyers – Leadville Carbonate Chronicle – March 2, 1914 – Heroin and Whiskey Killed Frank Meyers – Frank Meyers, a cripple who has been in the city for several weeks, dropped dead in State street shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday morning, supposedly as the result of an overdose of a drug. Meyers fells to the sidewalk a few seconds before Jack Riley passed along the street. Riley picked him up and assisted him to a doorway of Jackson's rooming house where Meyers sat down while Riley telephoned for a doctor. Before the doctor and the police arrived, Meyers had died. Policeman Bergman telephoned to Coroner O'Malia, Deputy Walsh taking charge of the body a few minutes later. Meyers, who was a man between 40 and 50 years of age, had been in the city for several weeks, appearing in police court once in that time on a charge of vagrancy of which he was found guilty. At that time he gave his name as Frank Meyers. His right leg at some time had been amputated below the knee, and he walked by means of an artificial leg and a cane. No means of identification were found on his person. A bottle of “white line,” a razor and a shaving brush were the only objects in his pockets. Police and sheriff's men found yesterday that Meyers had secured a large dose of heroin, a drug, during the night, and said that they learned he had taken it, drinking whiskey afterwards. The after affect is thought to have caused his death. Meyers is thought to have come here from Pueblo, where his mother is supposed to live.
