Pacheco, Anna
Anna Pacheco – World Independent – July 8, 1937 – Mother-Daughter Quarrel Ends With Girl Committing Suicide – Enraged because her mother severely scolded her, 16-year-old Anna Pacheco of Gardner Wednesday used a .32-40 rifle to send a bullet through her heart and end her life. The suicide was the climax to a mother-daughter quarrel which is believed to have started after the girl was unable to account for her whereabouts Tuesday night. The heated argument started while Mrs. Eusebia Pacheco and her three daughters Anna, Domencenda and Dora were working in the garden near the house. Anna left her work and ran to her room in the upstairs of the Pacheco home. Her mother followed her and found her cocking the huge rifle. Mrs. Pacheco grappled with her daughter in an effort to get the gun. During the scuffle the trigger was touched and a bullet was sent through the floor. Mrs. Pacheco then got the gun and Anna promised not to attempt such a thing again and the gun was placed behind the bed. Mrs. Pacheco left the house and returned to the garden but was startled by a shot. Immediately she returned to the girl's bedroom to find her daughter stretched across the bed, the gun on her chest. “Don't touch me mother,” Anna whispered. “It's no use – it's all over now.” A doctor was called but the bullet had torn through the girl's heart. County Coroner H. J. Furphy called Sheriff Carl Swift to investigate the situation and the officers in their reconstruction of the shooting said the girl evidently sat on the bed, propped the butt of the gun on the bedstead and touched the trigger with a wire coat hanger which was found on the bed with her. Ann is survived by her mother, the two sisters at home and two other sisters, Mrs. Pete Padilla of Gardner and Lucy Pacheco of Arpan, S. D. Funeral services will be in the care of Furphy Brothers and will be held at the family home Friday. World Independent – July 9, 1937 – Suicide Victim's Funeral Set Back Until Saturday – Pending the arrival of relatives, funeral services for Anna Pacheco, 16, have been postponed until Saturday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock. The services will be held at the family home in Gardner in the care of Furphy Brothers' Mortuary. Miss Pacheco shot herself through the heart Wednesday following a quarrel with her mother.

Pacheco, Juan
Juan Pacheco – Walsenburg World – January 20, 1922 – Pioneer Murdered at His Ranch Home on Tuesday – Juan Pacheco Found With Bullet Hole in his Head by His Grandson – Wife Also at Death's Door – 'Assassin Unknown,' Finding of the Coroner's Jury at Inquest Held Yesterday Afternoon – Word was brought in Tuesday afternoon that Juan Pacheco, a wealthy ranchman, and his wife had been discovered lying on the floor of their ranch house above the Niggerhead mine. Mr. Pacheco was dead and his wife just able to murmur a few words. Since that time she has been unconscious or delirious. Juan Pacheco had been shot just back and above the right ear, the bullet going thru a cap which was on his head. Death must have been almost instantaneous. Mrs. Pacheco was shot from behind the left ear. Juan Pacheco had been in Walsenburg Saturday making a will and attending to other business, and the story rapidly spread that he had shot his wife and committed suicide. The reason for believing this was stated to be that Mr. and Mrs. Pacheco had had trouble over Mrs. Pacheco's children. Pacheco has no children of his own, but Mrs. Pacheco is his second wife and has two daughters and a son, Amarante Calbes, who was arrested last week for grand larceny. It was advanced that Pacheco did not care to have his wife's children inherit his money and decided to kill his wife and then himself. It was stated that his nephew had been at the house and stayed there Monday night leaving Tuesday morning; that the nephew had a gun with him which Mr. Pacheco asked him to leave at the house when he left. This gun was found afterwards lying between Pacheco's legs on the floor. So much for the murder and suicide theory. Others are of the opinion that Pacheco and his wife were shot by outside parties. Pacheco was suppose to have in his possession $2,500 which he received Saturday on some land deal. As a matter of fact Pacheco left his money in Walsenburg and did not have it at the ranch. Little Pedro Domingues, a grandson of the deceased, and living with them, left Tuesday morning to visit at a neighbor's house. He returned home about 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon and looking into the house saw his grandparents lying on the floor in pools of blood. He immediately went to a neighbor to notify them. Frailan Vigil, who lives at Niggerhead, near the Pacheco place, saw two men going along the railroad track about 2 p.m. that afternoon. Another witness at the inquest testified to seeing two men crossing the fields near the Pacheco place. Rosa Pacheco, wife of Zacarias Pacheco, and daughter of Mrs. Juan Pacheco went to the house and saw the bodies of her step-father and mother lying on the floor. She spoke to her mother who murmured something about the enemy had been there and that Don Abilia and a dark one did it. Mrs. Pacheco has been unconscious or delirious ever since. She is not likely to recover. Zacharias Pacheco was in Walsenburg that day and left in company with Amarante Cables and reached home about 5 o'clock. They did not know anything about the tragedy until they reached home. Dr. Paul G. Mathews, the coroner, reached the scene of the tragedy about 5 o'clock. He examined the body but found no gun in evidence. He returned to town and the undertaker Gabe Furphy, went out to get the body. The first thing he saw as he looked at the body was the gun lying between the dead man's legs between the knees and hips, the barrel pointing upwards. Francisco Pacheco, a brother of the deceased, testified that he saw the gun and picked it up and handed it to the undertaker. The gun had one empty chamber, two exploded shells and three loads. The nephew who left the gun there that morning testified that he had shot one of these shells some days before. This would show that only one shell had been exploded at the time or after the time of the tragedy, and that the gun had been placed on the corpse after the coroner had left the place. Zacarias Pacheco and Amarante Calbes did not leave Walsenburg until after the coroner had left and reached there while the coroner was there. It also developed at the inquest that Mr. Juan Pacheco had been suffering for over a year with a sort of paralysis of his arms so that it was impossible for him to raise his arm higher than his chest, indicating the fact that it was improbable that he could have shot himself from behind the right ear. There is a mystery with this shooting which may never be cleared up. The incoherent talk of the wounded woman is to the effect that two men were there and did it, but who they are she is not able to say, and her talk may be simply the wandering of delirium. The coroner's jury brought in a verdict that Juan Pacheco came to his death from a gun shot wound at (article cut off)
