Description

The Story of Reuben Benton Hayward’s Murder—Part 2

Reuben Benton Hayward was dead. Two men, accused of his death, awaited their fate at the Jefferson County Jail. A few minutes before midnight, a party of horsemen numbering close to 35 approached the jail from the south. These horsemen were closely followed by an equal number of people riding in wagons or on foot.

One rider climbed a telegraph pole and cut the wires. Any communications to and from Golden was now muted. All of them were either masked or had their faces blackened. They had tools with them and together worked to open the heavy metal front door to the County Jail.

They were determined to hang the two men lodged inside who two weeks earlier had murdered their neighbor and friend, Reuben Benton Hayward.

Dennis Potter, retired Captain of the Jefferson County Colorado Sheriff’s Department, criminal justice professor, and previous presenter of the popular “Operation Hideout: The Investigation into the Kidnapping and Murder of Adolph Coors III” returns for this exciting program.
