The state of Colorado has seen its share of boom and bust periods. Even though living in the state is great, there is some skeleton in the closets that many people have not heard of. There are tales of tragedy and death that still haunts the state of Colorado today.

 

Don and Kellie Rainwater have collected these macabre stories together in one volume in their new book, “The Dark Side of Colorado: Murder, Mayhem, and Massacre” This new book features stories that some Colorado historians want to forget.

 

There is a chapter on Ted Bundy’s bloody visit to the state detailing his murders and sexual crimes. Though convicted and executed, Ted Bundy left a terrible scar on the psyche of Coloradoans.

 

Jon Benet Ramsey’s murder is detailed and though the parents were recently exonerated, the mystery is still alive for the residents of Boulder.

 

Older tragedies like the Sand Creek Massacre, the Ludlow Massacre, and the sad story of Baby Doe Tabor is explained.

 

The book even has recent stories chronicled like the Columbine Massacre and the Michael Murray shooting spree.

 

Though each story needs an entire book written about them, the detail in this book is enough to satisfy the curious and fill in the missing knowledge that the newspapers and tabloids do not give.

 

The book is available at amazon.com or at http://www.coloradokillers.com. So if you are interested in the dark side of Colorado history, this is a must read.
