About this Case:

On May 28, 1980, a patrol officer responded to an emergency call in the 200 block east of Fountain. Upon arriving, he found 83 year old Artie Borden severely beaten and in a semi-conscious state. Mr. Borden was unable to identify his attacker to the officer. He was transported to St Francis Hospital where he died from his injuries on June 10, 1980. Mr. Borden ran a rooming house for the poor. He would provide a meal and a temporary place to stay for those dispossessed and downtrodden. The tenant who called the police said he overheard what sounded like an argument between Mr. Borden and another unknown individual. When he went to investigate, he discovered Mr. Borden beaten and lying on his kitchen floor. Anyone with information regarding this case, is asked to please contact the Colorado Springs Police Department.
