Photos: Most wanted DEA fugitives in Denver, part two

Additional photos and more below.
Last week, we shared part one of the federal Drug Enforcement Administration's most wanted fugitives list for its Denver office -- a roster from Colorado and several neighboring states that includes 51 men and women wanted for narco-crimes typically involving heroin, meth, cocaine and marijuana. As you'll notice, the vast majority of them are from Mexico -- although there's at least one Slovenian.

Continue to see the 26 additional fugitives on the roster, featuring photos, descriptions and details about their alleged crimes.

Interim sheriff Elias Diggins's criminal record adds to 5 incidents spelling Gary Wilson's doom

Interim Denver sheriff Elias Diggins. More photos plus videos and a document below.
As we've documented in a series of blog posts over the past year or so, the Denver Sheriff's Department has been beset by scandals -- so many that yesterday, Mayor Michael Hancock accepted Sheriff Gary Wilson's resignation and appointed Division Chief Elias Diggins to fill the job on an interim basis.

But this attempt to smooth the waters wasn't wholly successful: Last night, news broke that Diggins has a criminal record. Continue for details about that revelation, following a recap of five incidents that helped seal Wilson's fate.

Marijuana membership clubs supported by two-thirds of respondents in new poll
A photo from the Facebook page of Maryjane's Social Club. More images and a document below.
Earlier this month, we told you about what customers at Maryjane's 420 Shop and Social Club characterized as a raid on the establishment by the Denver Police Department. The DPD doesn't refer to the action this way, but whatever's the most accurate definition, Maryjane's remains closed weeks after the fact.

Such a policy may be tougher to justify in the face of public support for members-only pot clubs -- and in a new poll, a large majority of respondents backed the concept.

Update below: A short time ago, a half-dozen Denver police cruisers were crowded into the emergency-center parking lot of Denver Health -- a sure sign that something very bad had just happened. And sure enough, a gruesome crash had taken place near the intersection of Colfax and Speer just prior to 3 a.m., seriously injuring four to five people and closing a major intersection during the lead-up to the week's first rush hour -- although (update at 6:24 a.m.) it's just been reopened. Here's what we know thus far.

Update: Nancy Styler affidavit suggests William Styler needed help killing Nancy Pfister

A Facebook photo of William and Nancy Styler. Additional images, videos and documents below.
Update: In our most recent coverage of the investigation into Aspen socialite Nancy Pfister's murder (see it below), we noted that the conviction of frail-looking 66-year-old William Styler as the sole person responsible for the killing -- and prosecutors' decision to drop charges against Styler's wife Nancy and a friend, Kathy Carpenter -- had raised questions in part because "the physical actions William described seem to be beyond his capabilities." Now, with the release of Nancy's arrests affidavits, we know law enforcers felt the same way. Continue for more details and the complete document.
