From The Santa Fe New Mexican:

April 1, 1914: The murder of Mrs. Adolfo Padilla on College Street in the First Ward Saturday afternoon for which crime Adolfo Padilla was murdered by a mob last night recalls an appalling list of homicides in that part of the city in the past 12 or 15 years. Fifteen years ago, Clemente Gutierrez was stoned to death at the acequia this side of the F.C. Wilson residence. Ignacio Garcia killed his wife on College Street near the J.D. Sena residence, by stabbing her. C. Berardinelli served a term of years in the penitentiary for cutting his wife’s throat. Juan Garcia killed his brother on College Street with a pistol, the two being drunk at the time. Marcelino Vigil was stripped, stabbed and beaten to death with stones in an arroyo near College Street. At least one child of Francisco Urioste died under suspicious circumstances and a number of others alleged to have been murdered by him.
