From The Santa Fe New Mexican:

March 31, 1914: Five masked men entered the city jail at the point of pistols shortly after 1 o’clock this morning and removed Adolfo Padilla, took him out in the street and, with the aid of 15 or 20 other men, slashed his throat and hands in almost the identical manner in which Padilla is alleged to have taken the life of his beautiful 18-year-old wife, Refugia Blea de Padilla, at her mother’s home on College Street. None of the mob has been identified or captured. Padilla died 10 hours later.
