Has anyone seen or read anything in the paper about the man that was found in his home who had been beaten & stabbed. Was transported to colo springs flight for life. Lama4r police told family had to be self inflicted even though neither weapon was found. NO INVESTIGATION going on this one. I believe his name is abitia

I live behind him! I found his mail in my yard the mornin after that happened. So i went to take it to him, an as i was waikin up to his house there was blood all over the sidewalk leadin up the stairs into his house,so i knocked an called out his name which is John Abitia, there was no answer so i entered an called his name again, I looked around he was no where. So i came home called the Hospital they said they didn't have him, So I called the police department to report the blood an they put me on hold, When someone did come back on the line it was Detective Rodriguze, he said he knew about it an that John was taken to a hospital out of town he didn't remember which one! He also stated that John had fallen an hurt himself badly an was due to ham being drunk! I saw Johns son Bert not to long ago an he said John was fighten for his life, an not doin to good. My opion is that i feel someone beat him pretty bad! Cause i know John, an he has been plenty drunk before an he has fallen alot an got hurt, but the injuries he has know are not from a fall! I don't understand why it wasn't in the paper, an why nothin is being done or said! Is it because he is a drunk an has had the police an ambulance called so many times that they don't wanna waist there time on him? He is a Humane an deserves the same treatment an respect that everyone else gets! Something needs to be done an said on this mans behalf!

Thanks for info & sure makes me wonder why there has not been something in paper. Nothing in police reports either. Must be some reason it was not & if someone did do something quess that means they are free to do it again

Have you gone to the police department and said something on his behalf? Seems if you are so convinced there is some type of government cover up you would do something other then sit around and blog about it.

"Cause i know John, an he has been plenty drunk before an he has fallen alot an got hurt, but the injuries he has know are not from a fall" So he drinks all the time and falls all the time but you assume this is different? Again, has anyone actally gone to the police department and asked about the matter? If you know something maybe you should go in and tell them. Oh wait, maybe the cops beat him up. I am suprised that hasn't been said yet.

In any case if the man is not doing so good as you said his son told you, I hope he gets better.

1:57 a.m. Officer contacted a subject in the 700 block of South 7th St as the subject was walking away from a vehicle. Subject was arrested for DUI and other charges.

How can they give a DUI to someone not driving?
