Colorado History: Alferd Packer — cannibal buried in Littleton

3 days 11 hours ago
In November 1873, a party of miners arrived at the Ute Indian encampment near present-day Delta. Ouray, chief of the Utes, advised the party not to continue into the mountains until spring because of severe weather and deep snow. Alferd Packer, however, was in a hurry to continue the journey and to be among the first to stake his claim.
