Fatal Mountain Lion Attack in Idaho Springs - Scott Lancaster

Scott Lancaster. In 1991, at age 18, he gained notoriety for being the first person killed by a mountain lion in Colorado in recorded history.

"Scott Lancaster, 18, was killed while jogging just a few hundred yards from his high school in Idaho Springs, Colorado. The lion dragged the 130 pound boy 200 yards uphill before killing him, evidenced by the uprooted vegetation along the way. The lion was found feeding on his body three days later. This is the first death ever in Colorado from a lion attack."

Bio

Rob began his career in photography when he started traveling around the world as a computer consultant.Flying Monday - Thursday, he'd shoot after work just to get out of the hotels. And then, between projects, when he wasn't working, he'd take off on crazy solo motorcycle adventures across the country. He became more serious about photography as he rode his motorcycle solo around the globe. On his motorcycle adventures, he's been to 47 out of 50 states, and ridden his motorcycle alone through every country in Central America twice, and broken countless cameras. Shooting wildlife and landscapes along the way, he's ridden solo from Alaska to Peru, from the Arctic Ocean to the Amazon basin.

Another Camden Mayor Leaves Office for Prison

When I was working in Philadelphia, the mayor of Camden left office and went straight to prison. He was the third Camden mayor out of the last 5 to make that transition.

Camden Mayors:


  • Milton Milan (1997-2000). Milton Milan was the third mayor of Camden to be indicted for corruption within the past 20 years.

  • Arnold Webster (1993-1997). Arnold Webster was the second mayor of Camden to be indicted for corruption. He "pleaded guilty to federal wire fraud charges in 1998".

  • Aaron Thompson (1990-1993)

  • Melvin R. Primas, Jr. (1981-1990)

  • Angelo Errichetti (1973-1981). Angelo Errichetti was the first mayor of Camden to be indicted for corruption. He was indicted following Abscam.

Milan’s predecessor, Arnold Webster, pleaded guilty to illegally paying himself $20,000 in school district funds after he became mayor.

Angelo Errichetti, mayor from 1973 to 1981, served more than 21/2 years in prison for taking a $50,000 bribe from an undercover FBI agent in the Abscam case.
