Murder and the Shanghai Prize Fighter: Robert S. “Batt” Battalino

Robert S. “Batt” Battalino was a prize fighter who was good enough to star on the TV sports show The Greatest Fights of the Century, and was evil enough to commit murder in the foothills west of Golden. You will hear the story of Batt’s life, his crime, and the unusual bond he formed with the County Sheriff as he faced death in the gas chamber.

Battalino was the first person executed for committing a crime in Jefferson County, Colorado.

This multimedia program will be led by the popular Dennis Potter, retired Captain with Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. See and learn about genuine artifacts from the City of Golden collection such as the actual handcuffs used to restrain Battalino during transport.
