Upcoming Events

01 May

Thursday, May 1, 6:30 p.m., the Colorado Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Journalism and Women Symposium will co-sponsor a program about elections and campaign finances. This event is free and open to the public. No reservation necessary; just show up.

Colorado again will play a prominent national role in the November elections and where there's interest, there's money - a lot of it - with much of it pouring in from outside the state.

Join Nancy Watzman of the Sunlight Foundation, who will show you tools to follow the federal money that flows into the state, and Sandra Fish, an independent journalist, who will offer tips on tracking money at the state level.

08 May

Thursday, May 8, 7 p.m. dinner, 8 p.m. program, the Rocky Mountain Mystery Writers of America present speaker David Keil, a veteran detective (and fan of crime fiction). Cost is $20 for members; $25 for non-members. RSVPs are necessary to Donnell Bell or call 719 540-8632. The reservation deadline is Monday, May 5, 2014.

Keil will discuss his investigation methods and strategies, and how those can best be utilized in fictional crime solving. He will also share stories about some of his most fascinating cases and colorful characters.

He has been a private investigator for almost 30 years, always in high demand. But unless you are a criminal court insider, you won't hear his name.

Based in Colorado, he has investigated thousands of cases nationwide. Working closely with top trial lawyers, his cases include crimes such as bank robbery, international drug trafficking and sexual exploitation rings, More recently, he has helped crack some of the world's largest Ponzi schemes.

Keil specializes in what we now call white-collar criminals, but are more traditionally known as con artists. He takes on cases for victims of financial schemes, (assisting in the recovery of hundreds of millions of dollars), along with criminal defendants charged with perpetrating them. He has unique insight into the inner workings of modern financial frauds and into the minds of the perpetrators.

Several of his cases have been the basis for fictionalized films.
