DENVER — Rosa sat, trembling slightly, in a fourth-floor courtroom in downtown Denver. She wore a black sweatshirt printed with the word AMERICA. She was waiting for a translator for her mother.

HELICOPTER CRASH-BACK HOME
SILVERTHORNE, Colo. — Dave and Amanda Repsher are still unpacking some of their belongings from the cardboard boxes neatly stacked along the walls of their newly remodeled Silverthorne home.

The stately residence was patterned after an English manor house, developed and built in the early 20th century by Colorado industrialist and Redstone founder John Cleveland Osgood for his family residence. By Kyle Mills, Glenwood Springs Post Independent.
