Everybody thought that Slade was dead and several angry townsfolk chased Beni out of Julesburg, but when they returned they found Slade struggling to his feet, somehow he miraculously recovered.
Beni continued to steal horses from the Pike's peak Express Company and Slade vowed to hunt him down, but Beni decided to ambush Slade at Slade's own ranch at Cold Springs. But Slade found out about the ambush and along with some of his cowboys captured Beni. Slade was so mad at Beni that he didn't even bother taking him in but shot him dead while he was tied to a fence post. [Colorado Heritage/ Autumn 2000 page 48]
