Giuseppa Dorinda Labate Cellante was born on 19 Mar 1864 in San Pietro Avellana, Campobasso, Italy. Her parents were Carmine Antonio "Carmelo" L'Abbate, and Gemma diCianno. Dorinda was murdered. Her body was found Sunday 27 Nov 1910 in Adams County 2-3 miles north of Denver Colorado. In connection with her; another women Mrs. Marie Laguardia remains were found in Golden, Colorado and detirmined to have been killed in August of 1910. Mrs. Angelina Garramone known as "Cassie Chadwick of Little Italy" was found guilty of Laguardia's murder, (to rob her), and served 11 years in prison of a life sentence until her release in 1922. She never admitted guilt. Mrs Garramone was a prior convicted fellon as she had been convicted, sentenced and released for forgery from prison in Canyon City Colorado. Mrs Garramone was the former partner (what kind of business?)of Mrs Cellante and so the question is, "did she kill Mrs Cellante as well?" Mrs Cellante was last seen alive with Mrs Garramone according to her husband who left the two together. This was a few days prior to her discovery on 27 November 1910. So she would have been killed around 25-26 November? Mrs Cellente was known to have knowledge of Mrs Laguardia's death shortly before her disappearance and murder.
