Bruce Larson murder 3/28/1990 Salt Lake City, UT *Eugene Nate Woodland “Captain Nemo” convicted of his murder; sentenced to 5 years to life in prison*

Eugene Nate Woodland “Captain Nemo” has been denied parole and will not get another parole hearing until March 2018. At that time he would be about 89 years old. I think he is in bad health, so I doubt he will still be alive. Update: Eugene Woodland died on 1/8/2015.

From Woodland’s appeal:

Around 1986, defendant entered into a contract with the firm of Peacock and Larsen for construction of the Woodland Dinner Theater Garden Complex in Salt Lake City. After a significant period of work, Woodland fell behind in his payments to Peacock and Larsen and was eventually forced into bankruptcy.   During the bankruptcy proceedings, Peacock and Larsen filed a lien on Woodland’s property to protect its interests.   Following Woodland’s bankruptcy, Peacock and Larsen bid on and eventually purchased Woodland’s property.   In September 1989, Woodland contacted Harry Peacock by telephone to discuss the status of his former property.   During their conversation, Woodland expressed his frustration over the fact that Peacock and Bruce Larsen had purchased the property.   Woodland indicated that if Peacock and Larsen refused to settle with him, he would “settle it with other means.”   Woodland then demanded to speak with Bruce Larsen;  Peacock referred him instead to their lawyer.

On March 28, 1990, Woodland entered his former dinner theater and shot and killed Bruce Larsen.   After the shooting, two workers who had witnessed the event followed Woodland to a nearby apartment complex.   They tackled Woodland in an attempt to detain him until police could arrive, and in the struggle, Woodland shot one of them in the hand.
