Monsters Among Us: Nathan Dunlap “Chuck E Cheese Killer” killed 4 people for revenge after getting fire; Sentenced to death

Dunlap victimsFrom Dunlap appeal: In February 1996, Mr. Dunlap was convicted of four counts of capital murder and various other crimes in connection with the murder of three teenagers and a 50-year-old mother of two at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in Aurora, Colorado. In May 1996, in accordance with jury verdicts, he was sentenced to death on the four murder counts and consecutive terms totaling 113 years on the
other counts.

In July 1993, Mr. Dunlap had been fired from his position as a cook at the restaurant and wanted to “get even.” On the night of December 14, 1993, he hid in the bathroom until closing, then emerged and shot employees Sylvia Crowell, Colleen O’Connor, Bobby Stephens, Marge Kohlberg, and Ben Grant. Mr. Stephens was hit in the face at close range but survived. Mr. Dunlap’s sentence was upheld by the Colorado Supreme Court on direct review.
