In 1955, there was a Denver man who had grievances with his mother. It would appear that she had put him in an orphanage as a child; that's probably where the anger began.

The man's mom was a successful businesswoman in the Denver area who owned a restaurant. The son, John Gilbert Graham set explosives in the restaurant, and collect insurance. It would appear that Graham wasn't done using explosives to collect on insurance.

Graham gave a wrapped present to his mother before she left for her flight. That present would be a bomb that went off while the plane was over Longmont, later that day, on November 1, 1955.

Everyone on that plane (44 in total) perished with the explosion and ensuing crashing to the ground. An FBI investigation led to Graham's arrest. Call it irony, but Graham's mother never signed any of the insurance policies that Graham wanted to collect on.
