Mr. Brady said Ms. Fero was known for cooking up beef dishes for customers at a moment’s notice and usually would close the bar herself.

She bid him goodnight Tuesday as he paid his tab.

“She said: “Thank you, sweetie. Have a good night,’” Mr. Brady said. “I said, ‘You, too.’”

Mike Spinale, one of Ms. Fero’s neighbors in Aurora, described her as “really nice.”

“She didn’t speak much, but I know she owned a bar and she worked all the time,” Mr. Spinale said. “She told me she did everything herself.”

Danny Fero, who said he was Young Fero’s ex-husband, said he talked with Ms. Fero about a month ago regarding a visit with their daughter, but she made no mention of any threats. He said he was shocked by the events at the bar he once co-owned with her.

He told The Denver Post the two had met when he was working as a spokesman and photographer for the U.S. Army in Seoul and she was a clerk at the Korean Ministry of Agriculture. The two later married and had a daughter.

Jerry Richardson, who maintained an ATM at the bar, described Ms. Fero as “feisty.”

“When she wanted that machine fixed, she would tell you about it,” Mr. Richardson said.

Few details were immediately known about the other victims.

At an address listed for Ms. Pohl, a man who answered the door declined to comment. But neighbors Bert and Suzanne Kasben expressed disbelief that the studious 22-year-old was killed.

“She was always working,” Mr. Kasben said, adding he knew she held several waitressing jobs.

The Kasbens said Ms. Pohl was one of three sisters in a tight-knit family who often were seen walking their dog in a quiet cul-de-sac.

Meanwhile, Ms. Beesley was listed in state records as the owner of Maxim Lounge, another Denver bar.

Frank Peluso, who works in an office building a half-block from Fero's Bar & Grill, said he used to eat lunch at the establishment but hasn’t been there in three years. It seemed to be declining and the owners had tried various things to attract more business, including offering karaoke, he said.
