Lola Lopez wears a large gold locket in her Nebraska State Prison mug shot. In a moment of "blind greed," her companion Cicerio Estrada clubbed, strangled, and robbed Stephen Pann in the Null Rooming House in Sidney, Nebraska, on January 9, 1922. Estrada and Lopez fled hours before the murder was discovered. They were captured in Greeley, Colorado, and were returned to Sidney to stand trial. Through an interpreter, the Mexican-born Lopez pleaded not guilty, but did admit to having knowledge of the murder. She served 2 years, 2 months, and 22 days.
