According to additional information provided on 12/2011 by Richard Carrico, a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: Juan Leo Cuero was a Mission Indian Agency policeman who was strongly disliked by members of the Mission Indian Federation and he and Jim Banegas (also an MIA officer) were involved in the infamous Campo Fiesta gunfight in which Francisco Cuero and Marcus Hilmiup were shot to death on July 16, 1927. See Tanis Thorne Journal of California and Great Basin Anthropology 21, no. 2, 1999 for an excellent discussion of this event.
