The man convicted of killing KOA-A/DENVER talk show host ALAN BERG in 1984 has died in prison. BRUCE PIERCE, a neo-Nazi convicted in 1987, died MONDAY of natural causes in ALLENWOOD federal prison in PENNSYLVANIA at 56.
PIERCE, a member of a white-supremacist group called The Order, received 150 years for his role as the shooter in BERG's killing, in addition to a previous unrelated sentence, but was not technically charged with murder; the charges included violating BERG's civil rights. BERG was gunned down with 13 shots in his driveway on JUNE 18th, 1984.
