Birth: Nov. 16, 1961
Death: Sep. 25, 1973

On Sept. 24, 1973, 11-year-old Amy Burridge and her 18-year- old sister, Becky Thomson, were thrown from the Fremont Canyon Bridge near Casper. Becky was raped before being thrown from the bridge. Amy died; Becky survived. Two local men, Ron Kennedy and Jerry Jenkins, were swiftly arrested.

The men were both known as troublemakers, and Becky picked them out of a lineup. Jenkins caved almost immediately, claiming that Kennedy made him do it. Kennedy said that the whole thing was a mistake, and if investigators would just let him out of jail, he'd help them find the scum who threw the girls off the bridge. The men were brought to trial and sentenced to death, the first such sentence passed in Wyoming in nine years.
