!Murder Victim! Christin Lamb was 8 years old in July of 1998. She had just moved to Laramie, Wyoming, but was visiting her maternal grandparents in Powell, Wyoming, to attend the county fair. She was murdered by her friend's father who had lured her into his home just across the road from her grandparent's house. Christin was a beautiful little redheaded girl. She was described as very friendly, smart, kind and caring, someone who gave away hugs freely.
Her mother said the one thing that always stood out in Christin was her "unshakable faith" in God. Christin had prayed to receive Jesus when she was only 4 years old. Soon she was witnessing to everyone who would listen. Her stepfather Eric Lampman said that she "was not afraid to talk to people about God and if they did not listen she would work to make them listen just that much harder."
Christin's grandfather said that Christin was always at the top of her class. Her teacher would give tickets out for good work done in class. The children could then use them to get little gifts. The teacher noticed that Christin was not on line to get her rewards. Christin told her that she wasn't going to get any gifts. Her reason: she had given all her tickets away to those children who didn't get any, because she wanted to share. Christin's mother related that a neighbor told of how, the night before Christin vanished, his granddaughter had asked him to pray with her to become a christian because of the example of Christin's faith. Christin was also very active in Girl Scouts, 4-H and AWANAS.
