Brother of Billy, murdered by Westley Allan Dodd

Dodd was sentenced to death in 1990 for molesting and then stabbing to death Cole Neer and his brother William near a Vancouver, Washington park in 1989

An estimated 200 people attended funeral services for the boys Saturday morning at Calvary Lutheran Church in Oberon, N.D., a town of about 200 near the Fort Totten Indian Reservation, where the boys were born. Their caskets were covered with star quilts, an Indian funeral tradition. Their mother is a member of the Devils Lake Sioux tribe.
