Creep It Real

It was a cold October night, when cyclist Aaron Kreifels came upon something horrifying on the side of the desolate road as he made  his way home just after dusk. Slumped over and tied to a fence post was bloody & brutally beaten Matthew Shepard clinging to life.  

It would later be determined that Matthew had been slumped at the fence for over 18 hours since he had been beaten and tied to the fence by two young locals, Russell Henderson & Aaron Mckinney. He suffered traumatic injuries to his head that put him in a coma, from which he would never recover. 

The media was quick to determine this was one of the worst hate crimes in history due to Matthew being a young gay man...but was there actually more to the story than we were presented at the time? Join us as we delve into the tragic story of Matthew Shepard.
