RT Video/DVD DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 219443195 LA English T1 The Matthew Shepard story secrets of a murder A1 Vargas, Elizabeth., Jimenez, Stephen., Silber, Glenn., ABC News., PB ABC News Productions PP [New York, NY?] YR 2007 AB Six years ago, on a cold October night on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyo., 21-year-old gay college student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left for dead. He was found 18 hours later and rushed to the hospital, where he lingered on the edge of death for nearly five days before succumbing to his injuries. The story garnered national attention when the attack was characterized as a hate crime. But Shepard's killers, in their first interview since their convictions, claim that money and drugs motivated their actions that night, not hatred of gays.
