Matt Shepard friends, officers share experiences

By  | 

Laramie, WY (AP) - The annual Shepard Symposium on Social Justice at the University of Wyoming featured a film by a friend of Matthew Shepard.

The documentary "Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine" had its debut at the symposium held this past week in Laramie.

Shepard was brutally killed in 1998 and two men were convicted of murder and are now serving life sentences.

A panel discussion after the film included the film maker and Laramie police officers who were involved in investigating Shepard's murder.

The Laramie Boomerang reports that much of the conversation centered on how each of the panel members changed after Shepard's death.
