LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- A gay student at the University of Wyoming was
savagely beaten, burned and left to die tied to a wooden fence. Four
suspects were arrested.

A passer-by found Matthew Shepard, a 22-year-old political science major,
bloody and unconscious Wednesday evening a mile northeast of Laramie. His
skull had been smashed with a blunt object.
