Turns out that the evidence is piling up that Matthew Shepards death was completely unrelated to his sexual preferences. He was a known drug dealer and meth head who dealt to meth heads.Turns out that Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson were simply strung out speedfreak customers of Shephard looking for money and drugs.
Anyone who know anything about crystal meth (I lived on it for almost 3 weeks during a summer back in H.S., over 20 years ago) knows that it is BAD stuff and causes depression, rage, and violent behavior.
Speed kills. It was true then. True now.
