Wyoming Native Shot by Washington Sniper?

Laramie, Wy – The sniper that terrorized Washington D-C also may have killed a Wyoming man. Police in Tucson, Arizona, say
Lee Boyd Malvo has confessed to killing Jerry Taylor. Taylor grew up in Thermopolis and graduated from Hot Springs County High School in 1960. He was 60 years old when he was fatally shot in 2002 on a Tucson golf course.
Cheryll Witz says she's always wondered whether Malvo and fellow sniper John Allen Muhammad were responsible for her father's death. So she wrote Malvo to ask him.
After granting Malvo immunity from prosecution and interviewing him on Thursday, Tucson Police Captain Bill Richards said Malvo confessed.
Malvo and Muhammad were convicted of separate killings in the Washington D-C area in 2003. Malvo is serving a life term in Virginia. Muhammad is on death row.
