Unsolved Crimes

12/13/2016 - Snow Boarder Murder Case reopened
Click to Enlarge

SWEETWATER COUNTY — An unsolved 2006 Sweetwater County murder case will be the subject of a nationally-broadcast television feature early next week.

Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell said Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen will run a special story on the Ben Bradley case on Fox 13 News Channel beginning at 2:00 PM mountain time on Monday, December 12. Local cable subscribers will be able to watch the story on Channel 12.

Bradley, 28, was hitchhiking from his home in Tabernash, Colorado, to Jackson, Wyoming, on a snowboarding outing when he disappeared in the Rock Springs area on the night of Friday, June 2, 2006. He was dressed in brown wool cargo pocket pants, a blue hooded sweatshirt, and a gray t-shirt. He had with him his unique, custom-made Never Summer “split-board” snowboard, a representation of which is pictured here.

Lowell said the snowboard splits into two short skis, permitting the user to climb slopes. The split board can then be reassembled and used as a conventional downhill snowboard.

Bradley’s badly decomposed body was found near the base of Boar’s Tusk, about 25 miles north of Rock Springs, by sightseers on October 1, 2006

An autopsy determined the cause of death to be multiple stab wounds to the chest area.

Bradley’s snowboard has never been recovered. Lowell said Sheriff’s Office investigators have followed up on multiple leads over the years concerning the missing snowboard and Bradley’s movements leading up to his disappearance. He hopes the exposure resulting from Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen’s story will generate still more.

“We’ve made some definite headway in several areas of our investigation,” Lowell said. “Obviously, Ben’s still-missing snowboard is an extremely important factor.”

Anyone with information concerning Bradley, pictured here, or his snowboard is encouraged to contact the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office at (307) 875-1400 or a local law enforcement agency.

8/18/2015 - David Vernon Lovely - Missing Person

This account was written by David`s Sister to plead for information on the disappearance.


On Aug. 14, 1985, my brother David’s motorcycle was discovered on a dirt road in Rock Springs, Wyoming and he was officially declared “endagered missing” by law enforcement. It has been 29 years since anyone in my family last heard David’s voice, laughed with him, shared jokes, admired his drawings or got to tell him we loved him.

David was driving cross country from California to Massachussetts in tandem with my mother and sister, who were in a U-Haul moving truck. At a certain point on Aug 4th, David drove ahead of them. There were no cell phones in 1985, and on Aug 5th, David called my aunt Barbara in Massachusetts from a payphone in Rock Springs. He told her his bike had broken down, he’d spent the night in a ditch and in the morning had walked 3 miles into town, where he’d met another motorcyclist who fixed his bike. The man seemed intimidating at first but David said he turned out to be a nice guy. He wanted my aunt to let my mom and sister know he was OK and that he was heading to a rest area 11 miles east where he hoped to meet up with them. He never arrived.

In August, 1985, my brother David Vernon Lovely, age 19, was riding a maroon 1978 Model 1100 Yamaha motorcycle with California license 8N3477 fitted with saddle bags and a luggage rack. When found the bike’s keys were in the ignition, it had ½ tank of gas and was in running condition. Over the years, law enforcement has searched the area extensively for David and other missing persons but have found no clues as to what happened to my brother.

We hope this year someone will finally come forward with information that will help us find him.

Her father and grandmothers have went to be with Jesus not knowing who did this. I am asking my friends to share this and if anyone knows anything please contact someone in the family or the RSPD.

Please help my grandmother and her siblings get some kind of closure. This has weighted on this family for years. The not knowing is hell.

The Family thanks you.
