SWEETWATER COUNTY, WYO – A homicide case more than a decade old has just had new life breathed into it.
Sweetwater County detectives are processing evidence from a residence on Bridger Avenue in Rock Springs in relation to the 2006 Ben Bradley murder case.
Bradley was a Tabernash, Colorado resident hitchhiking his way to Jackson in the summer of 2006 when he disappeared. He was last seen in the Rock Springs area on the night of Friday, June 2, 2006.
Four months later, Bradley’s badly decomposed body was found by sightseers on October 1 near the base of Boar’s Tusk, about 25 miles north of Rock Springs. It was determined at autopsy that the cause of death was multiple stab wounds to the chest area. Bradley was 28 years old at the time of his death.
Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Detective Dick Blust, said that processing the Bridger Avenue home is the result of fresh lead information.
“The Bradley case is ongoing,” Blust explained. “As an unsolved homicide, it’s under constant review, plus we follow up new leads as they come in and take appropriate action.”
Authorities ask that anyone with information concerning Bradley or his snowboard contact the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office at (307) 875-1400.
