On dirt road that leads to Wahneta, Florida a driver made the ghastly discovery of a bloody body stabbed to death sitting on the side of the road. The date was Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at about 1:20AM.
That dead man was Ryan Keith Skipper, 25, a gay man. The trials of his accused murders – William David Brown Jr., 22, and Joseph Bearden, 23 – begin today, after several delays, as lawyers begin selecting a jury in a Polk County courtroom, reports The Ledger.
The pair were arrested soon after Skipper’s body was found and have remained in custody over the past two years.
Details of what happened between the three men remain sketchy. Family and friends hope the trial will shed light on Skipper’s final hours.
