Fight Leads To Murder-Suicide


     Wyoming authorities say a fight between two Casper men near Casper last Friday night ended in a murder–suicide.

     The Natrona County Coroner’s Office says its preliminary investigation indicates  33-year old Ryan Rosty shot and killed 58-year-old Stephen Skaj, then used the same gun to take his own life. 

     The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office says deputies found both men unconscious at the scene about 5:15 pm Friday with EMS personnel declaring both Skaj and Rosty dead at the scene.

     Witnesses told investigators the two men had been fighting, but when Skaj began walking away, Rosty shot him and then shot himself. Investigators say physical evidence on scene was consistent with the witness statement.
