This ABC 20/20 documentary is a re-examination of the circumstances surrounding the 1998 murder of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The investigation revealed that the motive behind this high-profile homicide was more complicated than the anti-gay motive originally imagined. For example, the investigation found methamphetamine use by the perpetrator, Aaron McKinney, played a role in the crime, sources who say the killer and victim were not strangers, and sources who claim that Aaron McKinney was bisexual and not uncomfortable around gay people.
