Willoughby Sues Sublette County Officers

Court2

Troy Willoughby, the man acquitted in the 1984 murder of a Jackson waitress has filed a lawsuit against two former Sublette County sheriff’s deputies and a former Sublette County investigator, claiming they withheld evidence that would have cleared him during his murder trial.  The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Casper, is against Randall Hanson, former Investigator for the Sublette County Attorney’s Office, Brian Ketterhagen, former Captain of the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, and Sarah Brew, Deputy in the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office.
In his complaint, Willoughby claims “Members of the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office and an Investigator working for the Sublette County Attorney’s Office knowingly and willingly conspired and agreed to withhold and hide exculpatory evidence in a criminal case against Mr. Willoughby in which he was tried and convicted of murder in 2010. He was later granted a new trial when it came forward that potentially exculpatory evidence was kept from the defense by the prosecution team. The new trial was held in Fremont County where in February, 2012 it took just 2 hours for the jury to acquit him of the murder. No complaint has been filed to date against Sublette County.
