    PA - Jason Shephard, 23, drugged & murdered, Thornbury, 19 Sept 2006

    The body of 23 year old Jason Shephard was found in the basement of a Pennsylvania home on Thursday, but court papers show the young man was killed days before that. Shephard had arrived in Pennsylvania as part of his internship on the 16th. It was supposed to be a quick, three day trip.

    That is just awful. How sad.

    Boy, the day we come to men giving other men GHB to date rape them, I'd say our society better re-evaluate itself. Pretty sicko!

    It is "sicko", but it's *no* more sick than men giving it to women to date rape them.

    Yeah. I think you're right about that Hoppy. We seldom hear about men being victimized like this.

    Love your nick!

    This took place in my neck of the woods. I haven't seen anything new today, but it was all over the papers over the weekend.

    From November 2008:

    http://articles.philly.com/2008-11-2...-degree-murder

    As the jury foreman pronounced Smithson guilty of first-degree murder, Kyle Shephard rested his head on his wife's, and both sobbed. Their daughter leaned on her mother's shoulder and cried.

    The body of Jason Shephard, a 23-year-old intern with the South Dakota scoreboard manufacturer Daktronics, was found in Smithson's basement in Thornbury Township on Sept. 21, 2006. Prosecutors said Smithson, 43, had drugged Shephard, and strangled the young man from Cavalier, N.D., after Shephard fought off Smithson's sexual advances...

    Jason Shephard, an avid runner, had taken a semester off from his studies at Northern State University in Aberdeen, S.D., for a six-month internship at Daktronics. Smithson was a manager of the Edgmont location.
    From April 2011:

    http://www.delcotimes.com/general-ne...mode=fullstory

    Kyle and Carol Shephard of Cavalier, N.D., the victim's parents, have filed a civil suit in Delaware County Court...

    William Smithson, 46, formerly of Thornbury, who is serving life in jail for the strangulation death of Shephard, is not a defendant in the civil action...
