Laramie County Sheriff’s Department Will Treat T-Joe’s Stabbing As Homicide


Laramie County authorities say a man whose body was found at a campground east of Cheyenne died of a stab wound to the heart.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Linda Gesell says the death of 34-year-old David Pease is being investigated as a homicide.

Pease had last been seen on Friday night by co-workers at T-Joe’s Steakhouse and Saloon. When he did not show up for work on Saturday a co-worker went looking for him and found his naked body outside his trailer. A knife was found nearby.

Gesell says officers also found a bloody sleeping bag inside Pease’s trailer.
