It was May 16, 1986 when the small western Wyoming town of Cokeville changed forever. Former Town Marshall David Young and his wife, Doris, took a number of hostages at the Cokeville elementary school for a million dollars a child. The Youngs had weapons and a homemade bomb. The bomb eventually went off, killing Doris Young and injuring many of the hostages. David Young shot himself moments later. The 25 year anniversary of the horrific event is not only being remembered in Cokeville. It is also being chronicled by the office of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources. That's thanks to a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund. Bob Beck has this story.
