INTERIM POLICE CHIEF STEVE SCHULZ HAS RAISED DOUBTS ABOUT THE HANDLING OF THE INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE DISAPPEARANCE OF KRISTI RICHARDSON THREE YEARS AGO THIS WEEK, THE SUICIDE OF MICK MCMURRY IN MARCH 2015, AND POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE TWO.

SCHULZ SAID IN A DEPOSITION RECORDED SEPTEMBER 8 AND FILED IN NATRONA COUNTY DISTRICT COURT THAT IN HIS OPINION AND THE OPINION OF THOSE WORKING ON THE RICHARDSON INVESTIGATION THAT INTERVIEWS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED EARLIER, AND SOME PEOPLE WHO MAY HAVE KNOWN SOMETHING ABOUT HER DISAPPEARANCE WEREN'T INTERVIEWED AT ALL.

LIKEWISE, HE SAID INTERVIEWS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED, OR CONDUCTED EARLIER, IN THE MCMURRY SUICIDE.
SCHULZ WAS DEPOSED BY CHEYENNE ATTORNEY BRUCE MOATS. MOATS REPRESENTS LOVCOM, INC., A COMPANY OWNED BY SHERIDAN BUSINESSMAN KIM LOVE THAT HAS SUED THE CITY OF CASPER, SCHULZ AND THE WYOMING DIVISION OF CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION.

LOVCOM WANTS THEM TO MAKE THE RECORDS OF THE INVESTIGATIONS PUBLIC BECAUSE OF QUESTIONS WHETHER THE POLICE DEPARTMENT DID ALL IT COULD
CITY OF CASPER ATTORNEY WILLIAM CHAMBERS AND WYOMING ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENERAL JOHN BRODIE ALSO WERE PRESENT AT THE DEPOSITION.

SCHULZ SAID THE OVERSIGHT ON THE PART OF THE FORMER ADMINISTRATION OF THE POLICE DEPARTMENT MAY HAVE NOT GIVEN THE DETECTIVES THE FREE REIGN NEEDED TO DO THEIR WORK.

SCHULZ TURNED OVER THE RICHARDSON CASE TO THE DCI ON MAY 18, LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AFTER POLICE CHIEF JIM WETZEL WAS FIRED.

ON JUNE 7, SCHULZ LIKEWISE TURNED OVER THE CLOSED CASE OF THE MCMURRY SUICIDE IN LIGHT OF ALLEGATIONS OF A POSSIBLE CONNECTION TO THE RICHARDSON DISAPPEARANCE.

IN BOTH CASES, SCHULZ TOLD THE DCI IT COULD LOOK AT THEM WITH FRESH EYES.

THE DCI HAS SAID PROVIDING THE RECORDS COULD JEOPARDIZE ITS WORK.

SCHULZ SAID HE WAS NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN THE RICHARDSON AND MCMURRY INVESTIGATIONS AT THE TIME, BUT HE CAME TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THEM AFTER WETZEL'S DISMISSAL AND TALKING WITH THE DEPARTMENT'S COMMAND STAFF AND THE DETECTIVES WHO WORKED ON THE CASES.
