"It was reported that Shepard was beaten so brutally that his face was completely covered in blood, except where it had been partially washed clean by his tears."

Shepard had suffered fractures to the back of his head and in front of his right ear. He experienced severe brain-stem damage, which affected his body's ability to regulate heart rate, body temperature, and other vital functions. There also were about a dozen small lacerations around his head, face, and neck. His injuries were deemed too severe for doctors to operate. Shepard never regained consciousness and remained on full life support. While he lay in intensive care, candlelight vigils were held by the people of Laramie.

Shepard was pronounced dead at 12:53 a.m. on October 12, 1998, at Poudre Valley Hospital, in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Police arrested McKinney and Henderson shortly thereafter, finding the bloody gun and Shepard's shoes and wallet in their truck
