search for missing law firm ends with discovery of body
A five-day search to get a missing Wyoming lawyer ended on Saturday when he was discovered dead in his SUV close to a dry lake.
Cody lawyer Charles George Kepler, a former president from the Wyoming Bar Association, was discovered just six days prior to his 90th birthday, the Billings Gazette reports. The vehicle had turn out to be stuck inside a way that Kepler was unable to obtain out from the car, the Large Horn Radio Network reports.
Kepler had practiced law with former U.S. Sen. Al Simpson for much more than 40 years, the Billings Gazette says. Simpson told the newspaper that he had recommended to Kepler that he carry a cellphone or get a place service in his vehicle. Kepler had responded, "Not in your life."
Kepler joined Simpson's law firm in 1960 to prevent a transfer to Canada in his position as common counsel for Husky Oil. The two lawyers handled a number of instances. "We tackled murder, divorce, incest, rape, cowboys tagging every other," Simpson stated. "There wasn't something we would not do simply because we believed a lawyer's job was to represent human beings and not just a corporate balance sheet."
