The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a homicide that occurred on Christmas Eve, near Pavillion, Fremont County, Wyoming.

At around 8:46 p.m. on December 24th, 2020, the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call reporting that a man had sustained a significant injury to the chest. When deputies arrived at the address, they found a 41-year-old man with an apparent stab wound to the chest. Deputies and ambulance crews attempted to render aid, but unfortunately the man did not survive. After preliminary investigation, a 39-year-old Pavillion area female, Bennilee Strock, was arrested in connection with the man’s death. Bennilee Strock is currently being held at the Fremont County Detention Center on the charge of Murder in the Second Degree.

There is no evidence to suggest that anyone other than the 39-year-old female, whom is in custody, was involved in the man’s death and there is no danger to the community. The investigation remains active and additional details will be released at a later time.
