Today, Fremont County Attorney Pat LeBrun released the following statement
regarding a development in the case involving Clyde Stone.
"Developments have arisen in the case involving Clyde Stone, the specifics
of which this Office is not at liberty to comment. Law enforcement
personnel are actively investigating additional matters that have come to
attention since the original charging documents were filed. Some of these
matters may have merit and it is necessary for a full investigation to be
completed before this case proceeds. This process is necessary and proper

accused of crime is innocent until proven guilty."
