The book I found didn't mention anything about foul play. Just that he drowned in the River and was found a ways away from where they found his horse.

Ok one of the Crow Creeks in the State has a moutain called
[SIZE=3]Signal moutain, where and why the name. [/SIZE]
I think I have the answer:

The Hill had a sweeping view of Crow Creek Canyon so it served as a lookout from which warning signals where broadcasted to the Mormons and other fugitives when unannounced parties entered the Valley. When the lookout spotted strangers he would send up a smoke signal allowing the folks below to take cover. It is located in the Upper Star Valley area.

Right, They could watch the easiest way into the Valley and set a fire and the polygamist could go to the mountains for a camping trip.
Now Freedom the polygamist had a house on each side of the Road if the Wyoming Sherriff came the went across the road to Idaho.

Okay: The Jump Shot in basketball was first "invented" by a young man who attended high school in Laramie. Name the young man and the year he "invented" it? (2 part question)
