On Oct. 20, 2001, a police officer in Mills, Wyoming, was on patrol when he saw a person lying in the parking lot of the Wagon Wheel Roller Skating Rink, according to the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigations.

The officer went to the person and found 27-year-old Daniel “Danny” Moser in a pool of blood.

He was taken to a Wyoming hospital, where he died two days later.

Moser was a resident of the nearby town of Casper, Wyoming, and visited the bars the night before the murder.

His daughter, Lauren Moser, was 4 years old when her father was killed. In 2019, she spoke about the case to Wyoming’s K2 Radio. She said because of his death she grew up without a father.

"I absolutely have no answers,” Lauren told the station.

Police continue to investigate the case, and there is some belief that Danny might have been hit by a car. His death is classified as a homicide, but police have yet to find the person responsible or make an arrest in the case.

Lauren told the radio station that seeing the person who killed her dad would be a “golden ticket.”

"That would bring up our spirits a lot more," Lauren said. "We all obviously understand our dad's not coming back."

She admitted the day would be bittersweet as it would give answers, but it would also mean finding out what happened. She also didn’t know what she would say to her father’s killer, according to K2 Radio.

"You robbed me. You stole from me. Now myself, my daughter, her kids ... They'll never know who their grandpa is, who she's named after. They will never understand why she carries that name,” Lauren told the outlet. "I'd also say I forgive them because I've come to peace with it."
