Wyoming Trooper Planned To Kill Trucker

A Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper arrested a Wal-Mart truck driver as part of a scheme to murder him and stage a crash in order to collect a settlement from the company, according to an FBI affidavit unsealed Tuesday.

Franklin Ryle Jr. stopped the driver while patrolling near Douglas in January, and after taking him into custody based on a bogus warrant, let him go, states the affidavit, which had been under court seal since late March. The next day, Ryle allegedly told another trooper that his plan couldn’t involve a Wal-Mart truck because those vehicles had global positioning systems installed in them.
