  • Lawyer: Man wanted by Wyoming authorities near death Dec 30, 2014 1:09 PM
    TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. — A lawyer for a man charged with sexually assaulting campers in Wyoming decades ago says the 94-year-old is near death in northern Michigan and may not make it to the weekend. Quoting doctors, Anders Gillis says William Bricker might live as long as two weeks but could die within 48 hours. Bricker is supposed to be examined Tuesday by a mental health professional in the Traverse City area to determine whether he understands that Wyoming wants to extradite him. Bricker is in hospice care. Gillis predicts “this case is going to be moot” soon. Bricker is accused of molesting children at the Teton Valley Ranch Camp in the 1960s and 1980s. Bricker was a volunteer at the camp in Teton County, Wyoming. Bricker also was a teacher in Winnetka, Illinois.
