Lauren Moser was 4 years old when her father, Danny Moser, was killed. Today, on the 21st anniversary of his death and as the case remains under active investigation, the 25-year-old Casper mom and college student has only vague memories of him. But she has been told by family that she looks exactly like her father, right down to his distinct cleft chin, and walks and talks like him, too.
Lauren’s 3-year-old daughter also is his spitting image, too. “We both have his chin,” she said with a smile in her voice.
Other than his appearance, Lauren can’t remember anything about her father. “That’s the issue,” she said in an interview with the Wyoming Truth. “I woke up one morning and couldn’t remember the sound of his voice, his smell or anything.”
Lauren’s grandmother advised her to look in the mirror and say, “I love you,” because that’s the closest she’ll ever get to her dad again.
She’d settle for answers about what happened that night and who killed her father.
Danny Moser was found lying unconscious in a pool of his own blood just after 1 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2001, in a roller skating rink parking lot in Mills, a town of just under 4,000, about five miles outside Casper. He’d been badly beaten and hit by a car, according to police records.
