US Marshalls murdered Weaver’s 14-year-old son Sammy Weaver and his dog Striker on August 21, 1992. One day later, FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi executed Weaver’s wife Vicki from over 200 yards away while she was cradling their 10-month-old baby, Elisheba. Horiuchi sniped Randy Weaver in the back but failed to kill him. Weaver was later acquitted of all charges in relation to the defense of his family’s home by a jury in Boise, Idaho in what the New York Times called a “strong rebuke” of the federal government.
