Where is Bryce Dickey Now?
Bryce Dickey was known to Gabrielle “Britney” Ujlaky, a 16-year-old girl who saw him as a big brother. Their bond formed around a shared passion for rodeo and horse riding, a common thread in their lives. However, beneath the surface of this friendship lurked a more sinister intent.
The Incident and Investigation
Dickey was the last person to see Gabrielle alive after picking her up from Angel Park in Elko. Dickey’s account of their last interaction involved driving around before dropping Gabrielle off at Spring Creek High School to meet a friend. He fabricated a tale of a mysterious man in a cowboy hat and a green pickup, a story later proven to be a complete falsehood designed to mislead the investigation.
As the investigation unfolded, inconsistencies in Dickey’s narrative emerged. Crucial CCTV footage contradicted his account, showing his vehicle heading in the opposite direction of the school. Furthermore, evidence at the crime scene, including a condom with Dickey’s DNA, implicated him directly in the murder.
Additional incriminating evidence included Dickey’s DNA under Gabrielle’s nails, on her neck, and the discovery of bloodstained work boots and a sweatshirt at his residence. A knife, potentially the murder weapon, was also found.
Trial and Conviction
Dickey’s trial revealed a complex web of lies and manipulation. Despite his initial claim of consensual sex on the day of the murder, the jury, after a week of deliberation, convicted him of first-degree murder and sexual assault with a deadly weapon.
Following his conviction, Bryce Dickey was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after seventy years. He now resides in the Lovelock Correctional Centre in Nevada.
