the first eight minutes of Soldier’s Girl

Former Army Specialist Justin Fisher, convicted of conspiracy in the July 1999 murder of PFC Barry Winchell, has been released from prison. Fisher was Winchell’s roommate at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and spurred on fellow soldier Calvin Glover to beat Winchell to death one night with a baseball bat after months of anti-gay harassment.

The story of Winchell’s murder is told in the 2003 film Soldier’s Girl. Fisher was played by Shawn Hatosy who appears in the clip below, the first eight minutes of Soldier’s Girl.
