KINGMAN – The son of a Bullhead City police officer has been sentenced to 18 1/2 years in prison in a kidnapping and aggravated assault case.

William Michael Savory, 30, was convicted June 28 on those charges following a weeklong trial in Mohave County Superior Court. He was acquitted of attempted murder.

Judge Richard Weiss could have sentenced Savory to 23 years in prison on the kidnapping charge.

Weiss credited Savory with about 1.75 years already served while in custody and ordered him to repay $7,290 in medical costs to the victim and $7,515 to the county’s Victim Witness program.

Lisa Bracamonte, of Bullhead City, was found alive in a Topock marsh by fishermen with her throat slashed Feb. 23, 2001.

One other man was convicted in the case late last year. A third suspect was cleared of all charges.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
