Who is Emily Keyes?

Last September 27, 2006, Emily Keyes was a hostage on a hostage taking drama at The Platte Canyon High School in Bailey, Colorado. During the incident, Duane Roger, 53 years old, the hostage taker,took six female students hostage and sexually assaulted them, later releasing four.

When police broke open the classroom's door with explosives, Morrison opened fire with a semi-automatic pistol before shooting hostage Emily Keyes in the head. The other remaining hostage escaped unharmed, and paramedics confirmed that Morrison had committed suicide shortly before police were able to enter the classroom. Keyes was pronounced dead at 4:32 p.m. MDT (23:32 UTC) at Saint Anthony's Hospital in Denver, Colorado after undergoing emergency surgery.
