SALT LAKE CITY -- The event is now scarred into our national psyche: 59 people dead, including the gunman, and almost 500 injured in what has become the most deadly mass shooting in recent U.S. history.

The gripping stories of what happened that night are as varied as the people who lived through it. Amy Beckstead of Herriman was about 20 feet from the front of the stage when the nightmare began, and recently she joined Bob Evans for 3 Questions.

  2. Because the gunman took his own life, is there any sense of frustration that he was not brought to justice?
