Reggie Fluty is the policewoman who first responded to the scene where Matthew Shepard was found. She is also Marge Murray’s daughter. While she was trying to stabilize Matthew and put him in the ambulance, Reggie was exposed to his HIV positive blood. Reggie was put on an aggressive post-exposure medical regime to reduce her likelihood of contracting the disease, and later tested negative for HIV. Reggie’s altruism in helping Matthew despite not having proper equipment, and her obvious care for him and his case, show that Reggie clearly is well fit for her job. Meanwhile, the conclusion of her storyline provides a clear-cut happy ending for at least one person in the play.
