Moneta is an unincorporated community in Fremont County, Wyoming, United States. Moneta is located on U.S. Route 26 20.1 miles (32.3 km) east-southeast of Shoshoni. It is also located close to the geographic center of the state.
In 2002, the vehicle in the "Lil' Miss murder" was uncovered in Moneta after DNA evidence linked the landowner, Dale Wayne Eaton, to the murder of Lisa Kimmell. Following a civil suit in which Eaton's land was given to Kimmell's parents, the buildings on the property were burned to the ground.
