NEW DOC EXAMINES ‘GRAY STATE’ MURDER-SUICIDE

A new documentary is offering disturbing insight into why an aspiring Minnesota filmmaker, David Crowley, murdered his family before killing himself.

“This is a self-portrait of a man falling to pieces,” said Erik Nelson, the director of the documentary, ‘A Gray State,’ which borrows the name from Crowley’s unfinished film project. The movie has its local premiere Thursday night at the Walker Art Center.

On Jan. 17, 2015, Apple Valley Police found the bodies of David Crowley, 29, his wife Komel, 28, and their five-year-old daughter, Rania. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner determined it was a murder-suicide, with David shooting his wife and daughter before turning the gun on himself.

After a year-long investigation, Apple Valley Police shared details of the grisly crime with the FOX 9 Investigators last year, including how David Crowley scrawled the words Allah Akbar, Arabic for “God is the

Traumatised dad

 

AN elderly father was traumatised Sunday after he witnessed one of his sons shooting another son during a domestic dispute at their home on Delacree Road in St Andrew, while a third had to run to escape bullets after a gun was aimed at him.

Dave Coke, 42, a bus driver, was shot and killed by his 39-year-old brother, an accountant and a licensed firearm holder. He was later taken into police custody for questioning. A woman was allegedly shot and injured during the fracas.

According to investigators from the Hunts Bay Police Station, the incident occurred about 11:15 am.

The distraught father, Mervin Coke, was so weakened from his experience that he could not stand and had to sit outside the horrific crime scene on a chair.

“Mi couldn’t manage when mi see, mi couldn’t stan’ (stand) up,” said Coke, who said he felt like he was a going to faint after witnessing

Setting the Scene

The Clinton High School library was operating under a little different circumstances Thursday morning.

It was still filled with students. The usual couches, chairs and computer tables were all in place. However, in a small room off to the side, there was a horrific crime scene.

The fictional crime scene, featuring a suspicious corpse, broken and strewn furniture, unknown pills, and other artifacts, was all part of CHS’s Project Lead the Way, more specifically the class Principles of Biomedical Science. Students, under the direction of instructor Tami Cottrell, have now been tasked with thoroughly examining the crime scene and drawing conclusions by the end of the unit.

The class aims to combine traditional sciences such as biology and chemistry with the medical field. It provides a true hands-on experience for the class, Cottrell says.

“The idea behind this course is that we have a victim who has passed away, and it is now our

D’oh, a deer: brazen bambi leaves Melbourne funeral home looking like ‘horrific crime scene’

A Melbourne funeral home looks like a “horrific crime scene” after a feral deer chased a worker into the chapel before going “nuts”.

The 250kg animal charged at the worker at Tobin Brothers Funerals at Ringwood on Thursday afternoon, its managing director, James MacLeod, told AAP.

The animal was “going completely nuts” in the chapel and smashed into furniture and walls, injuring itself.

“It was bleeding and it’s like a horrific crime scene in here,” he said.

A funeral was due to be held in the chapel on Thursday night but was relocated due to the damage.

“The family were understanding but they didn’t quite believe it,” MacLeod said.

Alternative arrangements have been made for upcoming funerals. The damage is estimated at $100,000. The deer was contained and put down by rangers.

Victoria’s feral deer population is estimated at one million by the National Parks Association, with increasing

News of the Week: Man charged in double slaying – Glens Falls Post

GLENS FALLS — Police have charged Bryan M. Redden, 21, with killing a young mother and her daughter and the investigation is working to figure out why he would have committed the brutal murders.

Authorities said Redden did not offer an explanation for the attack that left Crystal Riley, 33, and her 4-year-old daughter Lilly Frasier dead with knife wounds in their apartment at 148 South St.
