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

Investigator | Prosecutors want death row inmate back behind bars for violent murder and rape – WKYC

Marty Flynn still remembers the silence…33 years later. The eerie silence belied the horror waiting inside an old Brooklyn duplex. 

“I walked upstairs and looked in her room and found her on her bed.” It was his sister. 

The scene was disturbing. Mary Anne Flynn, a 33-year-old nurse, was raped and strangled. 

Cleveland Police quickly focused on neighbor Tony Apanovitch, a roughneck drinker with a sordid past of sex offenses. He once painted Flynn’s home, but she feared him. 

But despite a bloody crime scene, there was no physical evidence…not yet anyway. 

“Anthony Apanovitch is a violent killer and rapist,” says Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley. “I have no doubt whatsoever about that.”

O’Malley says Apanovitch had already been convicted of forcibly raping a 16-year-old in 1976. But the conviction was reversed and he pleaded guilty to sexual battery.

Sangoma wanted for lover ‘murder’. . . Woman found raped at bloody crime scene

police-investigation

Whinsley Masara, Chronicle Reporter
A LUPANE woman, who was axed four times and appeared to have been raped, was found dead at her homestead. Her unidentified live-in boyfriend of three months, a sangoma, has since disappeared and is allegedly on the run.

Torn used condoms and a bloodied axe were found next to Hlalani Ngwenya’s naked body that lay in a pool of blood outside her bedroom recently.

Ngwenya (38) had four deep cuts on her head and indications are that she was raped before she was murdered. The incident occurred at Dandanda Village, St Lukes Area, under Chief Mabhikwa in Lupane.

Villagers told The Chronicle that they did not know the sangoma’s name as he was relatively new in the village.

“We don’t even know where he originated from,” said a villager on condition of anonymity.

“The sangoma was last seen

2 men confessed to murder. Their DNA tells another story.

They said they did it.

Eric Kelley signed a confession saying he stabbed the Paterson video store clerk during a 1993 robbery.

Ralph Lee signed one, too, admitting he beat the clerk with a car radio as the clerk struggled with Kelley.

The two young black men said in their confessions they left the store with a handful of cash and some electronics, which they pawned for drug money as their victim lay dying. During the robbery, they said, a white accomplice kept watch outside.

A prosecutor later dubbed the trio the “rainbow coalition of evil.”

Their alleged accomplice, who denied everything, was acquitted. There was no physical evidence connecting any of the three to the scene, and Kelley and Lee quickly recanted their confessions, claiming they made them up under pressure from police.

Two juries found them guilty anyway.

After all, who would confess to a crime they didn’t commit?
