Deaths Of “Gray State” Director And Family Under Investigation21/01/2015 16:24
Apple Valley, MN- Police have released limited details regarding the deaths of filmmaker David Crowley, his wife Komel, and their 5-year-old daughter, but have acknowledged that the deaths are being treated as “suspicious” while an investigation is underway.
The bodies of David, Komel and their daughter were discovered on Saturday by the Crowley’s next-door neighbor, Collin Prochnow. It was reported that the bodies had been inside the home for several weeks. Prochnow said that he had not seen any activity in the Crowley’s home since around Christmas, and he had initially assumed the family was traveling during the holidays. Prochnow said that packages were accumulating on the home’s doorstep and noticed that the lights inside the house were on day and night, so he decided to check on the family’s wellbeing over the past weekend.
Prochnow looked through a window of the house and discovered three bodies, along with a handgun, laying on the floor. A dog, which was alive, was also present. Audio from police radio obtained by MnPoliceClips.com revealed that police had found “several obviously deceased bodies in the front” of the home and there was a “very angry dog inside.” Police stated that the situation appears to have been a murder-suicide.
David Crowley was a filmmaker credited with writing and directing a film called “Gray State” that has yet to be completed. The movie is about police militarization and martial law imposed in the United States and was described on its Facebook page as a film about a wounded veteran who “leads the insurgency against a corrupt Government after nationwide martial law has been declared.”
