The creator of a not-yet-completed film about a central government takeover of society following a collapse and his family have been found dead in their Minnesota home, with authorities claiming that the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide.
As reported by the Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis, David Crowley, 29, his wife, Komel, 28, and their 5-year-old daughter were found in their Apple Valley home days ago after a neighbor called to report their bodies.
A statement from the Apple Valley police department said detectives so far were calling the deaths “an apparent murder-suicide.”
Dailymail covered it, without mentioning the film:
The deaths were reported by neighbor Collin Prochnow, who told authorities that he discovered the bodies, which were taken to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office for further evaluation.
The paper further reported that Prochnow initially went to the home to collect packages that had been gathering on the front steps. He told police that’s when he looked inside the home and saw the bodies. A dog was also inside the home.
Bodies had been there for days
The Star Tribune further reported:
Several neighbors said they thought Crowley may have been a military or ex-military member, and that he had close-cropped hair and tattoos. One neighbor said he thought Crowley worked at home doing screenwriting of some kind, and that his wife worked as a dietitian.
In a YouTube video, Crowley is credited as writer and director of a movie-in-progress, “Gray State.” The trailer shows scenes of a militarized police force, much gun violence and some kind of citizen insurgency. The trailer solicits online donors to help finance the project.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, along with the Dakota County Sheriff’s Office, are assisting local Apple Valley police in the investigation. Police have said they aren’t sure how long the bodies have been in the house, but Prochnow believes it has been since before Christmas because of the packages that had been gathering outside of the home. Also, Prochnow said he had not seen his neighbors since before Christmas Day, adding that they had lived in the home for about a year-and-a-half.
Other neighbors, Alice Hixson and her husband Bill, told the local paper that they have lived in the home across the street from the Crowleys for 21 years. They told reporters that they had seen the family in passing and that they had also seen the father playing with his daughter in the back yard.
“It’s such a grisly, gruesome thing,” Alice Hixson, a neighbor, said.
In the movie trailer, there are scenes where ordinary Americans are being forced to have identification technology implanted under their skin, so they can purchase food and other goods; scenes of police and National Guard attacking unarmed crowds and shooting some people in the back of the head; empty store shelves; police removing people from their homes during raids at night; and what appear to be “rebel” groups battling troops and police.
Towards the end of the trailer appear the words, “The Second American Revolution May Not Be Remembered,” followed by a male narrator voice. David Crowley appears in credits at the end of the two-plus minute trailer as the writer and director.
By consent or conquest
A synopsis of the film below the trailer on YouTube states, in part:
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance — these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
