In this episode, we re-create the timeline of events from the weekend of parties at the wrestler’s house to the discovery of Dammion’s body. In the days leading up to his disappearance, Dammion was displaying aggressive and impulsive behavior. Were these signs of a deeper problem or just typical emotional ups and downs? The last image of Dammion alive is from a gas station surveillance video. We break down the footage and look for clues. Did he go back to the party after getting gas, and when and why did he drive to Cabin Creek?

Rumors are spreading across campus as people speculate what happened to Dammion. Nearly everyone refutes the idea that Dammion killed himself. Reports surface that members of the track team beat Dammion up and dumped his body and car. There are also allegations of drug use and a witness describes seeing the wrestling captain place Dammion in a “sleeper hold” to calm him down. Is there an element of truth buried in these rumors or is it college gossip run amuck?

The Arrest

Gunnison police arrest two Western students on drug charges as a result of the investigation into Dammion’s death. They are accused of providing him LSD, which is presented as proximate cause of his suicide. Experts on pharmacology and psychiatry question the correlation. Is Dammion the “one-in-a-million” case of suicide on LSD?
The Report

The Report

2021-06-2259:442

The Medical Examiner rules Dammion’s death a suicide and the police close the case, devastating Dammion’s family. The local newspaper polls over 1,000 Gunnison residents, and 85 percent say they do not believe Dammion’s case should have been closed. Police defend their decision with an expert report from Denver Police Lt. Matthew Murray. In this special, extended length episode, we go through the report point by point with Murray himself, and brief him on additional evidence he was not privy to at the time. Will his opinion of Dammion’s cause of death change with more information?

I am not really sure why everyone keeps saying he, "was such a nice guy." He goes around picking fights with people. How nice is that?!
