The PDF Release Agreement That Danny August Mason Refused To Sign
This is the legal document that Danny August Mason refused to sign. This was forwarded to Mr. Mason in August, 2014, and wasn't signed at the time of the Crowley family deaths.

    I'm looking for the music playing list that was playing at the crime scene. There were 53 songs, I'd love to know the music David liked. Could you possibly send me the download of the names of the 53 songs. I'd really appreciate it, as I am a big fan of David's work.

    music list

    2 more questions:
    -The limbs of the deceased that are missing, were they chewed off or cut off? There would be a difference & it could possibly give new direction/explanation for the case.
    -I know from experience, parents have to give emergency contact info when kids are in school/daycare/etc. Where are the voice mails on home phone, cells, family members, from the school? If a child doesn't show up for a few weeks & they can't contact anyone, why wasn't a call made to police/etc?

  • TheCanadian (Sunday, February 25 18 02:04 pm EST)

    Cibdy, according to autopsy reports recently released, the missing body parts were consistent with "animal scavenging".
    2. you can put husband and wife as emergency contacts, they can't force you to add anyone else. Kindergarten isn't mandatory - absences aren't considered truancy, they likely chalked it up to an extended xmas vacation.

    The school would call. My grandson is in pre-k , they will call if you miss. It’s usually a recording is what you get .

    Don't murder-suicides kill their pets, too? They do it so the pets won't suffer being trapped there without humans, without food and water. Pets are considered part of their family.

    All BS... the pi Hennen hired ruled with the police. Double murder, suicide and they still want to act like it was a conspiracy. David Crowley was no one special. Just a producer doing a movie. Big deal

    Due to Komel having the Epiphany that she and her family is to leave this world then her DNA being found on the gun safe, it is possible that she shot the child.

    Say David was in the basement or his office came out aft the gunshot and found Komel holing their child with the gun beside her. He picks it up, and out of anger shoots Komel. Komel would have never placed the Quoran on the floor that is against all Islamic beliefs. Possibly being angry of the death of his daughter and his wife reading the Quoran he possibly wrote on the wall with Komel’s blood out of spite.
    Now I can not explain how he could have shot himself in the right side of the head with the gun being found on the left side of his body. Unless when he fired and as he fell his right arm came across his body and the gun fell to the left of his body.

    I can not see a father shooting his daughter in the face and how did she get a broken rib?

    We will possibly never know.

    Can anyone guide me to a List of the 53 songs in David Crowley's "Ascent" Playlist, that was playing in a loop at the time of the Crowley's deaths. Can anyone guide me to a List of the 53 songs in David Crowley's "Ascent" Playlist, that was playing in a loop at the time of the Crowley's deaths. I did find a youtube playlist of 43 of the song's music videos at . 10 are missing

  • Ray (Tuesday, March 12 24 11:04 pm EDT)

    Yo… @Ken is onto something. Komel could have shot the child.. in some article I read that they BOTH were seemingly better and happier near the end, so does this mean, they both planned this-? Komel didnt have a job at that point and David was pissed about movie stuff.
