VIDEO — Exclusive Interview: Gray State Co-Creator Speaks About David Crowley’s Sudden Death and “Gray State Going Dark For Now”
Jan 27, 2015
Ben Swann interviewed “Gray State” co-creator and actor Danny August Mason to discuss the future of the film in light of the recent deaths of director David Crowley, his wife Komel, and their young daughter.
The deaths of the Crowleys have been ruled by the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office as a murder-suicide.
The medical examiner’s office ruled that the deaths of Komel Crowley and her daughter were homicides, and that the death of David Crowley was a suicide. All three of the Crowleys died from a single gunshot wound to the head, and a handgun was found next to David Crowley.
Apple Valley police Capt. John Bermel said that the medical examiner’s office did not find physical signs of a struggle on the bodies or inside of the home. Bermel also pointed out that the house was intact, although recorded audio of police had stated upon discovery of the bodies that a sliding door in the back of the Crowley’s house had been unlocked and “slightly ajar”. Bermel said “If there was a scuffle, you’d expect to find maybe something broken, maybe something knocked over.”
