David Crowley, Army Veteran and Gray State Movie Director and Family Found Dead

Independent film producer David Crowley and his family were found dead in their home on January 17, 2015. Many of his followers suspect murder.

(APPLE VALLEY, MN) – On January 19, 2015, Live Free Or Die – All News Pipeline reported the death of screenwriter David Crowley, Komel Crowley, his wife, and 5-year old daughter.

David Crowley, the writer and independent film director of Gray State, was found  dead of gunshot wounds along with his wife and 5-year old daughter by a neighbor on January 17th.  Screenwriter David Crowley, age 29, along with Komel, his 28-year old wife, had not been heard from since Christmas.

Crowley was an independent film producer and writer.  Gray State, his movie trailer on utube, had over one millions views as of today.  The movie trailer cost $6,000.  David Crowley died before he could raise the funds to produce the full feature film.

David Crowley, an Army veteran, said on a Alex Jones interview in 2012 that the film will not portray the military as an evil force but will take place after a societal collapse.  Think FEMA camps, martial law, guillotines, revolution, mind control and you’re in the right ballpark.

There’s no information on whether a treatment and screen play was completed.  Many of his followers believe that he and his family were murdered in cold blood.

Numerous law enforcement agencies are investigating the causes of death, but police have yet to release a statement. They are reportedly treating the death as “suspicious,” notes the Daily Mail.

A Facebook page, Justice for David Crowley of Gray State”  inequitably states that David Crowley and his family were murdered and suggests ways for followers to help with the cause:    

For starters here is what we are looking to do to help Gray State. We are asking all of our followers to do these two things:

1. Share the Gray State and Gray State [sic]: The Rise pages with your friends. Do everything you can to bring this project to light. They need our support more than ever right now. They are working towards a good cause, to expose the rising police state that is a threat to American citizens.

2. Share this page with as many people as you can. Get the word out! David Crowley did not murder his family, nobody is buying their bullcrap story.

We are in contact with a lot of key people who can really make a difference with this, including getting some independent media coverage. We have to all come together and let the team at Gray State know that we are behind them!

A neighbor discovered the bodies after gathering packages that were sitting on the front steps when he looked inside and saw the bodies. The Crowley family had not been seen Christmas.


Who murdered the Crowley family?

The Live Free Or Die – All News Pipeline  story, Gray State Movie Writer/Director Found Dead! Wrote Martial Law – FEMA Camp Movie! Another Watchman Brought Down?” said the murders were done by the New World Order or NWO:

With ‘watchmen’ and US Patriots/Veterans now under what appears to be a well-coordinated assault to silence them, were the deaths of Crowley and his wife and child another such move by a NWO now desperate to continue their long-held plans?

The controversial movie ‘Gray State’ featured a post-collapse America descended into a full-fledged police state with FEMA camps, martial law and Americans rejection of the ‘police state’ en masse, frustrated with government lies and corruption and a movie that many say strayed too close to America’s future reality. Were these deaths REALLY murder suicide or something MUCH more sinister? The 1st video below from xrayultra gives us the story of the death of Crowley and family in more detail while the 2nd video below is the viral ‘official concept trailer #1’ for Gray State. More below videos.

Featured in the trailer are scenes of US military patrolling American streets, cameras in private homes, the introduction of mandatory RFID chips used for identification, tracking and more as well as economic collapse.

The film covers elements of conspiracy about FEMA camps which refer to the militarized police state response to civil unrest including forced detention camps and the liberal use of deadly force against unarmed people.

The film concept was more than 5 years in the making and after going public on Facebook in 2011, a popular trailer was released in August 2012 and now has nearly 1 million views.




David was a Army veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.

David Crowley and Gray State co-producer Danny Mason were interviewed on the Alex Jones Show in September 2012:

    the fact all three died screams “New id creations” for all three and milking the anti-government propaganda the gullible goy gobble up for all it’s worth

  2. jsigur  January 31, 2015 at 10:39 am

    Gray State is a film the government would support as through third tier ops such as Jones, Rudkowsky, Kokesh, and Dice- the government would only kill him if he was a “useful idiot gone wild”!

  3. jsigur  January 31, 2015 at 10:35 am

    the whole thing is a fricking psyop- a go-fund me page is set up two days later- a bunch of 3rd tier ops are the ones interviewed over and over- where are the bodies?

  4. Excalibur  January 25, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Another fantastic expose by Robert O’Dowd – which we should all share far and wide.

  5. Excalibur  January 25, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    Whatever the truth here – I can state with certainty that a few decades ago there is NO WAY that any responsible newspaper or media outlet would have been allowed to make ‘murder/suicide’ assessments of this kind (within a few hours) about the slaying of an entire family – from a news office hundreds of miles away. Neither would the police make any statements about it beyond the obvious facts until a very clear picture came into view. The circumstances of such a group murder would warrant a huge investigation to probe EVERY POSSIBILITY – and the Grey State film connection here is clearly very pertinent. This man has upset those who now own the state – and they are sending a message.

    My assessment is that this once again demonstrates for any that want to see and hear – that our world today has been hijacked – and is now run by gangsters. Those gangsters increasingly are using gangster methods to enforce their grip on the nation, the state and the people themselves.

    On her liniked site, the wife, a dietician, writes about starting her career by correcting the “mental imbalances” of people in her family.

  8. Laura Beyerle  January 22, 2015 at 10:18 am

    No one talks about it on the internet, but a federal law was passed that the government may disseminate false propaganda to the American people. This has been in place for awhile. Take a look. You can find the law if you look. With a law like this, the only premise that should be in everyone’s mind is to believe nothing unless it is proven by verifiable facts, and if the media is only an arm of the government, there is no way you can verify anything unless you are physically present at the place where the event occurs and can personally investigate the facts yourself.

      Old Russian proverb: When the Bear has your leg in its mouth, then you know it’s true.

  9. Laura Beyerle  January 22, 2015 at 9:56 am

    This story is fishy. He was in the military for 5 yrs, a career. The family members didn’t wonder where they (and their grandaughter) were on Christmas? They were dead since Dec. 17 & found on Jan 17, and no family member called police reporting them missing? Yet, the family immediately starts an internet fund after they were found dead. What about their friends? Didn’t the daughter’s school report her missing, or call the police. Crowley’s wife coincidentally leaves her job and goes into business for herself shortly before their death (so there was no one to wonder why she didn’t show up for work?). If they were dead for one month, the dog had no food. He may have gotten water from the toilet, but no man or animal can last that long without food. The neighbors knock on the door and later look in the window, certainly enough time for everyone to lie down on the floor in front of the window. His collaborator, Danny August Mason took down his website and his last twitter statement was in July 2013. Was Crowley rendering some service to the military?

    • NavyBrat  January 23, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      You raise some valid points. It could well be another false flag psy-op. For purposes of control it is in the interests of TPTB for the public to believe in conspiracies large and small. I’ve watched this method being used by parents, teachers and other authority figures since I was a child. The threat of Martial Law is often enough without having to actually impose it. “If you’re not good, you’ll be grounded for a week ….”
      There are some dis-info agents looming large in this affair – Alex Jones being one of them. Never forget that his longtime agent Ari Emanuel, besides being Michael Moore’s agent, is also the brother of Rahm Emanuel, former WH Chief of Staff and current mayor of Chicago. Rahm famously commented: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

    I read an article the other day about this and the author said this man said to him, I am not prone to suicide. The rolling stone reporter that died in that car crash was mentioned. Sad, a good man and Veteran trying to wake up America and shame that we will probably never know the truth about what happened. Look at all the scandals we do know about and nothing gets done about them.

    If somebody suspicious shows up at the door start a phone call with a friend, over a speaker phone, so that any potential invader realizes his actions are being heard remotely… Or use amateur radio, or video conference on your smartphone/laptop… Make sure you have a few back up communication lines secured against jamming. I am pretty sure VT can provide you with some useful security protocols for protecting you and your family…

  13. LightSaber  January 21, 2015 at 4:56 pm

    R.I.P. Very sad.
    But I believe there are means to protect from such attacks using modern technology, firstly by making clear to potential attackers that any assault inside or around home would be automatically recorded and send to friendly custody.

    I also wrote about securing any documents one works on through software versioning-based mechanism distributing sensitive materials withing circle of trusted people. This could be a life policy.

  14. Jack Heart  January 21, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    A lot of what gets said on Veterans Today is the stuff gets people killed when its not said on Veterans Today. Unfortunately those are the brutal facts of life. I hope its casual readers appreciate those facts…

    This is a bitter pill to swallow, where is justice, where is our democracy, long usurped by unglorious bastards, the enemy is within now lets search them out and neutralize the enemy within, no red blooded American should be zapped within his home, city and beloved country, give me my liberty or give me death.

    Police scanner when enteing house at 2:35 – “Rear slider is unlocked, slightly ajar,” in Minnesota cold weather. Very fishy headline in New York newspaper, “Gun-toting Minnesota screenwriter”.

  17. Preston James, Ph.D  January 20, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    This is a very well done article. It’s darn easy for FBI or DHS agents to go to the newspapers with pre-canned stories like this. One can smell them a mile away. they are just to tight with no investigative journalism at all. Remeber, phone calls can be completely morphed for over 20 years so when Div. 5 used sheep-dipped mossadniks, they cover all
    angles first. This smells like your typical Arkenside. Mossadniks trademark, kill the whole family, little kids too to make an example. The ruling cabal is scared sh*tless of militias or this type of movie. You can guess why? Because their whole system is close to collapse and they know it. Besides DHS has been using special hit teams to secretly assassinate Minn. Militia members so we know they do this in the Midwest and Minnesota.

    • Robert O'Dowd  January 21, 2015 at 10:18 am

      Preston, Excellent read on this story. There’s no investigative journalism involved. As we say in Philly, “The fix is in; the horse is juiced.” Wonder if anyone has the balls to run with this film, assuming the script was not destroyed? I hate to see young people like this couple and baby murdered in cold blood. There has to be a special place in hell for the murderers.

    • jsigur  January 31, 2015 at 10:36 am

      the whole thing is a fricking psyop- a go-fund me page is set up two days later- a bunch of 3rd tier ops are the ones interviewed over and over- where are the bodies? The movie was a covert cabal op, Preston-you need to work on that tea leaf readin

  18. Ann  January 20, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Regarding the killers, is there a profile? Are they primarily Americans and/or foreigners, if so what percentage, are they ex or current military, are they selected for psychopathy and or deviance? Is there an estimate of how many? Clearly they are abnormal to commit such atrocities, but yet they can slither undetected amid the populace, so they have cover stories. What motivates them? Money? Political ambition? One would think that their handlers would be somewhat wary of them.

  19. William St. George  January 20, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    For a long time I have envisioned a revolution or civil war in this nation not in the usual fashion like a post modern replay of the one between North and South but rather as one of attrition in which each side would assassinate members of the other. Preston James hints at this in one of his recent articles where he mentions ex intelligence persons taking out the really bad guys. We would probably not hear about this as these deaths would be said due to health or accident or the like. Perhaps those with a gift for being snipers will also come along till no prominent political figure will ever be seen out doors . . . A quiet revolution with no shots heard round the world since silencers would be de rigour. In a way that is what eventually happened in Ireland with the occasional car bomb. I imainge there are a number of Michael Collins waiting in the wings to be called into service. And of course sabatoge would also come into play and be extremely hard to prevent as the gov is so vast.

  20. Ann  January 20, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    Following up on the comment above, the family of Don Pyle seems to have met the same fate as the Grey family. Their Annapolis mansion was consumed by a swiftly moving fire at 3am while Mr. and Mrs. Pyle and 4 of their grandchildren were presumably inside.

    It’s very strange that a house that big would not have several fire alarms. Perhaps our “leaders” are securing their vile plans by silencing those who would expose them.

  21. Eugene Ferguson  January 20, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    Robert according to this the funding was reached awhile ago, something seems a bit smelly here. See this

    • jsigur  January 31, 2015 at 10:37 am

      It was already zionified

  22. pjs  January 20, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    My guess it that someone in Hollywood now has the script. They’ll Zionify it and make millions.

  23. Preston James, Ph.D  January 20, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    A knock at the door right after dinner from a neighbor or supposed friend who has a fishy story to get the door opened. The family is there, their defenses are down because of familiarity with the person coming inside and they all come over to looks at the lost puppy or kitty or something else disarming. Bang, bang, bang. Gun is dropped, no prints because gloves used, door is shut, that’s that. It is customary for state and/or federal agencies to move an undercover operative and “wet-boy” near anyone to gain their trust if they are in a Militia or would be working on such a film. This is common knowledge among FBI and BATF.

    In southern Minnesota there has been a Militia. In the last two years 11 of its 23 members have died under very peculiar circumstances like single car accidents and even an exceedingly strange snow mobile “accident”. All of these folks have most likely been “arkensided” and probably by the incredibly perverted and evil DHS which is known to run such wet-work operations using FBI Div. 5 and is also known to have teams of snipers they depoly at any mass event or protest too as is known from leaked internal documents. Many of these DHS snipers have a track record of at least one hardcore murder and have no problem pulling the trigger when ordered on any dissident, whether they be women or children.

    • Preston James, Ph.D  January 20, 2015 at 4:23 pm

      Of course sometime short acting gas is pumped in, lock is picked, bodies rearranged, fake murder suicide scene set up. Murdering the whole family is a Mossad trademark and some of these wet-boys who have done this inside America are sheep-dipped into FBI Div. 5.

    • Robert O'Dowd  January 20, 2015 at 5:49 pm

      And they pick the Christmas holiday to do their dirty work so your guard is really down. I’m betting that David’s script is completed but a triple murder sends a message to investors, too. Fund this movie and you and your family wind up dead, too.

  24. Allesandro  January 20, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    There have been witness killings related to Sandy Hook, even a State Policeman, many related to 9/11 including Danny Jowenko, media deaths like Hastings, long ago personalities like Phil Schnider, all inconvenient to TPTB. The killing of that Black Hero Cop after the Murrah Bldg. attack, who saw and knew too much, the list is endless. Bin Laden dumped at sea ten years after he died. Actors from false-flags showing up elsewhere.

    Now this tragedy, also William Shanley missing, anyone heard anything on him?

    • jake gittes  January 20, 2015 at 6:42 pm

      Allesandro — this was at end of Fetzer’s article at


      The extremely resourceful Tony Mead, who has been diligent in tracking the missing witnesses at Sandy Hook, has located William Shanley, who has been arrested and incarcerated in New London, allegedly for attempting to commit assault, resisting arrest and breach of the peace. While he may become irritated at times when he is annoyed, William has never struck me as remotely violent or physically aggressive, leading me suspect he was provoked or the event contrived. I have not had the chance to speak with him, but this appears to me to be an inexpensive, relatively effortless but effective means for keeping him from making Court appearances, which will lead to dismissal of his suit. New developments will be posted as more information becomes available.

  25. Grampah  January 20, 2015 at 3:41 pm

    The location is NOT APPLE VALLEY, CA as the dateline of the above article states. It is Apple Valley, Minnesota.

    • Robert O'Dowd  January 20, 2015 at 5:50 pm

      Good catch. Will correct. Thanks.

  26. Robert O'Dowd  January 20, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    It’s a nice, neat package for the Daily Mail and other media to call it a murder-suicide before the autopsies and crime scene evidence are evaluated. In violent deaths, homicide has to ruled out first and that hasn’t be done, yet!. Why would Crowley neglect to shoot the dog? Did the dog tear up the furniture and the other household items or was there a fight with intruders who won the battle, killed the Crowleys and staged a suicide-murder scenario? This has a bad smell. The Gray State is not a film that the government would support, but was this fictional film (only in a script form) enough of a threat to kill three people? Still, I think that Marcellus’ reply to Hamlet is appropriate, “Something is rotten in state of Denmark.”
