Disturbing details about the last moments of a Minnesota man who shot his wife and child before turning the gun on himself have surfaced one year after the killings. The bodies of 29-year-old Twin Cities screenwriter David Crowley, his wife Komel and their 5-year-old Raniya were discovered in their suburban home last January.
Those around the family were stunned by the tragedy, though relatives and neighbors said they hadn’t seen from them over the holidays and the execution-style deaths are thought to have occurred the day after Christmas.

Conspiracy websites warning of a "New World Order" latched onto the Crowley’s death last year, calling it suspicious because the father was working on a movie about Federal Emergency Management Agency troops taking over the country by force.
Police denied that any intruders entered the home to kill the family, and Apple Valley Police Chief Jon Rechtzigel said that after a year-long investigation authorities believe that the father “snapped.”
A police report obtained by the Pioneer Press shares new insight into what occurred inside the house, where the shooter is thought to have written “Allahu Akbar” in his wife’s blood on the wall.

Beauty Komel Crowley met her husband when he was serving with the Army in Texas, was raised Muslim in Pakistan and converted to Christianity for her marriage.
In the living room of the home they shared, a Quran was left open to a page about forgiving the dead for the three weeks before the family's bodies were seen by concerned neighbors through the windows.
Rechtzigel told the Press that the actions appeared to be a “last little shot by him, a sarcastic thing aimed at (Komel’s) Muslim past.”

Other clues found in the house include the screenwriter saying, “I have loved you all with all of my heart” in a TextEdit note on his computer, and a note telling investigators to look at a documentary he was making on the device.
“The Rise” appeared to accompany his feature film project “Gray State,” an apocalyptic government takeover movie he had worked on obsessively for years.
“It almost embodied him. Almost to the extent to where it would dictate a lot of his thoughts and ideas and outlook in reality,” co-producer Danny Mason told Fox 9.

Investigators said that a deal to get the flick made fizzled before the holiday season violence, and Crowley’s business teaching actors how to use weapons for film also reportedly closed.
Though Komel provided money for the family from work as a dietician, friends have pointed to the financial stress for Crowley, as well as possible undiagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder from time serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The screenwriter had 10 guns in his home, purchased legally, though he is believed to have spent most of his time on the computer.
Police said Crowley also may have tried to kill the family dog, though the animal survived and scavenged from its owners’ bodies before they were found.
The David Crowley Murder, images found in David's movie trailer, the rip images,start at 13 minute, this is what our team did, we downloaded David Crowley's Movie Trailer, and his propaganda videos to steam roll his work into the media.
We slowed down his video, and found some stunning images that the police over looked.
David Crowley' Murder, is now listed by our network as a murder.
Fact 1, the news media and the police used Quran (القرآن الكريم ) as a religious weapon to discredit David Crowley.
Those hole come from a gun being next to the book, the blood pattern, shows the book was used to muffle the gun shot...
Fact 2, The Fox 9 News and the police did not even share that David Crowley also had the Christian Bible, marked, how to love your wife.
Fact 3, David Crowley was a activist, he used this to gain media attention, and was using the internet to track fema camps. This was nothing new, a lot of people do this.
Facts 4, The foot prints, none seen in the snow, so, big deal, the crime took place 15 days before the bodies were found.
Fact 5, The crime scene was altered, where it was stated he wrote with his wife's blood on the wall. The issue is the crime scene was changed. We will be creating a social media forum, as well as a News Release, with the images.
If you find one lie, then anther, and yet again another, it is clear the News Media lied as well as the police did lie. Plus they failed to also share he was under investigation by the feds.
David Crowley's movie "Grey State", was a success, it was out side media forum pressures, that was forced into play against him, but he was not a murderer.
Fact 6, David Crowley was building a Constitutional Militia Forum, even if he was not fully aware this could get him killed, doing so in public.
If Fox 9 News wants to go heads up against our network team, it would be welcomed.
