Profile Information

Lives in:
BHSC Investigation
Agency structure:
Top issues in your department:
Helping Dave Brock investigate the BHSC fire.
Professional Qualifications:
An outside, but very interested, party who has spent considerable hours reviewing BHSC court documents and meeting with witnesses and fire officials.
A 25 year friend and former co-worker of Dave Brock, who is a BHSC survivor and member of this site. I knew and also worked for D*** Schilling for 5 years, but not at the BHSC. Dave introduced me to Wayne Dammert, another BHSC survivor and author, 15-20 years ago. Dave told me of the "maintenence men" in the Zebra room 25 years ago.

I noticed a great change in Dave after the 30 year BHSC reunion. Dave unexpectedly met other witnesses and became re-aquanted with other ex-employees attending the reunion who recalled seeing the same men that week and the day of the fire. From there Dave had a mission. I was drawn into the investigation because of my relationship with Dave, how important the issues were to him personaly and the incredible story that's still unfolding.
