Keith Warren, July 31, 1986

The troubling death of Keith Warren on July 31, 1986 is one that will continue to haunt the town of Silver Springs, Maryland. His body was found hung with the feet touching the ground and the tree which held it was quickly destroyed by police. One of the paramedics wrote an affidavit of support of murder because of the bruises he saw on the body which did not support suicide. His body was quickly rushed to a funeral home for embalming without his mother's knowledge. His mother has since died fighting for justice for her son Keith, but Keith's sister Sherri continues to fight for justice for him.

Brushuan Anderson took his life after repeated hazing and bullying by Phillip DeVos, Charles Bruckner, William Fisher, and Stephen Amaral.

Lavena Johnson, July 19, 2005

The Department of Defense released a statement saying that 19-year-old Lavena Johnson committed suicide in her tent, but the injuries on her body and the trail of blood leading to a Haliburton employee's tent tell a different story. On July 19, 2005 Johnson was found dead by gunshot. Her father saw her body at the funeral home and saw injuries that did not support that. An autopsy done revealed that Johnson had suffered a broken nose, black eye, loose teeth, chemical burns on her genitals said to hide evidence of a rape, and a gunshot wound that could not have been done by herself.
