Through the Cracks: A stranger, a police shooting, and a rural town’s silence (Part 2)

The Colorado Independent: Most everyone in Rangely heard within a day or two there had been a police chase and some guy had been killed.

Chris Wills knew more details than most because an investigator had come to question her about her tenant Daniel Pierce and because Pierce’s van had been towed to Wild Willie’s Storage, Wills’ business. 

She went to the townhome Pierce rented from her and found on the kitchen counter a calendar with two notes jotted in marker. “The Ends” reads the note on Dec. 5. The one on Dec. 9 reads “Over Forever!”

Pierce died on the 10th.
