The Bizarre Death Of Keith Warren:

Keith Warren (pictured above at a football game) died in Silver Springs, Maryland in 1986, one month away from starting college. Paramedics found Keith in a wooded area behind the family townhouse, hanging from a tree by the neck, bent double with his weight.

After a ‘very’ brief investigation, the authorities concluded that Keith had committed suicide despite the fact that rope was tied around the bigger tree to support the smaller tree, how can a suicide victim tie ropes around two separate trees and hoist themselves up?

Surprisingly, no autopsy was ordered and the body was immediately dispatched to a funeral home ‘without’ the Warren family being notified.

A witness says, before Keith’s death, a car full of suspicious characters were looking for him, the type of individuals Keith did not associate with.  Several days later, another man was desperately looking for Keith.

The Warren family had returned home from an outing, one of the relative’s wanted to see the tree in the back, where Keith was found.  When they arrived at the spot, the tree had been mysteriously cut down without their knowledge.

On Keith’s birthday, his mother received a package, the package contained 5 official looking police photos which showed different angles of Keith hanging by the neck, wearing someone else’s clothing.

The family hired a private investigator; who was instrumental in having the body exhumed.  The Medical Examiner found high levels of TCE (potent chemical found in glue and solvents) in his body.  This chemical is so potent; after digesting, you are dead before you hit the ground.  The Forensic Pathologist stated, “I believe Keith Warren’s death being listed as a suicide is medically not supportable.”

Shortly afterwards, Keith’s mother received a note which said, “Ms. Warren, don’t worry, Mark Findley will be next.”  Findley was a friend of Keith’s.  Findley found out about the threatening note and contacted Keith’s mother, “Ms. Warren, I will be by to see you, I need to unload.”  One month later, before he could visit Ms. Warren, Mark Findley was found dead.   According to police, Findley died accidentally when his bike struck a curve and he was thrown from the bike.

The ambulance crew said the damage to Findley didn’t fit the accident.  The damage to his face looked like someone hit him with a baseball bat.

This case was never reopened and remains closed.
