David Santiago, 22, was violently killed at the kind of party you should do your best to keep your teens away from: a rave.
“Basically a rave party is an illegal event with a lot of kids, a lot of underage drinking and a lot drugs,” said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch.
This rave was on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012 at a warehouse near McDowell and 23rd Ave. It lasted into the wee morning hours of Sunday. Just after 1:00 a.m., David walked outside.
“He was attacked by two people,” said Birch, “One hit him in the face. David fell to the ground and the other person began stomping on his head causing such severe trauma that, about 10 days later, David died of his injuries.”
Somebody had to have seen something because there may have been as many as 1,000 people at this rave. That’s 1,000 possible witnesses that may be able tell police why someone would want to hurt David or provide descriptions of the suspects.
