|Town of Carrboro: Update on UNC Student David Shannon’s Death|
|Tuesday, October 30, 2012|
The Carrboro Police Department is continuing to investigate the death of David Shannon. While this is an open and active investigation, we are releasing the following additional information regarding the circumstances surrounding Mr. Shannon’s death. Some media reports have suggested that Mr. Shannon’s death is being investigated as a hazing incident. As part of any death investigation, all elements of the case are being examined. Hazing, in light of Mr. Shannon’s fraternity membership and the timing of the conclusion of the pledge process, has been one avenue that this investigation has explored. It is not the primary focus and there is no evidence at this time to suggest that hazing was a factor in Mr. Shannon’s death.

The latest research suggests that for veterans, social support is just as important as medical care. Host Frank Stasio talks with UNC Chapel Hill Associate Professor of Psychiatry Eric Elbogen, about his study showing that vets lacking social and financial stability are more likely to engage in violent behavior than those with posttraumatic stress disorder. Joining the conversation are Pete Tillman, public affairs officer for the Durham VA Medical Center, and Jason Hansman of Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America.
