In the wee hours of the morning on April 15, 2017, Humboldt State University student David Josiah Lawson was murdered at an off-campus party. Hours later Courtney Wagner, a Sacramento State University student, received a call from her friend, another HSU student, who told her about the murder. After searching her local news outlets, to no avail, Courtney decided to cover the story herself for a senior project.

Nearly a year later, with the case still unsolved, Courtney Wagner  spoke with KHSU's Lorna Bryant to discuss her interest in the murder investigation and the documentary project.
