The lights are on
David "Knuckles Dawson" Dreger, an ex-contributor at Rooster Teeth, was found dead recently in Ambleside Park in West Vancouver. Dreger went missing in late May, and his family set up a Facebook group to help assist in the search for him. A message from his family was posted on the page yesterday:
"We are thankful that the prayers for discovery made by everyone during this time have been answered. It is with deep sadness that we must let you all know that David's body was discovered on June 20 near Ambleside Park. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their prayers, support and compassion. David was an exceptional, bright, caring and loving young man. We consider ourselves blessed to have had him in our lives, and are comforted knowing that he is now embraced in the arms of our Lord.
Love, Daryl, LeeAnn and Danielle."
Within Rooster Teeth, Dreger was probably best known for his work on the Achievement Hunters YouTube video series. Dreger was declared missing when his bike and helmet were discovered in Stanley Park. Dreger had previously closed down his Twitter and Xbox Live accounts prior to being declared missing.
Our thoughts and condolences are with the friends and family of David Dreger.

I don't know if this is real or not, but this is a link to his apparent blog containing some disturbing stuff. If this is not from Knuckles Dawson (Even if it says his name), let me know.
This is very sad.
R.I.P. Mr. Greger. Didn't know you, but can't imagine how many gamers appreciated your work. Thanks for your time here on earth.
I hope they find out what happened. It is really strange for him to just disappear. I mean I'll be honest didn't even know the guy left and now he turns up dead. It is really strange for that length of time.
That is freaking terrible! D:
This is really horrible!
This is terrible. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, it must be terrible to have a family member go missing for a month, only to find his dead body in a park. Horrible news whenever somebody dies in the industry.
Met David a couple years ago... this sucks and is very sad news... he was a cool guy and will be missed.
This is very sad. My thoughts are with his family and friends. I'm a huge RT fan and I actually never knew he was missing. Hopefully the RT guys will have some kind of memorial video for him.
Heartbreaking news. My condolences go out to his family and friends.
He closed down his Twitter and Xbox Live Accounts prior to being declared missing. Or someone hacked in and closed them down for him to make it look like suicide. I bet you he was being hacked and black mailed. He probably went to confront the guy. I sure as hell hope the police in his town are honorable. Cuz in Tucson, They don't give a flying rats ass. My advice to the family: Don't let anyone tell you that he took his own life. Investigate for yourself. Any evidence you find is yours. Trust your instincts. Remain Vigilant.
Let me be, the second to say as a huge fan of RT, I'm sorry for his coworkers' loss... :(

Sad story, well wises to the fam
