David Hallman III
Exposure blamed in Denison student’s death
Loved by many, will be missed by all.
David Hallman III, 21, of Erie, was last seen Saturday at 2am at Brews Cafe where bar surveillance video shows he left without a coat.
He wasn't found until after 10:30pm Saturday night.
Police think Hallman became disoriented after leaving the bar and ended up nearly a mile away, in front of a garage on Parsons Village Drive.
An intensive door-to-door search occured during much of the day, when the temperatures ranged from a low of 4 to a high of 22. The search started for the missing young man when the student's father said his son missed an appointment at noon and couldn't be reached by his cell phone.
Granville Police and Denison University security organized a search and tracked his cell phone as security looked all over campus for him.
Hours later, two women found his body in the snow.
No foul play is suspected.
Hallman's cause of death is still under investigation, but police suspect alcohol is a factor.
