I was so enamored when I first opened this book. It is a true story about a guy who was found at the bottom of a stairwell at IUP. IUP is not that far from me but still an important college, being a WVU fan and alumni that was hard to say. Supposedly Jack Alan Davis, Jr drank too much alcohol and choked on his vomit. Typical cover story for a kid that was in college, but the coroner stated that before the blood tests were even back. Strange? Well the events and discoveries Marlene Gentilcore lays out for the reader get even more intense. As with any fraternity, if you went to WVU/CalU/IUP, you know the main thing is going to Frat row and to the parties. I remember when we were at WVU and the pranks, dares, and competitions that they had to do. They varied by severity from frat to frat, like jumping off the roof or chugging a ton of beer. Jack joined a frat, but that frat lost it's charter and were kicked off campus for fighting. Did the frat have something to do with it? Was it a prank/dare gone wrong? This was an honest to goodness amazing book. I am taking it to Jamaica with us and sharing it with others. I think the more this story gets out, maybe just maybe someone will know something. When Unsolved Mysteries aired the segment regarding Jack, callers responded in masses with information, all sounding eerily similar. It is an amazing story, yet awful it happened. It is another dagger added into the Fraternity scene that makes it sketchy, especially with their "Code of Silence." If you happen to have information regarding this case, please contact the PA State Police or your local state police.
