Crystina Page, the mother of the 20-year-old victim David Page, says she had warned El Paso County Sheriff’s Office that same day about her son’s mental health issues prior to the deadly encounter. Now, she wants local law enforcement to find alternative ways of dealing with mental health crisis interventions.
Marley was a four year old Red Eared Slider turtle. He was David Page's best friend. On September 29 2019, as SWAT responded to a noise complaint at David's home in Monument, Marley was their first casualty, moments before shooting David five times and hitting him three. David and Marley were both dead at the scene.
