I think that whole segment, from beginniing to end, is freaky. From the mysterious note to the numbers drawn in the sand. What also struck me as odd is why did he leave is expensive Rolex watch on the ground? I think the watch was found next to a pyramid of rocks. Very, very strange.

Just got through watching this segment, I don't think I'd ever seen it before.

One theory that immediately popped into my head was the possibility that David was under the influence of some kind of drug(s) and that this led to his odd and disoriented behavior. Now, I'm not trying to paint all New Age followers as LSD-dropping hippies, but I do wonder if he hadn't taken some kind of hallucinogenic to aid him in his "vision quest". Peyote, perhaps?

I've never experimented with hallucinogens, but I've certainly heard stories of people experiencing "bad trips" while using them. Perhaps that is what happened to David, and he didn't even really know what he was doing when he wandered off into the desert.

True, he could've been high on something. A witness observed him talking to himself. But maybe he was the type of person that spoke to himself, I don't know. Another witness had asked him if he needed a ride and observed that he was wearing shorts, which he thought was strange because it was cold out. All that odd behavior may indicate that he was under the influence of a hallucinogent. We may never know.

"I AM THE POWER! I AM THE POWER!"

I never thought of the hallocenogenic drug/peyote angle, ms_bates. That makes a lot of sense to me.

Oh yeah!! I forgot he said that, totally weird! And all those hand motions. The music was freaky when he was walking over those railroad tracks.

That music is scary--there's all these weird spacey sounds in it. I turn it down so I can't hear it most of the time. I've seen the segment so many times I already know when it's coming, and when it's over. I also get creeped out when they show that photo of him and zoom in on his face, all the while with that music playing. I don't even like that first picture they show of him in a suit at the beginning.

This is an intriguing case because of the clues, but I think it's pretty clear that he didn't meet with foul play and died out in the desert by himself. The clues he left behind indicate to me (just a guess) that he was on a "spiritual journey" and shedding his past and his reliance on material things. The numbers in the dirt seemed like he was trying to "free himself" of two numbers he used to think were so important (his football jersey number and the wall street sequence), effectively leaving them behind on his quest. He also "shed" his Rolex on the same path.

"The WORD is in the safe" strikes me as a reference to money being "holy", and the "you take your chances" bit as David's way of saying he's finally gonna go on his journey, no matter the consequences. I have no idea what the knives thing is about. Maybe it's some sort of in joke.

It occurred to me that David may have had a brain tumor. His behavior and personality changed suddenly and drastically. I agree that drugs are a strong possibility, but I also see a tumor as an option.

The note freaked me out too. I wrote it down and tried to figure out if it was a message written in code, but I'm not good at those things.

"WORD" written all in capital letters, seems to refer to the word of God, so I agree that part is an editorial about people thinking they can find the meaning of life in money.

His story makes me sad.

"they think the WORD is in the safe. six knives in Rob's room. you's buys you's tea's and you's takes you's chances. Halloween."

they think the WORD is in the safe ... could be folks think money can buy happiness, similar to that.

six knives in Rob's room ... cannot speculate about the name, can say six knives could be six senses. See, hear, smell, taste, touch. Then add the sixth sense, psychic. Those are what we perceive this existence by. Some that sixth sense. Those can fool us because we believe or disbelieve of that. What we believe or disbelieve can stab us in the back, because again we cannot see behind us kind of thing, and, what we believe to disbelieve again of those senses, etc.

you's buys you's tea's and you's takes you's chances ... if a person of a belief/disbelief makes of that what to think what is is, what is not, is not, or the mix of that, then you get what you pay for. It's not I don't know. It's what I think reality is, or is not. So if I believe in something, something happens to opposite of that, well then I got what I paid for, for my belief. Took that chance, found myself maybe in peril of that choice of risk to believe, or the not of it. Whatever direction that took me.

the Beast ... don't know, maybe he wanted truth of evil in this reality looking for that. Or simply finding something to truth of what is this cause of hurt, kill, and destroy going on with choices folks live here this existence doing what folks do. Maybe this Beast is that cause, he went to find that, met that fate the way David Stone did.

"The Beast", as to my understanding, is all the evil, negative energy that's within us all. David set out on that vision quest to "conquer his demons" as a way to become a stronger, wiser, and spiritually better human being. I don't know what all those weird symbols were that he left behind, but ultimately that's what he was doing. It's extremely possible he was under the influence of something while doing this.

As for what happened to him, I think he might of gotten a ride from someone out on the highway and was dropped off on another portion of the highway and went back out into the desert where he most likely died to the elements.

All the hallmarks of a satanic cult.

I think he was on a quest to find Jim Morrison. Break on through the the other side, if you will.

He probably became delirious after a day or two without people around him and obviously without food/water. I don't think he ever left the desert.
