INSIDER EXCLUSIVE “Goes Behind The Headlines” in “Left to die…the real Seth Hanson story” to meet with Stephen Gabrielson who successfully represented Seth Hanson’s family.
On December 8, 2007, Seth Hanson and three of his friends were out for a night of fun leading to a car race and subsequent car accident that killed Seth Hanson. The wind chill temperature that night was -14 degrees below zero. Seth had been thrown from the car… seriously injured…and was lying in the freezing snow and ice. By the time Seth was taken to the hospital his body core temperature had dropped to 75 degrees. Seth’s “so-called friends”were present at the accident scene, on the that freezing night, and just left him there without calling 911
Those witnesses, and so-called friends, Ben Lieffort, Heather Lahammer, and Greg Larson variously claimed that there was no race… or that Seth’s vehicle was far ahead of the Camaro, or that Seth’s vehicle was far behind the Camaro. Instead of calling 911, they called a friend, Andy Kunrath, who drove out to the accident scene. Ben, Greg, and Heather then left the scene, and Andy made the 911 call. Seth was still alive upon arriving at the hospital, but he had been in the freezing snow for nearly an hour. He later died from internal injuries and exposure.
Stephen Gabrielson’s discovery of cell phone records explained why. It showed that the accident likely occurred shortly after 2:00 a.m. The 911 call wasn’t made until around 2:50 a.m., 50 minutes after the accident!
Stephen Gabrielson was able to discover the real story from the hostile and reluctant witnesses and this special Insider Exclusive Investigative Network TV Special tells the story with Steve and Seth’s father, Roger, who worked diligently for three years to help discover the truth.
