NBC: Bethesda Mystery: Investigators Probe Site of Fire, Death
News4's Chris Gordon has the latest from the scene of a fire and a death in Bethesda more than two weeks ago. Mysterious tunnels were found.[Note: no written report at link - only video which reveals at end the fire occurred on September 10th. The identities of the survivor and deceased not provided in the video report which creates the potential for links to 9/11 .]
The following article identifies the surviving resident as WUSA9: "He said 26-year-old Daniel Beckwitt lives in the home."
Other recent articles state the surviving victim is 31 years old...not 26. The above link may be mistaken about age due to dated reports of Beckwitt's prior arrest(s).
This link to reddit states link was submitted 4 years prior to post which seems to resolve the difference in age.
WUSA9: "They transported a 31-year-old man to the hospital for smoke inhalation. He is expected to be recover."
DCW50: "According to Montgomery County Fire officials, two young men were inside. One was a 31-year-old who was able to escape and alert firefighters of his friend trapped inside."
Location of fire identified here: 5212 Danbury Road, Bethesda, MD
