Dan Greeley, 71, Passed Away Due to Colon Cancer
Dan Greeley of Belchertown, Massachusetts passed away due to colon cancer on December 16, 2020 at age 71.
Utah police later confiscated from Greeley and Urry’s apartment a safe matching the description of one Becker kept in his bedroom, which Greeley claims establishes their intent to murder.
Early Life and Education
Dan was known for always going the extra mile when it came to helping his family, friends, neighbors and his beloved pup Veda.
Greeley was honored with this recognition, the initial step toward sainthood. Her church recognized her efforts to aid the poor as well as her devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus – one of the most widely practiced Catholic devotions.
On August 1st, Greeley was in Utah with Lee and Urry when a police officer visited their apartment building and located an identical safe to that taken from Becker’s home; later it was pawned in Salt Lake City for $225.00 and other items matching its description were discovered in Salt Lake City police offices.
