More than a year has passed since two UNC students died at off-campus locations, and police from across the county still haven’t figured out the circumstances surrounding their deaths.
David Shannon was a UNC freshman when he was found dead at the Ready Mixed Concrete Plant in Carrboro in the early hours of Oct. 27, 2012.
Carrboro police believe someone on the UNC campus knows what happened the night Shannon died, said Carrboro police spokesman Capt. Chris Atack.

h6(liner mb). Remembering students who died this year
In 2013, UNC lost five of its students:
* Stedman Gage, a junior, died Feb. 22 after inhaling aerosol computer duster. * Laura Rozo, a junior, died April 11 after a two-year battle with cancer. * Julia Nan, a sophomore, died June 13 after being struck by a falling tree during a storm. * Andrew Crabtree, a sophomore, died June 15 after a two-and-a-half-year battle with synovial sarcoma — a rare form of cancer. * Wanda Mcclamb, a junior, died Aug. 4 following complications from a kidney transplant.
Shannon, a pledge in the Chi Phi fraternity, was last seen at a pregame party on McCauley Street.
An autopsy report for Shannon was released in October and shows he had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.22 at the time of his death. Shannon died after falling 30 feet from a piece of machinery at the concrete plant.
