Altman died on November 1st after attending a Halloween rave in Seattle. Although there have been rumors of a drug overdose, his death is believed to be accidental. More information is available from George Fox University’s student paper, The Crescent, here.

Moore died on November 15th. He was stabbed outside of a 7-Eleven in McMinville, Ore. The reason for the stabbing remain unclear. The assailant, Joventino Bermudez Arenas, also died from injuries related to the murder. More information is available in The Linfield Review here. The Review has also published a photo gallery of Moore.

Sengoba died on November 9th. His death appears to be a suicide. More information is available in The Whitworthian here.
