Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn? is at once a poignant picture of one family's tragedy, as well as a revelatory inquiry into the murky inner-workings of the American defense establishment. Lt. Wes Van Dorn, a 29-year-old United States Naval Academy graduate and married father of two young sons, died when the helicopter he was piloting crashed off the coast of Virginia during a 2014 training exercise. His wife Nicole sought an explanation for the cause of the disaster, and her efforts spurred an investigation that uncovered a long history of negligence and institutional failings. Produced and directed by Zachary Stauffer.
