Northwest Explorer investigates the death of a 23-year-old, Westyn Hamilton, beaten by the bouncers at New West/ Gotham, a Marana, Ariz. night club. The story tells how the local police chief and his officers were paid about $100,000 to protect the nightclub, and often worked along with the bouncers; the criminal investigators failed to interview key witnesses in the case; and the death was ruled an accident despite the 54 injuries an autopsy discovered on the body.
