Childhood Edit

Michael was very close with his older brother Tom.

As a kid, he liked to break the family's Golden Rule of no cursing in the house, in order to push the limits.

Mike became friends with Joshua Leonard and they often went out drinking together.

Michael on first day of shooting

Mike, Josh and Heather headed into the Black Hills Forest to visit some of the locations associated with the legend, but none of them ever returned. After ten days and thousands of man-hours of searching, the only piece of evidence found was Josh's car.

The footage of the students' was found a year later. In his last known moments, Mike was searching through an old house for Josh, who was missing the day before. He thought he heard Josh in the basement, and when he went to check, his camera started to shake as if he were in a fight and it fell to the ground. Through Heather's camera, her footage found Mike facing a corner in the basement before her camera fell. Mike's last moments seem to be reminiscent of what Rustin Parr did to
