In the quiet town of Greeley, Colorado, something terrible happened—a crime that took the life of a beloved musician named Scott Sessions. We’re going to explore Scott’s life, what led to his death, and who was responsible for cutting short his happy journey.
Scott Sessions: A Music Man
Scott Sessions, born on March 25, 1966, wasn’t just a trumpet player; he was a lively person who loved making music. He grew up in Greeley, Colorado, and went to Greeley West High School. Later, he followed his love for music to Brigham Young University.
Scott played his trumpet with the Jazz Band Synthesis, traveling all around the United States and Europe. He was not only a musician but also an Eagle Scout and an outdoorsy guy who enjoyed hiking with his dog, “Molly.” Scott also had a painting business in Greeley.
Sadly, his music stopped on February 8, 2020, leaving a gap in the local music scene and the hearts of those who knew him.
Scott Sessions found himself caught up in a complicated situation involving Heather Frank and her ex-boyfriend, Kevin Eastman. Heather and Scott began seeing each other casually, but things turned dark on February 8, 2020, when Scott disappeared.
His bandmates and family were shocked when his body was found on February 10, 2020, in a remote area of the Colorado Rockies. The autopsy showed a horrible fate—his body intentionally burned, wrapped in plastic, and a deep cut in his neck.
End for Heather Frank
A week later, the story continued with the discovery of Heather Frank’s lifeless body, with two gunshot wounds, on the property of Kevin Eastman’s former employer, Troy Bonnell. Investigations revealed the abusive relationship between Frank and Eastman.
Kevin Eastman was arrested soon after at a Kersey gas station. He faced charges of two counts of first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, and tampering with physical evidence.
The Trial and Decision
Even though Eastman denied the charges, he was found guilty of killing both Sessions and Frank in the past year. The court sentenced him to two life terms in prison.
What Happened to Scott’s Trumpet?
In a strange twist of fate, Scott Sessions’ beloved Yamaha trumpet found a new home 500 miles away with his half-sister, Allison Weldon, in Kansas. The trumpet became a connection between siblings who had only recently found each other.
As we remember Scott Sessions, we also think about how important it is to address domestic violence and its impact on people’s lives.
