There’s a lasting reminder of that evening: a photo of the two men with their arms around each other, smiling. 

They appeared to be having a great time, but just minutes after that photo was taken, tragedy struck.

One of the men called 911.

The other was pronounced dead at the scene before he could be rushed to the hospital.

He was later identified as Calgary middle school teacher Craig Kelloway.

An autopsy revealed Kelloway was stabbed 37 times.

The question was, how did things turn so badly so quickly?
