" The facts are as follow:

-On February 16,2002 Lance Corporal Kyle Simmons,75th Ranger Regiment was on medical leave after sustaining severe injuries during an IED blast in deployment in Afghanistan, pending his discharge. LCpl Simmons found himself the bystander to a failed armored truck heist turned into a building siege, during which he then became the active participant in what the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security still classifies as one of the most deadly use-of-force situations in the last 20 years.

Varied works of fiction and non-fiction, have been borne out of the this podcast series, i hope to explore the life and aftermath of LCpl Simmons and how one day of his life dragged over the next two decades." *Daniel Carlyle, Dark World podcast.*

One of those names that still crops up in pop culture from time to time, Simmons is half urban legend, half cautionary tale. It´s hard to separate the man from the persona, and he´d be hard pressed to define himself, spending the last half of his life seeking privacy and anonymity in a world where it´s become an ever rarer commodity.
