    Military charges Marine reservist with murder in death of 19-year-old college lacrosse star

    Military charges Marine reservist with murder after he fatally punched 19-year-old college lacrosse who hit his head on concrete during fight

    • Lance Cpl. Samuel London is facing military charges including murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter 
    • Marine reservist is accused of punching Daniel Hollis, 19, in the face during September 2019 fight in Boston
    • Hollis, a sophomore at Emerson College, suffered severe brain damage after hitting his head on concrete and died four days later 
    • In February, Massachusetts grand jury declined to issue indictments against London
    • NCIS then took over investigation because London was on active duty

    A US Marine reservist has been charged in the death of a 19-year-old college student, who suffered a fatal brain injury during a fight after leaving a party in Boston last year.

    Lance Cpl. Samuel London is facing military charges including murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter and wrongful use of a controlled substance in connection to the September 2019 killing of Emerson College sophomore Daniel Hollis, the Marine Corps confirmed in a statement Monday.

    The charges are ‘merely an accusation and the accused is innocent until proven guilty,’ the statement added.

    The move by the Marine Corps follows a decision by a Massachusetts grand jury in February not to issue indictments against London in the case.

    Hollis was a marketing communications major and a goalie on Emerson’s school’s lacrosse team. 

    He and some friends were leaving an off-campus party in Boston’s Allston section uin the early hours of September 28, 2018, when they were confronted by a group of college-age men on Park Avenue.

    According to a post written by Hollis’ mother, some words were exchanged and a scuffle ensued. During the melee, Hollis was said to have been punched in the face, causing him to hit his head on concrete.

    He suffered severe brain damage and died four days later at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

    The Marine Corps confirmed that a reservist on approved leave in Boston before deployment was identified as a suspect, but no arrests were made at the time.

    ‘As a family, we are incredibly grateful to the NCIS Investigative Team and the Marine Corps prosecuting team for their tireless work and constant communication with our family,’ the family of Hollis said on a website dedicated to his memory. ‘It has been almost 14 months since Dan was attacked outside of his friend’s apartment in Allston, Massachusetts. 

    ‘We miss him every minute of every day. We know his loss is felt far beyond our immediate family and while nothing will bring him back, there is no longer the frustration and despair that the accused would not be called to account for their actions. It may be later than we had hoped, but the justice system is at work.’

    District Attorney Rachael Rollins said in February that the investigation preceding the Suffolk County grand jury’s vote was ‘incredibly thorough and painstakingly detailed,’ but she acknowledged the grand jury ‘has spoken and we respect its findings, however difficult they are to hear.’

    The family said in their statement that they were ‘devastated’ by the grand jury’s decision.

    ‘At that time, we felt that there was no justice for our son, our family, and all those who Dan loved and loved him in return,’ Hollis’ relatives wrote. 

    Then in June, a Boston police detective connected the Hollis family with an agent from NCIS, who informed them that the military was taking over the investigation since London was a Marine Corps reservist on active duty at the time of the attack.   

    He was arraigned on Friday in Quantico, Virginia, and is scheduled to be court-martialed on April 26, 2021 in Louisiana. 

    According to the military, London currently remains assigned to Rifle Company A, 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment located at Fort Devens.
