Statesville is about a 15 minute car ride from where I live and I have no reason to suspect this woman is lying. She claims the family did not receive news of his death until well over 24 hours after the event took place...she also said the family is suspicious of the "official" story and thinks some of the casualties may have been from friendly fire so to speak.
The only thing I can confirm at this point is the high school the victim attended is indeed a real operating school, West Iredell High. I realize this is all hear say and without facts will not hold up to the scrutiny of this forum nor should it. What if anything should I be looking for given my close proximity to the victim's home town? I will post the obituary once it's released and should be able to verify the funeral home.
Unfortunately, the very strength of a strong lie (essentially, when you get down to it, the effortless work of very deceitful people) is that it is not detected when questioned directly. That is why police interrogations are even necessary. People will convince themselves
in order to convince others. So, unfortunately, and no offense, your credulity is not evidence that your coworker is telling the truth. You can feel free to doubt me. In any case, that's not so important since the coworker is just an anecdotal barrier to a direct investigation: did the actual victim exist? If they did, what is that victim's history?
this coworker is telling the truth, you don't really need to talk to them about it anyway except to get them to confirm information. There is no reason not to test suspicious information with them once you've first boned up.
As Ataraxia says, we go directly to the source as much as possible. Facebook isn't really much, since there are so many fake profiles and empty accounts there, and we've seen plenty of PsyOp strangeness where things appear and disappear to coincide with an event, but that would at least be a start.
Secondly, as soon as red flags start appearing (and they just might) you can bet the media will not expose them. So, at that point, you could certainly talk about all the ostensible connections. It's fine to start with a High School. Is the school associated with military families? We really need to go to the "usual suspects" when trying to find culprits.
At this point, anything less than details and more details, would be kind of unhelpful.
This kind of joint sentence in particular:

... seems like a rather weirdly blasé way of mixing an irrefutable statement with a statement of credence. What does one have to do with the other? "15 minutes away" can be a fact, but saying you have no reason to suspect this person is lying is only an opinion that stands by the third- (fourth-? fifth-?) person story.
The point is, let's go to the source and figure out if anyone is really so informed as they may claim. What does "knowing well" mean, anyway? I've heard that phrase used before during PsyOp events like this, and when the questions start, it turns out these best friends didn't know each other at all, and actually maybe the storyteller just sorta possibly saw him in a back yard when squinting one time. Possibly.
Finally, knowing a family
well is rather a large statement, isn't it? To what extent does someone know their own family, let alone an entire family of someone else? And knowing the family means someone knows the ins and outs of all their relationships? Their comings and goings?
People are excited to be a part of a big story.
