Utah AA Sponsor David Woodrow Brown Murder Victim
Utah AA sponsee Christopher John Wiggins murdered his Sponsor David Woodrow Brown Oct. 15, 2011 after breaking into his home. AA realizes the danger they put members in asking them to do service work by being sponsors to dangerous criminals and mentally unstable individuals. Sometimes the sponsors fit this description as well in which case we have the blind leading the blind.

WEST JORDAN — David Brown had an enlarged heart in every sense. Physically — it ran in his family — and metaphorically.
“I’ve seen David go without lunch to feed someone else,” John Brown said of his brother. “One time, I saw him give his last dollar. … No matter what he was doing, no matter what was going on, if you made a phone call, he’d drop everything to be there.”
When he saw a struggling Christopher John Wiggins, a young man he had once sponsored in Alcoholics Anonymous, he offered him a place at his home.
