When the initial autopsy report of his death ruled it as hypothermia, it was likely attributed to drug and alcohol use. His mother explained, “I knew that wasn’t right. So we had to make the hell out of it.”
Pravin’s mother said she had to go the extra mile to get authorities to appoint a special prosecutor and offer a reward for information about what happened to him that night before a proper case was made.
Finally, Gaege Bethunem, a student at Southern Illinois University, was tried for first-degree murder after protection learned he got into a fight with Pravin after the party.
The jury then ruled that Gaege was guilty and should be sentenced to 20 to 60 years in prison.

Pravin’s mother described the day of the sentencing Turn: “The judge read a prepared statement declaring that the charges would be dropped and Gaege would be released.”
She continued, “He started out by saying that the prosecution conducted a perfect trial, there was no wrongdoing, no mistakes by the prosecution, and there was enough evidence for the jury to find Gaege Bethune guilty by his own admission .”
She concluded: “But there was a syntax error and [he] wasn’t sure if the jury was confused… So [he said] “I reverse the verdict of the jury and order a new trial. I release the accused.’”
