Recently, studies of excited nuclear states of beryllium have found a 6.8σ deviation in the angular distribution of internal pair created electrons. These deviations are consistent with the emission of a new 17 MeV state. We examine characterize and examine such a state in the context of dark photons and present upcoming experimental checks of this anomaly
