A 17 year old boy was going out to dinner with 3 of his friends . He was found dead in his car early in the next morning . . . the town ' s coroner had concluded that the boy had died from strangulation. His friends ganged up on him for unexplained reasons and held him down while one of them wrapped his upper legs around the 17 year old's neck and crushed him until he suffocated. These 3 suspects were described as looking like nerds. Well ''nerds'' have been killing people this way since 1981 it's happened 4 times since then, 2 cases happening this decade. My best friend is a stereotypical nerd (and proud) and I don't want to end up like that 17 year old kid.
