This happened ages ago, so I don't remember all the details. However, a recent post by Paul D made me think of it. I heard about this story because my friend's wife knew the gentleman who died. Since I don't remember his name, I will just call him Greg. Greg was friends with a young woman; let's call her Tina. He went out to dinner with her because they hadn't hung out in a while, so they went to a diner and caught up. Tina had an ex-boyfriend (let's call him Donny), who was an abusive psycho, hence why he was an ex. Little did either of them know, Donny had followed Tina to the restaurant. When Greg and Tina parted, they followed Greg home. (Donny also had some friends with him.) Donny and company catch up to Greg on his front lawn. Some heated words are exchanged. Greg went in the house. That is probably (in my opinion) the most important part of the story: HE MADE IT INSIDE SAFELY. From what I recall, Donny and friends stayed on Greg's lawn after he had gone inside. Greg headed back outside with a baseball bat and told the crew to leave. Well, someone got the bat away from Greg, and they beat him to death. Those are all the details I had. I never knew any of the people involved, so I cannot say with ANY certainty why Greg went back outside once he was inside, safe and alive. Was it to show Donny and his friends who the alpha male was? Who knows? Why not call the cops? Did he fear the cops would make these guys leave, only for them to come back later and angrier? There is no way to tell. All I know is: if I made it inside the house, that is where I would have stayed. Still, however you look at it, it is sad that the young man had to die because of some psycho's insanely jealous rage. Any thoughts?
