The Next Big Story

A high school senior was killed last night in Cincinnati by his younger brother. Story is here. Here's the lede:
A Summit Country Day School senior was beaten to death in his house Tuesday, just 11 days before he was to graduate from high school, and his younger brother has been charged with his killing.

John Warrington, 17, was found dead just after 1 p.m. at his home on Berry Avenue. Police were led to the home by a teenage boy who had been seen washing blood off himself in the Hyde Park Square fountain.

I'm afraid this could be the next big media story. The school that the kids go to - Summit Country Day - is a $16,000+/year school. It's based in Hyde Park which is a toney Cincinnati neighborhood. This is the school and neighborhood that Topher Grace and Erika Christensen went to in the movie Traffic (boy did that piss them off at the time). It's about 10 minutes from my house. Alicia and I like to eat there.

I'm a bit of a class snob. I don't typically like these types of people. They always seemed self-absorbed and haughty. More money than class or brains.

Why do I think there's more to this story?

Keep an eye out.

Stay You.
