Think I'll just skip my high school reunion...
A week and a half or so ago my wife text messaged me asking me to look up any news articles on a certain name of a childhood acquaintance of hers. Turns out her childhood acquaintance was the girlfriend of a guy I knew in high school, and the two of them allegedly hired a hit-man for - get this - $250 to kill his estranged pregnant wife. At this point it looks like all three involved are going down hard. When i heard the story, neither the fact that he was involved in a murder, nor the fact that he hired someone to do his dirty work for him was a surprise.
Just this morning I found out that another guy I went to high school with, but didn't really know, was murdered at the end of last month. In addition to that, yet another guy I knew from high school and his girlfriend allegedly killed his great-aunt, with whom he was living at the time. The pair were found in the same house as her dead body, naked and unconscious, apparently having made a pact to commit suicide after the deed. They failed and are under lock and key. He's apparently not cooperating but she's singing like a songbird.
Yeah, think I'll be skipping that reunion. Just in case they haven't all weeded themselves out by then.
