Did you have any friends or classmates who died of unnatural causes (e.g. murder or accident) during your K-12 school years?

A whole family was murdered, a whole family drowned, several car/ dirt bike/ 4wheeler deaths. Some random murdered. There was a lot of students who died while I was in school with them. :(

Not in my grade but in my sister's class she had 2 deaths of classmates.

1. A senior boy fell off a hotel balcony pay to his death while drunk on spring break
2. She was actually classmates & friends with Ali Kemp who was brutally murdered.

The second one made a pretty big media spectacle. Though it was actually after they graduated HS I think between their freshmen & sophomore college years.

Two both in 11th grade. One was drunk and was hit while trying to walk across a highway; the other hung himself, he was very depressed over issues from not being accepted for being gay.

Yep, in August. He was on the front of his friend's car when his friend braked hard and he flew off. Was brain dead for 3 days when his parents took him off life support. I'd just talked to him that same day.

Yes. In high school, one of my classmates was struck by lightening and died. It was pretty shocking to everyone.

I know you didn't say family, but my cousin died when he was 10. He was out riding his bike and somehow lost control. His handlebars didn't have that rubber on there anymore, so it was that sharp, hollow aluminum. The way he fell one side

of the bars punctured his chest and clipped either his heart or lungs. He pulled it out, walked into his house bleeding, asked for a glass of water, vomited, and then died - all in the matter of about one minute. Crazy and sad!

From grade 8 to grade 12: two suicides, one murder, one car accident. Two years after graduation, another classmate died in a car accident.

Two from housefires. One in a tent and one in the house. I believe somewhere killed him badly hurt in a car wreck. I went to a big Seattle high school.

This kid I hated died cause he was in the back of a truck that was in an accident. Speed and alcohol played a factor.

No deaths among my classmates but the school I went to was regionally known for having a lot of suicides. Not much bullying just a lot of kids killing themselves. 3 in my junior year.

One close friend had a heart attack or that's the official message at least, I think she really died of a drug overdose.
One guy I just knew at school crawled on top a train and got electrocuted.

Had a good friend in 5th grade die from sniffing white out. He was one of the reasons they changed the formula from what I was told.

None I can think of. Two from illnesses, one from huffing paint, and one that wasn't really a classmate but was two years ahead of me in school that enlisted after graduation and got killed in the war when I was in my senior year.
