    Bullying leads to murder

    Medina man haunted by childhood tragedy shares his experience in hopes of saving someone else's life


    The boys were fed up with the bully. He was a head taller than either of them and a master of intimidation. Michael forced them to do his chores and found it entertaining to give them a good wallop now and then. So on a warm summer morning in 1946, Donald and Jimmy lured the 11-year-old to a pond.

    They watched as he squatted alongside the shore and used his knife to carve a live turtle out of its shell. As he leaned in to get a closer look at his gruesome dissection, one of the boys hit him over the head with a club. Again, again and again, until Michael's heart stopped beating.

    I don't imagine they knew in 1946 that animal cruelty was a precursor to other violent crimes.
