4 Students From Same High School Are Found Dead in a Month
The school year in one suburban New York community has started with funerals, fear and frustration.
Four teenagers from Brentwood High School on Long Island have been found dead within the past month, all suspected victims of gang violence.
On Sept. 13, the day before her 16th birthday, Nisa Mickens’ brutally beaten body was found on a tree-lined street in Brentwood. A day later, the beaten body of her lifelong friend, 16-year-old Kayla Cuevas, was discovered in the wooded backyard of a nearby home. The teenagers had been inseparable and shared an interest in basketball.
