But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper."
Erm, that's because she was registered under her real name, Lennay Marie Wochinski. Lennay Marie Kekua was her professional name.
This article is too bizarre. Too long also, can i get a TL/DR. What happened to this kid after everyone found out. Also why the hell did he make this shit up? Or was he just a crazy mormon?
He said some of the last words his "girlfriend" told him before she died was..
"Babe, if anything happens to me, you promise that you'll stay there and you'll play and you'll honor me through the way you play."
So he just made that up? It does sound badly contrived, like some bad tv movie special shit. If i was going to die, the last thing i would tell my mate is to fuck everything and go on playing sports. Who IRL would say something like that. You only hear that garbage in movies.
