the death of emery kauanui

Here's an interesting story on the death of surfer Emery Kauanui Jr., a murder that has rocked the beach town of La Jolla, CA: Death in a seaside paradise. At the center of this tragedy are five young local men who were known for their partying and brawling. They were charged with first-degree murder last summer for following Kauanui home after a minor altercation at a restaurant, jumping him gang-style on the street, and beating him unconscious. The assault resulted in Kauanui hospitalized, his skull fractured, brain bleeding. Days later, he died.
