Jack Brown

Age / Year / Position: 19 / sophomore / power forward.
Address: 242 Kinard Hall. Hometown: Indianapolis, Indiana

Comments: Jack said he really admired Kevin, and found the fact that he managed to play ball while enduring painful insulin shots daily quite impressive.

Though he never found the time to socialize with Kevin outside of class or away from the team, he still believed his teammates liked Kevin. He could not think of any person who would want to do Kevin harm, let alone kill him.

He also said that he had heard that someone plagiarized Kevin's work and that Kevin had endured a lot of grief over it.

Jack said he last saw Kevin at practice on Thursday. He added that he was with his girlfriend the weekend Kevin disappeared.

  • Are they all lying except Jason or is Jason the one lying?? Hmmmm!

  • after finding out that kevin did not barrow from Jason and Jason did not work i get teh feelings that the Jeliousy and tesnion was much greater than what was orginaly anticipated.

    all this time Kevin never barrowed or owed Jason

  • So. heres my thoughts. jason has a reason to want to get rid off kevin, as he took an athletic scholarshiop that 'shouyld have rightfully been his' and he wants people to not like kevin so he can make himself feel better. He is physcologically making himself believe that others hated kevin to make himself feel better about not beinng a point guard. It also explasins his reasons for thinking kevin cheated the system!

  • Jason seems to be really jealous of Kevin.
