Murder of Bobby Kent (basis for the movie "Bully")

Weston, Florida
Bobby Kent (May 12, 1973 - July 15, 1993), an alleged bully, was murdered by seven teenagers, including his best friend, Marty Puccio, in South Florida. He attended South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida where much of the alleged bullying took place.

The murder resulted in a best selling crime book in 1998, Bully: A True Story of High School Revenge written by Jim Schutze. The book was adapted by Zachary Long and Roger Pullis into the 2001 film, Bully. The story was also covered during an A&E Television crime special.

The murder scene is located on the strip of grassland above the traffic circle before the canal. At the time of the murder this area was undeveloped.
