Bobby Kent

Deceased Person from United States of America

Bobby Kent (May 12, 1973 – July 15, 1993) was an American who was murdered by seven others, including his best friend, Martin Joseph "Marty" Puccio, Jr. (born March 21, 1973), in Hollywood in South Florida. Kent attended South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida. According to Tim Donnelley, who tried all the conspirators for his murder, one attorney described Kent as "very Eddie Haskell like. Adults saw him one way (polite and charming) while the kids saw him in a completely different way." Marty Puccio was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Hollywood, Florida. He is an Italian-American and was raised Roman Catholic. Kent and Puccio had known each other since third grade, had lived on the same block in Hollywood in Broward County since that time, and were good friends as adults. Bad blood, however, existed between the two. Puccio felt "ill-will and hatred" towards Kent because he would bully and pummel Puccio. Both sets of parents were wary of the friendship as well. Puccio's parents, Martin Sr. and Veronica, were cautious because Marty often returned from being with Kent with bruises or bleeding. Fred Kent thought of Puccio as a wayward slacker who had no future  ( Wikipedia article )
