Muddy Gray

It's one of those high school things -- he says, she says, and nobody really says what happened. See, Clinton Cole was in the area. For all we know, he did it. Daria Bickell may be slow, but she's fast enough to say she saw something. Everyone knows she doesn't lie. The bottom line is, Alex Crusan, the HIV-positive kid that everyone knows Clinton Cole hates is in the hospital, and somebody beat the heck out of his little car - and his windshield - with a baseball bat.

But who?

And, how'd Alex get HIV, anyway?
Is he really 'innocent' like he wants everybody to believe?
What does that mean?
