Kurt’s Story, 18, California Kurt never thought he would one day after drinking underage take the life of anyone, let alone, his best friend, but that is just what happened. “I thought it was a one-in-a-million chance, couldn’t happen,” Kurt Evans told a news station. “And, now I’m that one in a million.
