But now a wealthy beach community is trying to understand a much bigger unknown: What led some of America's most privileged young people to turn on one of their own - a local surfer about to hit the bigtime? It started as just a group of youths out for a night of fun. So how did a fight over a spilled drink end with one of them dead? A wake up call for parents everywhere.
