CHAPEL HILL, NC – Pouring over class notes and practice tests in a seventh consecutive hour of studying for her organic chemistry final, junior pre-med student Carly Futheridge said that she would “kill to set the curve.”
“I’d do anything to get the top score,” she muttered. “Anything.”
“Med schools only want A students,” she said staring through her notebook into a middle distance, her face expressionless. “None of this matters without an A. Have to get everything A. The curve. Only A students. A student. Anything.”
UPDATE: Pre-Med Student Kills to Set Curve
Multiple sources are confirming that, at approximately 5:18 pm today, pre-med student Carly Futheridge murdered UNC sophomore Arjun Kapoor, the top student in her organic chemistry class. Kapoor, who friends and professors say aspired to a career in academic research, was found dead in his bed in Morrison Dormitory, apparently smothered to death by Futheridge, who crept into his unlocked dorm room while he was taking a nap.
Several witnesses described a person matching Futheridge’s description fleeing the scene of the crime toward Davis Library. Following the witnesses’ tips, campus police apprehended Futheridge in a Davis 5th floor cubicle at approximately 6:07 pm.
Futheridge violently resisted arrest, screaming and lunging toward the textbook and notes that lay on her desk as police dragged her away, screaming that she “need[ed] them.”
