The Boosters

While Heather lay unconscious in her hospital bed, the alumni boosters prepared a deal for her.
Hospital bills paid. A full scholarship.
Whatever she wanted.
Just tell the police that it was a mistake. Or an accident.
Daunte Washington, star quarterback and Heisman candidate, her boyfriend, never laid a hand on her.
There were rumors, but nobody could prove a thing.
Nobody would talk. Booster cash buys silence.
The police closed the case.
Daunte won the Heisman, got a huge contract and lots of endorsements.
Heather never woke up.
He paid for her funeral, and they buried the ugly truth.
