A fourth commented: "So #WhyDidYouKillMe was really good... came for the revenge gimmick, stayed for the deep examination of the cycle and brotherhoods of poverty, crime and violence too many young guys get trapped in, 'we lived the fast life, did things I can't even condone for that we get nightmares'."

Crystal Theobold was killed in 2006 aged 24 in her hometown in Southern California. At the time, her family believed that a gang named Riverside were responsible and created a fake MySpace account to seek out those they suspected.
