Teen Dies During Live Performance
The scene was straight out of a horror movie last weekend: Troubled 19-year-old Kipp Rusty Walker walked on stage at an open mic night, played a weary and foretelling song called, 'Sorry For All the Mess,' and then repeatedly stabbed himself to death with a 6-inch blade.
Audience members cheered and applauded at the realistic performance, unaware that the on-stage suicide was the real deal.
It was only after Walker collapsed on the ground in a pool of blood that the audience's accolades morphed into screams of horror and dismay.
Walker's friends told officials that the teen had planned to kill himself in a public place.
