This happened almost exactly a decade ago, so excuse me if I get some of the details wrong.
I overheard a couple of people talking about somebody I assumed was a mutual acquaintance who had died very recently.
Person A: Y'know, this sounds like that time she "died" seven years ago.
Person B: Yeah, I know.
A: And that time she got shot on...I forget, that one island?
B: Yeah, but she's definitely dead.
A: Wow. What happened?
B: Okay, so, apparently, she was been working for this company that was doing some shady s@#$, maybe government-sponsored, I don't remember.
B: So she and some of her coworkers got sick of it and quit, and then started going against the company, getting involved in all this environmentalist stuff, helping natives, you know.
A: Native Americans, you mean?
B: Huh? No, I don't think so. Anyway, her friends are doing the real hardcore stuff, really trying to stick it to the man here, and she's--well, I think she was their driver? She got her friends from place to place and all.
A: Cool. So what happened? Car crash?
B: No! What happened, is she was helping out her friends, you know, speeding around, absolutely flying, and then her old boss?
B: F@#&in' shoots her.
A: Holy s@#$, no way!
B: Yeah, I know! I guess he, like, had killed one of her coworkers before? But man, I couldn't believe it.
A: What happened to the boss?
B: I think he died, maybe one of her friends killed him?
A: S@#$, man.
I had to leave then, but still wondered about them.
Who were they talking about?
