Yesterday, KMOX Radio's Charlie Brennan sat down for a one-on-one interview with us to talk about "Knockout King," a feature story we ran a couple months ago about the violent ritual adopted by St. Louis teenagers involving the sucker-punching of unsuspecting pedestrians for thrills.

In April, 72-year-old Dutchtown resident Hoang Nguyen was sucker-punched by a stranger on his way home from the grocery store. The blow caused Nguyen to drop to the ground and hit his head on the pavement; he died later that day. Three days later, police apprehended 18-year-old Elex Murphy and suggested that the attack was part of a game of Knockout King.

Murphy, who was charged with four crimes, including first-degree murder, has since denied all involvement in the attack. To listen to the interview with Brennan, click the arrow below.
