Bully - The True Story Of Marty Puccio And Bobby Kent

Help Donald Semenec

Hi. I created this group to help Donald Semenec. For thise of you who dont know him he was invloved in the Bobby Kent murder. I got tired of seeing webpages and groups for all of the other people invoved in the case and not him. In my opinion he is the one who needs the most help.

Bobby Kent - Wikipedia

Bobby Kent

Bobby Kent was by many accounts, a popular athletic boy. He earned a decent grade point average in school and played sports. Bobby was charming to those around him and naturally attracted attention. His parents, Fred and Farah Kent had high aspirations for him. Fred was self-employed as a stockbroker, and believed that the true American Dream was for one to be their own master; something he wanted for his son and had plans to set Bobby up running his own business once he graduated from college. Bobby, who was an avid car stereo enthusiast and had his own vehicle sound system that was worth several thousand dollars, had told his father that was the type of business he would like to get into.

The Free Marty Puccio Petition at ipetitions

We, the undersigned, believe that Marty Puccio is in full deservance of a clemency hearing, pardon or new trial. We believe that Marty is not a threat to society and that is beneficial for all concerned if we were released from prison.

This is being sent to various lawmakers in Florida.

The Free Donald Semenec Petition At ipetitions

Donald Semenec was given a life sentencestruck for his involvement in the murder of supposed gang leader Bobby Kent. Semenec who has been incarcerated since 1993 was never proven to have a motive. The supposed ringleader of the murder, one of Semenec's co-defendants was given a life sentence, however it was later reduced. This said ringleader has since been released and is leading a normal life, one filled with freedom and empathy. Semenec is currently serving a life sentence along with Marty Puccio and Derek Kaufman. Puccio, the best friend of Bobby Kent dealt the fatal blow which inevitably killed him. Derek Kaufman was a supposed "hitman" hired to aid the inexperienced group of kids in the murder. How is it that Semenec can be serving the same sentence as these two men. In my opinion justice has yet to be served in this case. Donald Semenec deserves a new trial.
The hopes of this petition is to gain 200 signatures. Once and if this happens this petition will be sent to the Florida Law Makers.

Court Documents for Martin Puccio appeal on FindLaw


We have on appeal the judgment and sentence of the trial court imposing the death penalty on Martin Puccio. We have jurisdiction. Art. V, § 3(b)(1), Fla. Const.

Martin Puccio and Bobby Kent had known each other since third grade, had lived on the same block in Broward County since that time, and were good friends as adults. Bad blood, however, existed between the two. Puccio felt "ill-will and hatred" towards Kent because Kent would bully and pummel him. For a few weeks prior to the murder, Kent dated Alice Willis, best friend of Puccio’s girlfriend, Lisa Connelly, and when Willis moved back with her parents in Palm Bay, Florida, Kent said he was going to murder her and smother her baby unless she returned to Broward County to date him. Willis returned and she and Connelly concocted a plan to kill Kent. The women obtained a gun and lured Kent to a rock pit in west Broward but backed out at the last minute. Later that night, Kent and Willis were seen holding hands but then, according to Willis, Kent raped her at her house. The next day, July 15, 1993, a wider circle of friends conspired to kill Kent and again lured him to the rock pit. The following were present: Alice Willis, Donald Semenec, Heather Swallers, Lisa Connelly, Martin Puccio, Derek Dzvirko, and Derek Kaufman. While Willis and Swallers distracted Kent, Semenec stabbed him from behind. Puccio then stabbed him in the abdomen, and when Kent tried to flee, Semenec, Kaufman, and Puccio tackled him and stabbed and beat him. Kaufman delivered the final blow with a weighted baseball bat, and he and Puccio threw the body into a canal.

The Bobby Kent Saga

It is perhaps ironic that Lisa Marie Connelly occasionally picks up her mail at an antique store in Sebring, Fla., called Pieces of the Past.

Almost 14 years ago, Connelly and six other of her friends and acquaintances -- including boyfriend Marty Puccio -- faced prison sentences for the murder of Puccio's best friend, a 20-year-old bully named Bobby Kent.

The reason for a band of suburban kids to commit an act of murder on a whim?

It's the same reason the punk band The Ramones explained why kids sniff glue -- they just wanted something to do.

Connelly, now 32, may be living in the Sebring area.

''I rented an apartment to her, but she left last year,'' said landlord James Lyons, who said he drops off Connelly's mail at the store in Sebring. ``I don't really know her.''

Larry Clark's Bully Brings Brutal Florida Killing To The Screen

Even by South Florida standards, the murder of Bobby Kent was a stunner. The sheer rage behind the crime seemed inordinate, monstrous. And it posed a troubling, unanswerable question: How could outwardly normal kids descend so far into madness without anyone noticing?

On the night of July 14, 1993, Kent, 20, was bludgeoned and stabbed to death at a secluded Weston rock pit by seven acquaintances - one of them Marty Puccio, 19, his best friend since third grade.

Dallas journalist Jim Schutze told the story in a nonfiction book, Bully: A True Story of High School Revenge, a lurid tale of jealousy, abuse and deadly alienation. Naturally, it caught Hollywood's attention. But the grimness of the story, combined with an alarming rise in teenage violence, made it look like "Bully" would never see the screen.

Have I gone too far? Writing to a convicted murderer...

For anyone who has seen Bully, and also read the book, Im curious as to how you feel about the story itself. I recently wrote to Marty Puccio, and am in contact with people who are in contact with him. Have I taken this a little too far? Im kinda wondering now.....hmmm.... this man has my address....what now? Whatcha guys think. According to inside sources, I should be recieveing a letter back from him shortly.
