The dual went to Hossain’s room. As she sat on a corner of his bed, “he asked me if we wanted to do something dangerous,” a lady testified.
She testified that she suspicion during initial he was referring to one of a “adventures” a dual would go on, exploring a city or once articulate all night while sitting on a campus building edge 20 feet off a ground.
