The skeletal figures Bear a Strong resemblance to people when hit by a car they Emit a shrieking sound something like the scream of a child and turn into grave markers. If people gel a kick out of running Down pedestrians you have to let them said Paul Jacobs director of marketing for Epidy. The Palo Alto. Calif., company that designed and distributes the game this is the sort of Challenge that pricks the per son s mind a Little Jacobs said death race has been distributed nationwide but that it s a Trade secret How Many there Are.

The court approved death penalty Laws in Florida Georgia and Texas but in validated Laws in Louisiana and North Carolina.
