The last straw for Daniel came just before the murder, around the time he was planning a romantic anniversary celebration with his girlfriend. Duane saw another opportunity to seduce his young victim.
That Friday when Daniel came over to Duane's house before school, the two talked about the upcoming anniversary. "So all this [anniversary] stuff's going to cost...what?" Daniel says Duane asked.
"$80," Daniel answered.
Then, Daniel says Duane responded. "You know this stuff isn't free, right?"
Daniel says he knew Duane wanted to have sex, and at that moment, he realized that the molestation was not going to stop.
"I just snapped," he says.
