According to the NBC News report, Watkins, now charged with second-degree murder, had called police and explained that he and his boyfriend had gotten into a fight and that Teasley had fallen “asleep.” Police arrived on the scene and discovered Teasley unconscious and not breathing.
So far, it is unknown what could have triggered the discussion, but it is known for sure that it was about Overwatch and its activities on social networks. This incident adds to a string of conversations about video games that ended severely, such as the case of the boy who shot his friend in 2015.
