Authorities say a Kentucky teenager known as a jokester was strangled by a dog lead he put around his neck while playing with friends at the start of summer vacation.
Murphy says friends tried but were unable to cut the metal cable and Conley was pronounced dead at the scene Friday evening.
Conley had just finished his freshman year at Estill County High School hours before his death.
Football coach Mike Jones called him a good kid who was a jokester.
