Mr. Griffin is a very stern and disliked high school English teacher. Mark, a psychopath student, in Mr. Griffin’s class, persuaded his classmates Jeff, David, Betsy, and Sue to kidnap Mr. Griffin to scare him into giving high grades for inferior work. The students kidnapped Mr. Griffin, tied him, blindfolded him, drove him to the secluded mountains, and left him there. Their plan soon backfired. Mr. Griffin died of a heart attack.
