What's the real story about Carmen winstead?

The truth about Carmen Winstead is that the whole story is an internet meme that was made up in October of 2006 with no basis in truth. The meme tells of a girl, Carmen Winstead, that was pushed by some girls and fell through an open sewer manhole, breaking her neck and dying. When the girls involved lied to police, telling them that she tripped, they got off scot-free, but were later all found dead in the same way as Carmen. The chain-letter emails warn that breaking the chain will cause the same fate.
