SPOKANE, Wash. - On October 10, 2014, West Valley High School Senior Jeremy McSpadden was killed when he was run over by a bus while working as a zombie actor at The Incredible Corn Maze in Hauser, Idaho. 

Witnesses said McSpadden was dressed as a zombie when he emerged from his hiding place and ran towards the "Zombie Slayer Paintball Bus" attraction. According to witnesses, McSpadden tripped and fell in front of the rear tires and was run over. McSpadden died as a result. 

Jeremy's death has shook the entire community, his family, and his friends. On Wednesday, 5 of Jeremy's closest friends, and his twin sister sat down and spoke to KHQ's Gabe Cohen about Jeremy and the impact he left on their lives. 

Jeremy's friends, collectively referred to themselves as "The Rugrats," after the popular Nickelodeon show, shared their memories of Jeremy and even showed off their new, permanent tribute to McSpadden. After Jeremy's death, the five friends got the tattoo that Jeremy always wanted on their index fingers: lightsabers from Star Wars.

The Incredible Corn Maze announced earlier in the week that the "Zombie Slayer Paintball Bus" would not reopen following McSpadden's death. The corn maze however is planning to reopen on Friday. 

No criminal charges are expected to be filed, but the investigation into the incident continues.
