LEVI LEE and Bryson Mills arrived on the doorstep of the Daily News last week looking bruised and battered.
Even hard-bitten reporters - their eyes widening - seemed taken aback by the appearance of the two young men.
Their clothes were smudged with blood. Mills gingerly pressed an ice pack to his right eye, which was swollen shut. Lee sported gashes in his lip and head.
But the worst injuries weren't visible.
