An Ohio State University student identified only as AJ has found himself the subject of a public humiliation after texts, which show him attempting to cheat on his girlfriend, were posted on social media.
According to The Daily Mail, another student spotted the interaction and shared a picture of the text exchange on the campus’s public channel, The Buckeye Snap. Only a few hours later, the image had made its way to Twitter, prompting responses from users around the world proclaiming “F*** AJ.” Snaps poured in from the top of Mount Everest, Canada, South Korea and New York City.
AJ was tracked down and his full name was eventually shared by the original poster to avoid implicating other men named AJ, leading to his various other social media accounts being widely shared. People also began sharing images of the offending AJ with his girlfriend, who was

A college freshman says he survived a 60-hour stay inside a locked Indiana cave by licking the wall.
Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar, 19, was on a spelunking trip with 12 others from the school’s caving club to Sullivan Cave, located 10 miles away from Bloomington. At some point in the exploration of the cave, Cavar separated from the group. According to CBS News, club members had padlocked the cave’s gate. Because there was no cell phone signal, the teen reportedly screamed for hours, hoping that somebody on nearby road might hear him.
“It took me a little while to wrangle my emotions and sort of approach things analytically, sensibly, to come up with a game plan to survive,” Cavar said Thursday.
He was rescued on Tuesday. He attempted to pick the padlock with a paper clip, with no success. To survive, he used energy bar wrappers to collect moisture and the

A British law student vacationing in Ibiza died after five bags of ecstasy exploded in her stomach, the New York Post reported.
Rebecca Brock, 18, was discovered next to a pool of blood in a hotel room on the infamous Spanish island.
The amount of ecstasy in her system was double the level of a lethal dose, police stated.
Brock’s mother, Margarita Brock, said that she believed her daughter was forced to be a drug mule after investigators found five plastic bags in her stomach.
“Spanish authorities say five bags were found which were wrapped with elastic bands,” Brock said, according to the Post. “They said it would probably have been four hours before something happened.”
Brock said her daughter had tried cocaine in the past, but she hadn’t liked it. “She was very clear about what she let into her body and what she didn’t,” Brock said.
She thinks this is why her daughter must

A former high school teacher is accused of having a long-term sexual relationship with a teenage boy she met when he was in middle school.
According to News 5, 36-year-old Laura Lynn Cross had a three-year relationship with a student she met when she was his eighth grade English teacher. She has since had his child.
The teen’s father says he had concerns about the former Buchtel High School teacher and told both school and police authorities back in 2012. No charges were filed.
Cross apparently even convinced the teen’s mother, who had custody, to allow the teen to move in with her through a court-approved, partial-parental custody arrangement. The teacher apparently positioned herself as a mentor to the teen.
“First of all, she’s a schoolteacher,” said the father. “To get aroused by a child basically you have to be a sick individual.”
Cross did resign from her teaching position in January 2015.

An Oklahoma City federal judge has awarded $1 million in damages to a teenage boy who was raped by his middle school teacher, according to The Oklahoman newspaper.
Jennifer Caswell, 31, was sentenced to 15 years in prison, five of which were suspended, after pleading guilty to six counts of second-degree rape, child enticement and forcible sodomy in June 2015.
In his judgment, U.S. District Judge Robin J. Cauthron wrote that following the incident, which garnered national headlines after Caswell appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show, the victim experienced “depression, isolation, and self-blame for the events that transpired.”
The boy and his father sued Caswell and the Hollis Oklahoma school district in 2015 due to the boy’s emotional duress and in order to bring attention to the plight of sexual abuse by teachers, according to their attorney Bob Wyatt.
Following the judgment, Wyatt said, “”We are pleased that the judge
