She's alive! Praise Touchdown Jesus!

Manti and his guido friend created a fake twitter account that was supposed to be Manti's Gf. They stole the pics from some chick in Cali named Reba and made up the cancer / dying story.

Auburn shouldn't be in the SEC after last year, but we're still subjected to your threads.

And you board police crack me up. People post all kinds of shite on this board, including the Chip Kelly news.

fricking mall cops.

quote:

Manti Te'o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.

Nor is there any report of a severe auto accident involving a Lennay Kekua. Background checks turn up nothing. The Stanford registrar's office has no record that a Lennay Kekua ever enrolled. There is no record of her birth in the news. Outside of a few Twitter and Instagram accounts, there's no online evidence that Lennay Kekua ever existed.

The photographs identified as Kekua—in online tributes and on TV news reports—are pictures from the social-media accounts of a 22-year-old California woman who is not named Lennay Kekua. She is not a Stanford graduate; she has not been in a severe car accident; and she does not have leukemia. And she has never met Manti Te'o.


holy shit

I skimmed it for about 10 minutes. Really weird story.

Can someone summarize?

It appears their were no records of this girl by that name. But isn't it possible she had a different legal name than the one she commonly went by?

No, it's even better. They say she isn't even a real person.

Just sent this story to a friend of mine. It blows my mind that someone didn't check to see if the girlfriend was real to begin with.

From what I can tell, they're saying she never existed and her death was imagined for publicity.

I hope this isn't true for the simple fact that a dude who would make this up is f**ked in the head.
