Manti Te’o, Victim of Hoax?

A bizarre story today about a Notre Dame football player and the death of his “so called” girlfriend.

Manti Te’o, Notre Dame’s star linebacker and now allegedly the victim of an incredible hoax.

Last September he mourned the death of both his grandmother, and his girlfriend.

He promised her he would not miss a game, and went on to lead the Fighting Irish to a series of victories.

Now, it turns out, the girl did not exist.

Notre Dame launched an investigation in December. And determined in early January, Te’o was the victim of what some call a “sick joke,” but there are still many questioning whether he was involved in that hoax.
