Yale University English professor Samuel See promoted his services as a gay escort under the pseudonym “Ryan Cochran,” boasting: “I love sex and being with men. . . . I can get into all kinds of sexual and social situations — just name your pleasure. I’m down to earth, humble, personally generous, and horny a lot of the time.”
In May 2013, the professor married a man named Sunder Ganglani, who served as a Yale drama teaching assistant during the 2011-12 school year. By September, however, See and Ganglani’s split had become so acrimonious that they were both under court order not to contact each other. Professor See was “known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia,” but he died in the New Haven jail at age 34 after being arrested for violating the protection order.
Professor See’s death prompted campus protests for “police accountability,” but it turns out he died of a drug overdose:
“Samuel See died of acute methamphetamine and amphetamine intoxication with recent myocardial infarction,” reports The Courant, citing the medical examiner. ”His death was ruled an accident.” . . .
See had been arrested Nov. 23 after a domestic altercation with his estranged husband. As police attempted to arrest See, he fought with officers and suffered minor injuries. He was found unresponsive in his jail cell the next morning.
Just a violent meth-addicted gay prostitute on the faculty of an elite university. Nothing to see here. Move along.
