Yale assistant professor overdoses

Medical examiners revealed
Monday that 34-year-old Samuel
See, an assistant professor of Eng-
lish and American Studies at Yale
University, died of a heart attack
induced by an accidental over-
dose of acute methamphetamine
and amphetamine, Yale Daily
News reported.
See was found dead in jail last
November after a domestic dis-
pute with his husband, Sunder
Ganglani. The two men reported-
ly had protective orders against
one another, and both were
sent to jail when police discov-
ered Ganglani at See's home on
November 23rd. The New Haven
Police Department stated that
See resisted arrest, fell and was
cut above his left eye.

See received treatment for the
injury at Yale-New Haven Hospi-
tal and was detained immediately
after. He was found unresponsive
in his cell at 6 a.m. the next day.
Students and faculty members
interviewed were unaware of
See's drug use, though two sourc-
es knew of his ill health. Katie
Trumpener, an English professor,
said See once told her he was HIV
positive. Lindsey Uniat, a student
and advisee of See's, said See had
referenced having health issues
before, though he described them
as non-life-threatening.
Man discovered living in
Duke University's Bryan Center
Duke University police arrest-

ed a man Monday after a faculty
member found him living in the
Bryan Center, a central student
affairs building on campus, The
Chronicle reported.
The man was found sleeping
in the Religious Life office locat-
ed in the building's basement.
Chief of Police John Dailey
said the college-aged male was
arrested for breaking and enter-
ing and theft. He reportedly stole
several items, including an iPad
and a laptop. Duke faculty also
suspects the man is linked to the
theft of numerous previously sto-
len items.

"When they were caught,
they were beaten, but after
we brought them to the build-
ing, we did not let anyone beat
them," said Odeh, adding that
the captives were given water
and bandages for their wounds.
Odeh said the settlers
involved in the attack on the
Qusra farmers were in their late
teens and 20s.
The military said the chain of
events apparently began after
Israeli authorities removed an
illegally built structure in Esh
Kodesh, a rogue settlement in
the area.
In recent years, militant set-
tlers have often responded to
any attempts by the Israeli mili-
tary to remove parts of dozens
of rogue settlements, or out-
posts, by attacking Palestinians
and their property.
The tactic, begun in 2008, is
known as "price tag."
Villages in the area have
repeatedly come under attack
by militant settlers, said Odeh,
adding that assailants also set
fire to four area mosques in the
last three years.
