    IL/IA - Dr. Gary Hunninghake faked his own stabbing-investigated for child porn

    Extremely curious. The man was not charged but I'm more than a little concerned with a cover-up by the college and the fact that a man would "fake" a stabbing when confronted with a warrant to check for child porn. This one has an awful lot of strange twists to it.

    Man who faked stabbing here being investigated for child porn

    "A University of Iowa researcher who faked his own stabbing in Chicago last year learned the day before that he was under investigation by campus police for child pornography, according to a police report made public Friday. The Chicago Police report, first obtained by The Daily Iowan, exposed the subject but few other details about an investigation that both Dr. Gary Hunninghake and the university have tried for months to keep secret. Meanwhile, Hunninghake has earned more than $300,000 since being put on paid leave because of the inquiry.

    UI Public Safety announced in November that it had ended a seven-month investigation into Hunninghake, and that local and federal prosecutors had declined to charge him. But until Friday, the university and one of its top researchers had successfully kept any information about the case under wraps, which led to widespread speculation about the subject...."

    and

    "...Hunninghake told police "he was not sure what he was trying to (do) and explained that he was in a strange state of mind when he did this."
