Hugo Scheckter GWU, 20, is self described as having “stunning good looks and fantastic dress sense” and according to Digitallife is a “wise-cracking soccer and cricket-playing” student. Our investigative reporters have found NO evidence to support these claims but Scheckter, as President of the George Washington University Cricket Club came to the 2010 American College Cricket Spring Break Championship.
Later in the year Hugo was spotted in the pits at the Indianapolis 500, the British Barbeque Championship (!) and the soccer World Cup in South Africa.
Quickly developing a Forest Gump-like renown, Hugo’s fellow students in American College Cricket and George Washington University have been wondering where he’ll turn up next – and its been in the Washington Post and on Fox TV news !
Along the way Hugo got elected President of the GW Soccer Club, and ran for the student Senate. He’s also now the Managing Editor of “The GW Patriot” a school paper, and President of Club Sports at GWU .
However recently someone stole his iPad, his laptop and cash from his dorm. The $ 500 cash Hugo had earned as a soccer Coach. Hugo then did the modern day version of a cowboy tracking down stolen horses or cattle from his American side,or channeling his inner British became Sherlock Holmes.
Scheckter turned on the Apple app “Mobile Me” (which he had downloaded) in his iPad, and tracked the iPad to a house in Maryland. Simultaneously he kept his Facebook friends updated, many of whom offered to go “gangsta” on the person they thought was the thief. Hugo however told the Washington Post he didn’t “want to call my mother in England and explain a Rambo-style operation gone wrong”.
Instead he informed the Police who went to the house and recovered the iPad. The man from whom the iPad was recovered said he purchased it from another man whom he described (note the use of “whom” not “who”). According to the Washington Post and Scheckter, Police and GW Police are investigating and looking for that man.
Hugo, a sophomore studying sports management, tweeted, “Just picked up my iPad from the station!! Pretty awesome!”
Apparently Will.i.am of Black Eye Peas also used Mobile Me to track down his stolen Bentley last year, which has prompted Scheckter to change his name to Scheck.t.er.
There is no technology yet to find the career of Lauryn Hill.
