A report from Deadspin alleges that Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o's story about his girlfriend dying in a tragic car accident last fall was a hoax. In a detailed and lengthy investigative report, the website reportedly discovered that this is no public record of Te'o's girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, ever being enrolled at Stanford or in fact having ever existed.

The report goes on to quote a woman who claims her photos were used in fake social media accounts for Kekua.
