Edward Senior, known by friends and family as Ted, had a bright future ahead of him.
The 22-year-old was a medical student attending Swansea University in Wales. He enjoyed school, where he also played on the rugby team. His family knew great things were in store for their hardworking, caring son — but in February, all of that came crashing down when Ted’s teammates decided to play a prank that went too far.
Ted and his rugby teammates would often talk to each other online on a message board they shared. Because it was private, Ted felt comfortable sharing a personal story about a fellow student he’d been intimate with. Little did he know that his “friends” would break that trust and share what he wrote publicly, humiliating him in the process.
